It is these people that are the problem.
Yes. Shame on children, disabled people and pensioners for not propping up the NHS.

Thank you for that. Its certainly appreciated. However Ive been able to secure some funds from my bank. I got a loan and an extension to my OD so If I take him private I can get hold of just over £11,000 at short notice. The wheels have been put in motion and he will be going to the NGH hopefully this week, In the mean time im going to be getting in touch with a few private hospitals, see where the land lies
Thank you again for taking the time to post

Before I post an update I just want to apologize to the people who have pm'd me as I am unable to answer right now Im just so angry and rather upset.
Last night I almost lost my boy. Through incompetence of the highest order he was given medication he is allergic to and the hospital know this.
If it were not for the actions of his mum who after talking to him on the phone grabbed a cab, went to the hospital and had to BEGGED THEM to stop administering this medication he could very well be dead.
Last night was the worst of our lives.
If you have anyone in Rotherham hospital get them the hell out!!!
If you cant remove them then please please please make sure someone knows EXACTLY what medication should be given and check EVERYTHING that is administered!
Thank you for reading and as soon as I can Ill be replying to all the messages
Thank you

It has taken a lot for me to comment as I was sure that this was going down the route of legal action against the NHS which I cannot condone.However I am not sure if my comments are worth anything to you H.D.

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.

Why shouldn't action be taken against the NHS if negligence/incompetence is shown to have taken place?

I guess the poster is worried about NHS budgets been wasted on legal bods - which I understand but it gives incompetence, dangerous incompetence at that a free pass and chance to continue. But in this case it's hard not to think of a reason why the OP shouldn't start legal action - it's a mess.

By the sounds of the thread I don't get the impression Happy Daddy is interested in suing the hospital, just wants someone to help his son, like anyone in his situation. I've had the absolute opposite experience at Rotherham and was treated excellently, but regardless, if you aren't getting the care you feel you should be and have no trust in the clinicians then it's definitely worth escalating this ASAP to get him moved.

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.

Yes, I wouldn't want to be treated at Rotherham. NG is a teaching hospital.

Hi everyone. I will respond to each post individually however before i can do that (later this evening) I wanted to post an update
He is now in the NGH...Phew!
He got there yesterday and had a settled night. His meds have been altered and the new ones seem to be helping a little, his drip is out, the tube in his stomach is out
He may still be in hospital for a while, hopefully not but if he needs to be then at least he is somewhere his mum and me have more faith in.
The NGH have decided to re do all his tests as they have doubts of he results so they want to double check. This is encouraging and hopefully the docs at the Northern can tie down whats wrong quick smart.
As I say I will answer everyones posts individually but for now I wanted to update you all and also say a huge thanks to all who have posted and everyone who has messaged me about this. Its been a big help and I have got someuseful info which helped out at the hospital.
As with the thread, Ill be replying to all the messages this evening
Thank you all once again
From one Very Happy Daddy

It is these people that are the problem. I am a net contributor so it is not me that causes public services to be underfunded. In fact, it is solely because of people like me (and you) that these public services exist at all.

So, please don't bite the hand that feeds the people.
I hope you're just trolling for a laugh and don't seriously think in this way.

I think he's from the same school as Michael Gove, demanding everyone be better than average.

Great news Happy Daddy. Hope your lad is finally on the mend.

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
