Over the past several years ( earliest 2002) and most recent 2012 I have had a lot of dealings with RDGH,and I don`t feel explaining what I and my brothers went through will help.
But a word to the good which is intended to help.
Their favourite word is PROTOCOL.If this used used too frequently smell a rat and question them.
If they say something you are not too sure about ,question them again and again till you are happy ,and if you are not happy escalate it up line.
If they do something that is against the norm, do not accept their explanation.
If you can,and I am under no illusion that you can.Get your lad to the Royal Hallamshire and do not hesitate any longer ,get him up there ASAP.The Norther General is fine ,but in my opinion the Hallamshire does it for me.I doubt that you will want to know my dealings with Rotherham just PM.If not the best of luck to you and yours.
Thank you for sharing. I can tell that was not easy.
Protocol. Yes, they used that word quite a lot so a big thanks for the heads up. Thankfully he is now in the NGH and he is showing signs of improvement. Not much but the signs are there. The nurses cant do enough for him and he feels really settled and looked after. He says he feels safer too so its all good or at least getting there
Thank you again, I hope your dealings with Rotherham are behind you now

We Will be making a formal complaint but I cant see us suing.
I dare say people on occasion have a good cause to sue but we just want the people who let our boy down dealing with.
Thanks for your post mate

Have you considered talking to your MP? They are often very good at helping out in areas like this as they can pull strings and put pressure on when needed. That's partly what we pay them to do, to help sort out issues we can't on our own.
Thankfully no need to contact my MP as he has now been moved.
He likes the Northern a lot more but is a bit miffed he cant get Wifi
Bloody kids eh
