On Tuesday 2 August 2011 George Trevithick turned up early at Dave's house for the meeting.  Helen attended for the first half but was overheating and left.  George presented the case that he had not read all the information about the complaint so that he didn't approach the meeting with a biased or prejudicial attitude.  An interesting excuse for not doing his homework but understandable given the volume of information available.  So Dave tried to provide an overview.  George was receptive and understanding and had a lot of useful information and ideas.  Primarily he suggested a meeting with the Head of Services for Sumshire to see if this might help find a resolution.  In no way was this intended to be instead of a stage 2 'Independent Investigation' but George thought it was worth giving it a go.  That was left for Dave to decide after the meeting.

Some of the issues that arose in the meeting:

1. George suggested that Dave might read a document entitled "Getting the Best from Complaints" which was produced by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES).  Incidentally it turns out it is currently the Department for Education (DfE) and was, prior to being the DfES, the Department for Education and Employment (DfEE).  It seems they don't really understand what they are about.

2. On the subject of the complaint against the hospital, and particularly against Sandy Shaw, George suggested Dave might look into the complaints procedure at the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

3. George also suggested looking into the National Youth Advocacy Service (NYAS) if Helen wanted to make a complaint.

4. If Dave wanted to get all the information the Children Services have on them he could make a Subject Access Request to the relevant council.

5. He also mentioned a line from Muse's Uprising "And endless red tape to keep the truth confined." Worth a listen.

Dave considered that a meeting with the Head of Services for Sumshire was a possibility and slept on the idea.  The next day he sent the following email to George.

George responded imediately...
