I am new on here so hi all. My son is 42 years old and has been in a hospital in the South of the country for the last 7 weeks. During the last 3 weeks we have been advised by the hospital that he needs rehabilitation now. There are 3 places that were mentioned to us but have been told they are no longer available, 2 weeks ago we were told his needs were a level 1 now today we have been told needs are now level 2. We have requested that a rehabilitation place be located if possible in the North where we his family live. But nobody seems to be listening to us. We have been given no direct contact name and number of the person co ordinating the move and are therefore speaking with all sorts of different people who all give us different information and ideas. I can’t understand why a request can’t be put forward by the hospital to move him to The Walton Centre now whilst he still has clinical needs to be met and from there moved to rehabilitation in the area. Could we request the move or is it internal politics and what NHS area pays the bill? Sorry if I’m waffling here I just feel so stressed and don’t know what we can do?
