We applied for a DFG for us to have a downstairs toilet built and some other minor disabled improvements to our council home.
We entered into formal complaint with our local council in january this year and still no formal letter of resolution in stage 1 of complaint procedure. That's 7 MONTHS down the line.
We had complained about three things:
1. When will works to our home under the Decent Homes Program commence and what support will we be given.
2. The lack of basic repairs to the home and even major health and safety issues.
3. Disabled adaptations under the DFG are required.
The Housing Ombudsman has just issued a formal warning to the council which according to him is very rare and I speak to him quite often by phone.
Then we had another bunch of assessors for the DFG work called my partner on monday saying they wanted to come and do a feasibility study for a DFG within 48 hours. The third such visit in 7 months. The last lot came 3 weeks ago to assess the feasibility of the building works and said it was fine.
The lot that came yesterday work for a private company who undertake DFG assssments for local government. Imagine our surprise to find they had two reports on us from an Occupational Therapist who works directly for the local council who has totally fabricated two "Full disabled needs assessment reports" which are full of blatant lies and she has never ever undertaken a disabled needs assessment. We have seen her once only for an hour when she refused to discuss anything other than basic works under the Decent Homes Program and nothing else.
The good news is the lady from the private company who came to see us yesterday is leaving the company and was very kind in letting us take copies of the OT's fake a dishonest assesssment reports which we had never seen before and we were 100% unaware of.
Bingo !!! Thanks !!!
Now we have perfect and irrefutable evidence against the OT.
So here we are 4 years after first asking for a DFG to enable us to adapt our home for our disabled needs.
We are 7 months into a council formal complaints procedure with no formal letter in response.
The Housing Ombudsman is on board and has issued a final warning to the council.
We are about to contact the Local Government Ombdusman who deals with the DFG application.
I have contacted the OTs governing body and I have all the paperwork for a "Fitness to practise complaint" ..... it takes 12 months at least.
I am becoming sick to death of medical professionals who are absolute liars !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
An occupational therapist would know how much damage this would cause to us.
These liars are paid to do a professional job.
Can anyone explain why medical professional in the care professions lie like this?
I don't understand why they would hate disabled people so much to hurt them by lying.
The council lying? Well yeah in a way we are used to that, but a qualified and accredited medical person who is part of the care services to blatantly lie? and very obviously so.
Sick of it.
Thankfully it is Headways open day and bbq today so we (my parthner and I) will be able to escape the distress for a while.
As a very ill person myself and 24/7 carer of another very ill person, it isnt good for medical professionals to lie like this. Their lies are damaging our health.
As long as my strength holds out we will continue to stay alive.
These people will kill us given the chance.
I really pity those who havent got my F/O attitude and who get taken apart by these lying professionals.
But they arent professionals, they dont know the meaning of the word.
They are charlatans, blaggards, theives and liars.
I was successful in having a Tribunal Judge on my partners DLA appeal removed from office a few years ago because she is/was a liar. So an Occupational Therapist is the next bare faced liar I have to deal with.
Not only for us but for the sake of all the other disabled people she may well have lied about.
Once a liar etc?
Love to all of you.
Bless you !
