Dear Mrs Moore,
Subject: Care of Mrs Evelyn Lovelock and Revised TVHA Criteria
Many thanks for the copy of "NHS Continuing Care Eligibility Criteria, Assessment and Application Across The Thames Valley - Guidance for practitioners" dated January 2003, which I understand you intend to make effective this February.
I enclose the document TVHA Criteria "Catastrophically Unlawful" from my legal advisor, Derek Cole. who has won cases all over the country by advancing similar arguments.
It provides a detailed analysis of your document. I hope you find it of value.
In his summary he says: "The Thames Valley Health Authority (TVHA) 'eligibility criteria' intended to be introduced on 1st February, 2003 are catastrophically unlawful and in open defiance of the Court of Appeal."
He also says, "The TVHA criteria are so monumentally unlawful that I am looking into the possibility that officers who adopt or implement them are personally liable for 'misfeasance in public office'."
This letter, as others in my mother's case, will be found on the "need to know" site above. Derek Coles's document will appear on the "public" site.
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 Nearest Relative)
