Dear Mr Wilkes,
Subject: Care of Mrs Evelyn Lovelock and www.NHSCare.info
I have not received your reply to my letter of 2 April, ref WSS1.
You may remember that my letter asked questions, including those relating to correspondence between Wokingham Social Services and Battle Hospital. I also asked to be put in contact with Anju Bhatti, who you contracted during the important period of my mother's assessment prior to discharge from hospital. Anju Bhatti is an important witness and/or defendant should this dispute go through the courts. You may read all letters and background on www.NHSCare.info/EvelynLovelock.
As you know, I maintain that you and your staff have been drawn into unlawful actions related to misinforming and means testing of patients discharged from hospital into care homes. Patients such as my late mother are entitled to 100% NHS funding under the law.
In my letter of 2nd April I said that we would consider the matter of unsettled invoices after probate completed on my mother's estate. I spoke to Stuart Taylor last Friday, and he advised me that your claim is still £1924.12 - which we reject, of course. My records show that our claim, documented in the invoice ANNEB1 of 2nd Dec '02, is now £1623.74 plus late penalty payments (still accruing) leading to a current total of over £2209.
In June I received a hand-written compliments slip, dated 5 June, from Marjorie Ireland with an attached fax headed "Application for Joint Funded Placement", signed by Dr Van Wyk on 14th October 2002. Is this the copy of the Consultants Report I requested of you ?
I request that you answer both this letter and that of 2 April so that we may resolve this dispute as soon as possible. Nothing in this letter modifies or reduces in any way my claim for 'free continuing care' under the Coughlan Case for my mother.
(son of Evelyn Lovelock and executor of her estate)
