Our beloved Dad had severe dementia for the last ten years of his life. For his last three years he was cared for in a specialist unit of a care home. He had two Multi Discipline Team assessments for CHC, both MDTs assessed Dad as being eligible for CHC. The local panel of the CCG overturned the MDTs recommendations, saying to quote "His demonstrated needs are of a standard dementia care nature" therefore Dad was not eligible for CHC. It is a national scandal that CCGs can act illegally.
