As some of you might know I applied for CHCF for my OH and it was refused twice - I believe wrongly as much of the information upon which the decisions were based came from people who hardly knew him!
He died in February, but, the previous November I had appealed. This appeal has just come tp the top of the list at long last, but in order to put together my arguments I have had to go through his every problem in minute detail - a traumatic activity that I have found very upsetting.
I looked into having some sort of legal representation from an expert in the field, but this would cost me £1000. I also debated whether to leave it lie, as he is now not alive; but I do think that the whole process was conducted wrongly and feel I need to have the chance to get them to re=examine what went on. I also feel uncomfortable about the money - if they do grant the appeal they will owe me quite a bit of money which could go towards someone else's needs. But we virtually wiped out our savings to find his care and, as I am about to move house, it will help me to feel more financially secure.
My question is this: has anyone else on here ever attended one of these appeal tribunals? Any experiences that they might be able to pass on would be appreciated. In my case this will take place on zoom, given the current circumstances.
