Dear Mr Wilkes,
Subject: Care of Mrs Evelyn Lovelock and www.NHSCare.info
You may recall my last letter of two years ago, Ref: WSS2.RTF 30 September 2003, and the fact that these letters are public on the web site above. I maintained 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. I understood from Stuart Taylor that your claim was still £1924.12 and not accruing interest. Our claim against you, originally £1623.74 is still accruing late penalty payments. Two years ago I explained this was then a total of over £2209. I requested that you answer my letters so that we might resolve the dispute as soon as possible. I have no record of you answering my letter.
This information has now been in the public domain for two years and is unresolved. I spoke to Stuart Taylor again last Thursday, but he was unable to confirm your claim of £1924.12 existed. He said Laura Taylor would contact me when she returned from holiday.
I have been asked jointly by Bleddyn Hancock, General Secretary of S.Wales Nacods, and our legal adviser Derek Cole to send you the enclosed. This includes the front page of NHSCare.info, quoting the Law Society, and the recent NACODS Press Release. Both NACODS and our campaign team www.nhscare.info are determined to enforce in the courts the law clearly established by the Coughlan decision.
