Rethink are supposed to be independent advocates but never attend the meetings as far as I have seen.  A patient is outnumbered by about 8 or 9 people and this can be very daunting.  There should be a representative at all meetings for all patients especially those who are very vulnerable like my daughter.  Rethink cannot possibly be independent advocates because of who they have on their Board and close ties with the hospital so I have found out.

Every question I asked the Consultant Psychiatrist he referred to Rethink and whilst Rethink deny standing in the way of the Consultant Psychiatrist’s questioning, they have nevertheless close ties to the hospital with whom they have on their Board. 

Now the Consultant Psychiatrist wants to stand in the way so it would appear of new solicitors being appointed  which has already been agreed by Elizabeth’s text message to the firm and to me.  What is he playing at – the previous firm of solicitors were recommended by the hospital and I was not pleased with them and did not feel they were representing my daughter fairly and also they seemed to be overly friendly with the team.  “I wonder where you got them from?” said the Consultant Psychiatrist.

 

I quoted to the team some shocking extracts from the research papers of Professor Taylor which I have looked up and read and I am apalled he is plying my daughter with a drug when he has done research into this drug as to how dangerous it is and overwhelmingly I could see by the various research papers this is a hospital that is not looking after patient’s welfare but gaining money through funding given by the drug manufacturer and using these poor vulnerable patients as human guinea pigs against their wishes.  I have heard they give drugs at dangerous levels above BNF recommendations.  I spoke to my daughter on the telephone today and she wants to be moved to downstairs as she feels so dizzy and is now petrified on heights.  She also said she wanted to move back to the local area but the care is so awful there in addition.  She now needs one to one care thanks to the NHS with the hopeless drugging up on powerful mind altering LSD-type highly addictive drugs they dish out to poor unsuspecting patients whose parents are often brainwashed and believe these doctors know what they are doing but they are experimenting at the Bethlem Royal Hospital against  a patient’s wishes.  

People think they are admitted to somewhere where it is world renowned and offers the very best in care like I did but how wrong I was!  This is the worst place on earth – like hell.  It is horrific how they treat the patients and now the CQC are involved – the chief executive will be investigating and I am not the only one unhappy here.  Some of the nurses are very nice – they are just doing their jobs but I think it is cruel and wrong to experiment on extremely vulneralble patients knowingly giving them drugs that would not comply with NICE guidelines if they were to read the research papers I have seen. They are putting patient’s lives at risk by this experimentation and I am furious this is allowed to go on and have written to the Royal Family.  THEY SHOULD PAY IF THEY WANT TO DO THEIR CLINICAL TRIALS FOR SOMEONE TO UNDERGO THEIR EXPERIMENTS AND NOT USE THE WEAK AND VULNERABLE PATIENTS AGAINST THEIR WISHES. 

 

Hopefully the CQC will do a thorough investigation as my daughter has been denied a drug free period and there is no way Professor Murray should be allowed to get away with this and wash his hands of the situation.  By putting someone on section whether they need it or not, it is wrong that a patient should be forcibly made to take medication against their wishes that is so highly dangerous and at risk to their lives.  They should pay for volunteers and not use the most weakened vulnerable people and then try to manipulate them and come between their families by saying he/she says the opposite of what has been said to the family.

 

The new solicitors are very good and I just want fair representation and now the Consultant Psyhiatrist and team are trying to stand between this appointment by saying it is up to Rethink.   They were saying she already had solicitors but these were recommended by the hospital and I was not impressed and could see how friendly they were with the team.    The CQC needs to look into this kind of manipulation and it is against NICE guidelines to exclude the family in the way they are doing.

