KICKED OUT OF NHS

I am a 62 yr old woman who suffered a trauma injury 8th July 2017, very little imput from Pain Management,  no physio , no mental heath , loss of use of right leg. Transferred from one hospital trust to another with my knowledge,  now denied treatment from that trust, for alleged mental health, without ever being seen. Ignored by GP, now removed from their list. No medication or medical input since June. I'm lost,  alone and ...... afraid. 
I never knew  in this country, you can be denied treatment,  and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.
I have fought for over 4 years to stay on my feet and have absolutely nowhere to turn 
Stay strong  .... wish I could

    Why has the GP removed you from their list?

    Why were you also denied treatment?

    Never easy to comment when you have what appears to be less than half the picture.

    Welcome to the community @Lesanne :) I'm sorry to hear that you're having such a difficult time at the moment. It's difficult to say why all this might have happened, as we don't know all of the details. Things can sometimes go wrong, and services can be disjointed sadly.

    Have you ever had a needs assessment from your local authority?

    Impossible to comment further as it seems you've only given part of the story. I don't understand why you've been refused treatment and why you've been removed from your GP surgery.

    Could you change GP surgeries @lesanne? Is there another one in your area that you could travel to? 

    If you feel as though you could benefit from getting a needs assessment from your local authority, you can apply for one by putting your postcode into this gov.uk page and following the steps. This is also something we'd be happy to get started for you, if that'd be easier? If you'd like to know more about this, please email us on [email protected] 

    I'm sure it must be exhausting to fight for that long, but you deserve to get the support you need :)

    Hi @Lesanne So sorry you are having such a difficult time. Are you eligible for treatment under the NHS not everyone is ?

    As stated earlier, we’re not getting anything like the full story here. You cannot be “kicked out” of the NHS. The circumstances in which you can be denied access to services are well known and very limited. If any of those were to apply then no-one here can help you. You will need legal advice.

    Trust me you can get kicked out of the NHS and I've got the paperwork here to prove it. No, face to face, no consultation, nothing. I had yet another letter today, copied into a Gp letter to a doctor who was not my GP, I am so glad in 4 + yrs I never went to a appointment  alone. I have absolutely no trust in the NHS, I have no intention of trying anymore to register with another gp, whats the point i was a patient there for over 37 yrs.

    If I had assaulted an emergency worker I would be able to get access to medication.

    Anyway please make no further comments,  I have been down all routes in the last 6 months. 

    I haven't got the energy or time to go down the legal route. 

    I'm sick of trying 😒

    Not really much to comment on is there. You’ve been asked to explain and you appear to wish to be actively evasive. If you have something to say then by all means say it but if you’re looking for support I’m afraid it will take a lot more than “Trust me…”. I’m bewildered as to why you would post on a forum if you’re not going to paint any of the picture. What is it you’re looking to gain here?

    OMG, first time here, wish I hadn't have bothered,  thanks for you thrashing.

    I don't see any "thrashing." Surely you can see why we're asking questions. You came here, posted a thread with little information. Members have asked you questions, which you haven't answered... other than "trust me." We don't understand the reason why you posted if you didn't want people to comment.

    It’s quite simple. Give us something to engage with. You are clearly doing anything but painting the full picture. What outcome were you expecting. I’m sorry if you now think we’re as evil as the NHS but seriously… there is literally no story here. Nothing to comment on at all so why bother. Again, what is it you want? Ranting at the NHS may or may not be justified. We’d be happy to empathise/sympathise or even assist if we had even the foggiest idea what you’re talking about but… we don’t. 

    Yes it’s your first time here. Is this the impression you wanted to make?

    Hi @Lesanne - & welcome to the community. I've had difficulty with many NHS Drs, but felt I needed to work with them so they understood. I had my last rheumatologist say that my neurological problems were worse than my rheumatological problems, & that he would normally refer me to his colleagues (neurologist & neurosurgeon), but, I'd already seen them. He didn't know what to suggest other than he would be happy to support me with a referral to a USA based neurosurgeon I knew, but I was concerned that if I received surgery in the USA & had problems back here in the UK what would happen? I haven't seen a consultant in probably 10 years. Does that mean Drs haven't tried to help me? It happens, sometimes there are no appropriate answers, & the NHS can't help. Has that happened to you?
    I'm sorry you don't see that everyone here would be willing to advise if we knew what your grievance exactly was.
    Now a person I knew got denied care from her GP surgery as she was making increasing demands upon them; booking consultations prior to needing them, etc. but this was some time ago. What has happened with yourself?
    If you don't let us know what the problem(s) are, how can we help?

    Hi @Lesanne,

    Having read back through the thread, am I right in thinking that perhaps you just wanted to use this thread to vent, rather than to receive advice on what you could do? It's fine if so, and I'm sorry if we misunderstood the kind of response you were hoping for. 

    It does sound as though you have a lot on your plate, and that this has been getting you down. I appreciate that you don't want to engage with NHS services at the moment, but it's important you get some support if you need it. Do you have friends or family you can lean on for emotional or practical support? I know you've mentioned physical conditions here, but if you ever need support with your mental health you can use the Hub of Hope to find mental health support from charities and other organisations local to you. Our offer to start a social care referral for you with your local authority also still stands, so please do get in touch with us via email if that's something you'd like to discuss further. 

    I'm sorry if you feel as though other members were 'thrashing' you. For future reference, you can report any posts or comments that you think break our house rules by using the 'flag' function underneath the comment or post. The community team can then review this. 


    As a reminder to everyone on the thread: please ensure that your tone remains polite and friendly where possible. Other members aren't obligated to share more information about their situation if they're not comfortable doing so, and it's important to remember that some people may post to get things off of their chest, rather than to receive practical advice as such. If you don't feel as though you can offer advice on a situation due to a lack of information, there's no pressure on you to respond. 

    I've reopened this thread for now in case you wish to respond @Lesanne, but I can close it again (which locks the thread) if you'd prefer for no further comments to be made. I'll also re-close the thread if the discussion becomes uncivil.
