Do you have to have a lawyer to appear before Qcat?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Queensland

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

It is a dispute with a section of a hospital but is more administrative than a medical one although treatment is an issue.

can you explain further about the claim that is being raised ?

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
An application to receive a subsidy (reimbursement) of travelling & accommodation whilst receiving medical treatment more than 50 kms from home has been denied (ruled ineligible) BUT the decision was made BEFORE all the recommended paperwork had been submitted. N.B. In breach of 6.2 of the Guidelines for a scheme known as PTSS.
This matter commenced back in April 2016 and relates to my wife aged 93 years treatment of Lymphoedema - post cancer!
The hospital in question TRIES to assert that they could provide the necessary treatment BUT I now have written proof that this was/is NOT SO! The amount of claim is approximately $1300.
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

so you are in the process of appealing the current order from QCAT, is that right ?