 

When I refused to leave the premises and waited outside for the file I had left on the ward.  I was treated apallingly and all I wanted to do was to wait whilst the close family friend asked my daughter if she still wished to come back to the restaurant for a further 1 hr as she was keen to earlier on but I could see that the staff were NOT keen for her to go out again and insisted she went upstairs to sign their book.  Eventually she was pushed into this and got very upset and took it out on me which is exactly what they want to see.   It was comical the way they behaved as they were desperate she was not left alone with me for 2 minutes but my daughter was not prepared to do what they wanted in the first instance and I stuck up for her and said she should be allowed to remain with me but in the end she just flipped!  It was thanks to this male nurse constantly going on that this happened.  I bet they have not put this in their notes accurately but this was witnessed by a close family friend and she would agree with these comments and was extremely shocked at what she saw.   I was told the team would call the police if I did not leave the premises and that I would be escorted from the premises and I said I was going nowhere until I got my file back and offered that the close family friend came onto the ward to speak to my daughter herself and see if she wanted to go out for the agreed second hour allowed but she was not let on the ward to speak to my daughter.  Dissapointingly the Police did not call and I got fed up with waiting because it was obvious they did not call the police.  How shameful what is going on at this so called leading hospital.  

I did not visit today but tomorrow I will be calling with my daughter’s lovely pet kitten as I now have my car on the road.  I have a lead for this kitten and the grounds are beautiful.   No doubt I will not be welcome to take him onto the ward and I will take someone with me as my witness as to what is going on.  AS Elizabeth is so ill now she will like to see her pet kitten and driving does not take long to get there. 

They have dogs that come round to sniff for drugs –  how funny this is  –  it is the likes of the Professor Taylor and the consultant psychiatrist who are the culprits here with regard to the pushing of drugs – this is laughable.

I was waiting a long time for the police to come and arrest me and was disappointed as it would have saved me having to go down to the police station myself and offer my services.  In the meantime I called the local press.  They were very interested but were too afraid to do the story and I volunteered to do it for them!  I have got on to Panorama as I have looked at the research papers  of prof Taylor that are so horrifying.  I want the world to know about these!     Its all about money and the pharmaceutical industry experimenting on poor helpless people – this care under the Royal Bethlem world renowned hospital.  It is pure evil what is going on there. 

 

So I hung on and sat on the floor outside the ward for quite some time.   My daughter had reacted to the pressure being put on her by the team to go upstairs with them when she wanted to remain downstairs with me and my friend who she has known for years.  Anyway, I spoke up her her and said that she should remain downstairs and there was no point in her going upstairs if she was going to come out again.  Unfortunately she reacted in such a way that is just what the team want to see.  She just threw a drink over me.  However later in the day she telephone me and asked me to bring her things tomorrow.  I have requested she comes back home to live as they have ALL FAILED MY DAUGHTER WITH THE MOST SHOCKING AWFUL CARE EVER.   However it is not just my daughter they are failing I am worried for all the patients and now I am not allowed to visit any more.   I would like to see a host of celebrities visiting to brighten up the pain of these abused NHS patients the law of the UK have let down.  Noone cares about these people and I think this is disgusting when there is so much hype and money spent for show as regards the Olympics.  I am especially bitter as Elizabeth was once a very good runner and now she can hardly walk thankis to their disgusting care.  I do not belive the diagnosis and neither does anyone else.   Psychosis can be caused by the LSD like drugs they dish out themselves. – see Dr Ann Blake Tracy’s book.

 

I made sure the team knew that I could get help in my proposed demonstrations outside of the ward to highlight the abuse going on and I told the consultant psychiatrist the best way she could come off the Clozapine  which has the most shocking research papers against NICE guidelines”  Why is Prof Taylor plugging a very very harmful drug that he himself highlighted in his research papers as being so.  This is because the research he is doing  is being funded by the maufacturers.  I had them speechless when I mentioned these facts – this gave me great pleasure to reveal the horrifying truth that I want the world to know about this cruel abusive treatment of the most vulnerable of all patients against their wishes.  I want the Royal family to know about this and have written to most of them.   

