not sure if you can help me with this, I hope so.   I am planning to change from a care provider to health budget for my daughter. she has 24/7 care and receives her funding from CHC.   I am wishing to keep the same P.A.s (or most of them) as she is familiar with them and they with her.   they are employed by care provider, but care provider use her funding to pay P.A.s   the care provider has threatened me with his legal team as says I cannot take P.A.s with us.   I have seen one of their contracts with care provider and cannot see anything regarding this in there.
it was mentioned on another discussion board on scope of the possibility of paying the care provider for taking them.   can we do that.   they all want to come with us.   or is there any other route I can take.  I feel that they are taking away our freedom to choose what suits my daughter.
thank you.
