18th June 2012 ~ Got a letter from the HSE saying they need the following from Robert’s consultant neurologist:

  1. A copy of Robert’s referral to the NRH for the required treatment
  2. A copy of the the NRH acknowledgement of the hospital’s referral confirming Robert’s place on the waiting list for the required treatment and the expected duration of the waiting time; and
  3. Exact details of how and the extent to which the condition of the patient will deteriorate due to the wait beyond what can be expected to be achieved by a more timely intervention.

This last detail is simply unquantifiable in a case of acquired brain injury as far as I’m aware ~ but I’d love to be proved wrong.

Two weeks have gone by since the HSE heard from Robert’s consultant on the 31st of May with the appeal support ~ that’s two weeks wasted on the appeal process.