Surrounded by so many staff she is clearly manipulated by this team who do not have her best interests at heart.  She sent me a text “GET ME OUT OF HERE MUM I WANT TO COME HOME”.  Today I failed to get any answers from the consultant psychiatrist as to why he put her on Metformine for diabetes and Clozapine which is totally against her wishes but now on a S3 the law says in this country they can force a patient to take medication.  Why on earth was her face bruised all over.  How did this happend.  Did staff do this to her?  Who knows what goes on behind closed doors.  No-one is giving any answers and that secrecy leads you to believe the worst that staff could be abusing my daughter and covering up for what has happened.  Anyway, regardless of what anyone thinks my daughter wants contact with  me as a mother that the team have tried their best to replace with someone else who would not visit and that would make their life easier.  I feel they have never ever been challenged in such a way before and hopefully many more people will speak out.  They manipulate a patient and a prime example of this is the solicitor – because the one recommended by the hospital did not seem to be acting in the best interests I recommendd another and Elizabeth happily agreed.  They are saying that REthink are involved and they are supposed to be independent but are not because how can they be when they have psychiatrists on their board.  I now want new advocates like Mind involved.

I am extremely worried for my daughter’s safety at this RESEARCH  HOSPITAL – THE BETHLEM ROYAL HOSPITAL.  I fear for her life.

They are cruel and abusive and manipulating –  that is the Royal Bethlem care for you!    It is shameful what is gong on for profit at this so called leading hospital.  Having said this comment – this comment is meant for the doctors and professors not for most of the nurses.

Anyway the local press in the area of the hospital  were afraid to do a story but I have approached the national press and really that is the attention I need.  You can look at the abuse more indepth on the website of Speak out against psychiatry.

So I was treated like a criminal today and was disappointed when the police did not turn up to arrest me.  So I decided to take the opportunity of introducing myself to the local police and offering my services on a voluntary basis.

The Consultant Psychiatrist was lost for words when he left the ward and I asked him where was the police  – I was sitting on the floor outside the ward and refusing to budge.

I was lucky enought to speak to someone from the CQC and have a chat with her about the abuse before she went on the ward! 

Please do not think that I want to rule my daughter’s life because I DO NOT.  I want her to have the very best of care and be independent but they have made her dependent  and more vulnerable than ever.  I just want to make sure she is placed in a decent environment.  I would have her home but ultimately she needs one to one care and this was not provided at local level and I have demanded a new social worker as I cannot speak to someone who was the claimant on the court papers and that is how I feel.

I would also like her to live in a nicer more peafeful area but most of wall she has suffered so much – I just want her to be safe and find it hard to trust the team as they have dealth with things properly.

