    Just seen this on the side banners - it might apply to someone on the elite. I think getting your GP to complete his set of paperwork might be a bit daunting

    Thanks mhoc for flagging this up. My mum is in a similar position to the lady quoted and we've sent for a claim form from the council. There seems to be a number of hoops to jump through but potentially worth it, especially as she wants to share any windfall between the grandchildren :-)
