I am writing to get a few things clarified with regards to My Husband A who was on a DOLS safeguarding pathway in 2016-2017 while a Resident at a Care Home in Leicestershire.
A Best Interest Assessor S deemed me not fit for purpose , to become my Husbands Relevant Persons Advocate at the time He lost Mental Capacity.
S decided this via a 15 minute phone call without ever meeting me.
THE DOLS CODE OF PRACTICE , MINISTRY OF JUSTICE , MENTAL CAPACITY ACT 2005, DEPRIVATION OF LIBERTY SAFEGUARDS CODE OF PRACTICE SUPPLEMENTS ,THE MAIN MENTAL CAPACITY PRACTICE 2008.
At the time of this DOLS APPLICATION, I WAS THE DONER, Due to the fact that i was Mr AS Lasting Power of Attorney.
THE GUIDANCE POLICY States Appropriate Person, a Family Member or other Private Person,individual able and willing to support and represent an Adult,instead of an Advocate.b
Could you please advise me why S the BIA involved in the case, refused to allow me to become my Husbands Relevant Persons Advocate at the time?,
Please disclose the reasons For her Decision?
Was it because she thought that i did not have the intellectual, capacity?, or the physical capacity?, or mental capacity? to do things in my Husbands best interest at the time, i would like to have the reasons in writing, as to why S thoughti was not fit for purpose to become A RPA at the time.?
I repute any mention of lack of mental capacity and intellectual intelligence to become Andrews RPA, because at this time i was working as a Nurse at University Hospitals of Leicester, and if they did not deem that i was not fit for practice i would be dismissed forthwith..
I am putting my own Consultation into the new mental capacity Act,and the new Liberty protection safeguards..
As well as doing the same for a NGO that i am Chairperson of.
Can you please clarify why also my Husbands Stepsons L and S were never ever contacted by S, for their input into their Fathers DOLS Application, totally not involving the Nearest Relatives as in my Two Sons totally breached the DOLS Policy at the time.
To be honest, i was totally disgusted by S, BIA conduct at the time.
Making her decisions based on a 15 minute phone call without ever meeting me in Person, and by her deliberately going into the home earlier than arranged to assess my Husband, as we had agreed to meet up at 11am on the day, but when i got there, she had already done the assessment and left.
to be honest the whole DOLS process was a nightmare for me, with regards to S the BIA.
Could you please provide the answers to my Questions.?
Kind Regards Alison Stevens. .