I took a day off from work to attend the ward meeting but as usual it was a waste of time.  Every question you give to the consultant psychiatrist he refuses to answer and involves Rethink.  Rethink are the advocates and are closely associated with the hospital.  They have on their board Consultant Psychiatrists.  So, how can they be independent advocates and they apparently see my daughter on her own but the SHOULD ATTEND THE WARD MEETINGS.  She is outnumbered by the team and is not getting fair treatment.  The solicitor that was recommended was very very pally with the team so I noticed.  There was a Tribunal I got to find out about at the last minute.  This solicitor did NOT act in a professional manner in my opinion.  My daughter was stressed out and hates meetings and happened to comment along these lines – they told me about the Tribunal at the last minute but I still managed to get time off work.  At the end of the day she said ” do you really want this to go ahead”  – of course she said no, she is so drugged up now and weakened by this evil care that she had no strength to go forward with it and it was all called off.  It was a wasted day off work for me.  Anyway the Consultant Psychiatrist said “I wonder where you got  her from” and immediately I was suspicious – what kind of comment is this!  I did not like the way she compared herself to me as a mother yet she did not have a mentally ill daughter let along two who have been ill along with an elderly father who had Alzheimers and put on anti-psychotics –  what kind of comment is this!   Anyway I decided that my daughter should be represented properly at meetings and found a brilliant firm of solicitors that are local.  My daughter has texted the solicitors to say she is happy for them to act as far as I know and besides I know she is because she has told me so herself so why do RETHINK have to be involve in this.  Why is the Consultant Psychiatrist trying to hide behind Rethink who are supposed to be independent advocates.  If they had not got  any consultant psychiatrist on their board  I would be happy but instead I AM NOT HAPPY.  I want proper independent advocates for my daughter and NOT RETHINK.  I do not like the way the Consultant Psychiatrist is behaving in involving them all the time and hiding behind them!  He did not have a smile on his face today but I am now banned from visiting on the ward and had to have this meeting witnessed by a close family friend in a pokey little room downstairs and he had to have witnesses.  Anyway I was allowed just 1 hr to spend with my daughter before the meeting and there was only time to go to the canteen and a member of staff had to accompany listening to every word.  HE MUST BE PARANOID – HE NEEDS TREATMENT HIMSELF BY THE LOOKS OF IT!!  Anyway I bought Elizabeth lunch and in no time it was time to go back and I said I would like her in the meeting as I had disturbing research papers from Professor Taylor about how dangerous the drug Clozapine really was.  I have since found out that funding is being given to this hospital from the drug manufacturer themselves for Professor Taylor’s research into the most vulnerable patients against their wishes.  They also do not care less about the health of the patient as another patient I am in touch with said they raised the limits of medication beyond what was recommended.  PLEASE SEE SPEAK OUT AGAINST PSYCHIATRY – A WONDERFUL BLOG ALL ABOUT THIS HORRIFIC WARD.    

Having studied research papers which Professor David Taylor has been involved with there is no doubt this is a hospital where they take the most vulnerable patients, drug them up and experiment without any regard for their long term health.  I have discovered the awful truth and some of the papers are about the drug Clozapine and detail just how harmful they are.  This is not some kind of wonder drug and my daughter was against going on this and they have been extremely deceitful about the whole thing and all the time the Consultant Psychiatrist was trying to blame Rethink by saying “cant tell you anything it is not her wish for you to see the file etc etc.  I have no end of consents yet these are constantly dismissed.   It ws heartbreaking to have several calls from Elizabeth today whilst at work to say she did not feel like living, needed a walking stick and was most unhappy on the first floor.  She said she felt so ill and constantly dizzy.  They put her on this drug despite me telling them it is not advised for patients who have history of heart problems in the family – they put her on Metformine for diabetes and she did not know they had introduced Clozapine and this was all a week later because when I took her running she had heart problems and a doctor was called out.  HOW DISGUSTING THE TREATMENT OF THESE PATIENTS IS.   If someone is in such a state they do not know what they are doing they should not be given a drug just like that.   She did not have a clue was medication she was on and that is so very bad.

 

Anyway I thoughT the Royal family should know about this –  this hospital does not deserve the title of “Royal”.  Another patient who wrote a blog said  quite rightly so “how can  Professor Murray live with himself”.

 

I’m sorry for the patients and want to get some celebrity response to my appeal for visitors on the ward to cheer up what I call “the forgotten people – the victims of the pharmaceutical companies”.

 

Now my daughter wants to come home and leave that dreadful place and I want her home.

 

Now Rethink cannot attend next meeting as was agreed at the previous one so in any case I want to appoint someone else as advocacy.  I cant help but think Rethink seems never to attend meetings and also they seem to be domineered by the Consultant Psychiatrist and therefore do not appear to be independent and they have psychiatrists on their panel so that makes me wonder.

 

Tonight the reporter telephoned me.

 

I have had several phone calls from Elizabeth today and they were distressing.  I am sorry she went to this prison camp of a  hospital now. I thought this was a worldwide renowned hospital that provided the best of care but now I have found out what is going on.

I head read his research on this harmful drug and now my daughter has had a terrible reaction to this.  I have warned them that they had better get her off this RUBBISH.    All these drugs and none of them work but what was working was Orthomolecular care  – the whole site of the Royal Bethlem would be perfect for such a centre – the grounds are beautiful but the patients are locked away inside in a prison environment which is wrong. The hospital is specialising in research and using the most vulnerable patients like my daughter against their wishes and they do this by imposing a Section 3 which allows them to do what they like and force a patient against their wishes to take medication.   All along it has been Clozapine Clozapine Clozapine but this is no wonder drug and has affected my daughter’s heart and why have they put her on a medication for diabetes – this is what I want to know. 

 

Meanwhile Professor Murray has written the following:

I am sorry but you need to take up these issues with the Bethlem staff

This is not good enough.

     

I got loads of messages from Elizabeth asking if I was coming up and to bring her various things.  When I eventually arrived she was not in a good way.  She had asked me to bring a walking stick of all things and this is because she feels constantly dizzy.  Elizabeth is also complaining of heart problems and naturally I want her off this chemical. 

Reading Professor Tracy’s research papers I am extremely worried now – not only is she on Clozapine but also Metaphormine.  I was told this is for diabetes.   All these drugs and none are doing her any good.  Clozapine is extremely dangerous and can lead to death.  Elizabeth said she felt so ill and had to lie down.  The doctor was called out prior to my visit. 

 

I wrote to Professor Murray and he sent me a one line email just to say he was sorry I am not happy.  I told him I expected him to be involved in her treatment and now I want something done about things.  Naturally I am extremely unhappy about this drug as there is a history of heart problems in the family. 

All they are doing is using these poor vulnerable patients instead of paying and getting other people to do their work. 

I cannot stand to see any m ore of this cruel treatment and want her released to come home. 

“I want to come home Mum”.    I have heard that more than once but the fact of the matter is my daughter was suffering from Akathisia – she said it was like wanting to crawl out of your skin.    Her once perfect placid behaviour changed from the minute she was prescribed Cipralix by her GP and wanted to take herself off this awful drug that brought her face up in sores and caused her so much pain.  Unfortunately at the time I had no idea about these drugs and how dangerous they are and thought it was a good thing as she was due to go to Italy for a chance of a lifetime.   Unfortunately this was a disaster and of course her behaviour brought her into conflict with not just myself but the rest of the family.

To all those people who have distanced themselves from the person they once cared for because of their behaviour I want you to know that it is these drugs that are the cause.   Please read the wonderful book by Dr Ann Blake Tracy called Prozac Panacea Pandora. 

I thought at the time she was going through a bad phase but then I found out some terrible facts and Police were involved –  I cannot say more than this.   I put her behaviour down to this and nothing more but it brought her into conflict with all of the family and soon friends disappeared – her behaviour was unrecognisable.    

I cannot go into every detail obviously but something happened to me and Elizabeth was taken into hospital and she was in a good hospital at the time outside of this area but then they brought her back to the local area and unfortunately the ward was horrendous with rooms the size of cubicles at the time.  There were mixed wards and this brought Elizabeth into contact with some unsavoury characters – although I have to say that most of the people are extremely nice and for anyone who thinks they are just violent criminals or drug takers that is not true.  Many come from very nice backgrounds and have caring families for a start.  However, there are times when the person you care for going through a mental breakdown pushes the family away or blames the family for their position and then along come the teams of psychologists and so called experts.   Instead of coming to visit the family home and taking a real interest they make assumptions – for instance one “expert” has said “an abusive cruel mother”  people who are mentally ill sometimes push away the closest member of family but when confronted by her sister with what had been written in the files that she was hit as a child  Elizabeth was very very angry and said she did not say that.   On this awful medication the teams manipulate patients like putty in their hands – they make out they are doing what the patient wants but before she went into hospital she was more capable of knowing what she was signing for and agreeing to and was in the belief she would be given a drug free period by Professor Murray.  This has not been carried out and he has now distanced himself and works for the outpatients division.   I would never ever have wanted her to go to this hospital if the promise had not been a drug free assessment.  Why promise something when they do not carry things out in accordance with the leading professor.   All they wanted her for is to experiment further and treat her like a human guinea pig whilst she is weak and vulnerable and surrounded by 8 – 9 members of a team in a meeting.  She absolutely dreads going to these meetings large team and a lot of them are just students that come along so this is used for training purposes as well.  This is supposed to be one of the leading and best hospitals in the world but IT IS FAR FROM THAT –  WHEN PATIENT’S HUMAN RIGHTS ARE TAKEN AWAY BY LAW THROUGH THE BULLYING OF CLOSEST RELATIVES TO ENABLE A SECTION 3 TO BE PUT IN PLACE THEN THE LAW NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT AND PSYCHIATRISTS MADE ACCOUNTABLE.

They think they are above the law and it is no wonder they sit there and smile smugly.  There is no protection for a truly vulnerable patient and even the advocates – they have no powers are closely associated with the hospital which makes you wonder if there is 100% true representation of the patients rights and besides if they do not have any powers like all the other organisations what good is this. 

I am sorry with all my heart that Elizabeth is where she is and I am prepared to have her back home.   My life is already being threatened by someone she has associated herself with at local level and this person has threatened me in phone calls and my neighbours were also threatened by this person who was allowed out unescorted on Section 3 locally.  I am truly worried for her life under this hospital and know that this level of experiementation can lead to death when she has been on so much medication and for what –  this consultant psychiatrist has yet to give me proof of the diagnosis  – how can you prove such a thing when there are multiple diagnoses in the files.   How can you properly assess someone without a drug free period as promised by Professor Murray?  How can you come to such a conclusion when the only way is to open up someone’s head – there are no such tests!  It is all based on trial and error and experimentation with various drugs.   Not only are poor animals used in such experiments but the most vulnerable of people who do not have the strength to speak up.   The passing of the safety of these drugs is another huge scam where ghostwriters are employed for instance.  The CCHR and Professor Healy as well as Dr Ann Blake Tracy all highlight this fact – you need to read their books to appreciate the true depth of the deception going on.  The CCHR have done some wonderful videos and so has Dr Ann Blake Tracy but one of the best ones is by the on You Tube “Clozapine or Clozaril”.   

There is one rule locally for Section 3 and I have all this in writing in a letter from the Assistant Director of Adults Social Care who says that patients being informally admitted to hospital and those detaind under the Mental Health ACt 1983 as amended 2007 have a right to be treated with dignity and respect and treated with the least restrictive opltion, which may include authorised periods of unescorted leave frmt he ward and hospital setting.  She then goes on to say she is satisfied that the multidisciplinary team have assessed my daughter and she has capacity to make decisions.   

The team like to say that she has capacity when it suits them.   However there have been times when my daughter has been so badly affected by the drugs given that act like LSD that of course she has NO mental capacity and yet the team say she has.   Why then did the team not allow the family to have Power of Attorney to help her with care etc as she finds it difficult to speak up – and no wonder why on all these drugs.  As for thePower of Attorney despite Elizabeth writting a letter giving consent as she has done for sight of the files several times, the team then turn around and say we cannot give written proof she knows she is doing which is required by my solicitor in order to go forward and apply to the court.    They are not prepared to do this yet they say it in their letter she knows what she is doing.   

What worries me is that now Elizabeth is experiencing heart problems already on Clozapine and so I am going to write a letter to the Consultant Psychiatrist asking her to be taken off this medication.

This is against her wishes to be put on Clozapine and it is horrific what this hospital are doing and the way they are treating the family.  I just want the world to know about it.

I want her back home now until the local team come up with a better solution as she needs to be independent but this hospital is so awful I cannot stand any more to watch my daughter suffer under their apalling drug pushing experimental “care”.  They are truly wicked and evil to do this.
