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. 

ANYONE WANTING PERMISSION WRITE TO permissions@rcpsych.ac.uk

To respond to the shocking research highlighted in the British Journal of Psychiatry you can respond to this article at http://bjp.rcpsych.org/cgl/eletter-submit/194/2/165 which is published by the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

It is truly shocking as they compare reasons for discontinuation of clozapine with reasons for discontinuation of risperidone long-acting injection in age-matched individuals trreated in the same clinical environment.

The Royal Bethlem Hospital SLAM is there for Research and using the most vulnerable people in order to conduct their research against their wishes or often they are too weak to object.  My daughter is such a case.   She told me she had been given a new tablet but did not know what it was and of course when I spoke up on her behalf they would not say anything but kept saying –  it is my daughter’s wish for family not to know but that is not true because she signed no end of declarations and letters – even one on an official form to say that she DID want family to know.  At the end of the day this is manipulation on their part.  I am afraid the solicitor originally appointed to attend a Tribunal I knew nothing about until the last minute seemed to be extremely friendly with the team and was recommended by the team.  Rethink  are also very very closely related to the hospital and are supposed to be independent advocates however having said that the women I have spoken to from Rethink are extremely nice but at the end of the day they have no powers.    

I want the world to know that yesterday I took my daughter out running as I only have between 1 – 2 hrs escorted leave –  Rethink deny this has anything to do with them.  The whole family are so very unhappy with the Royal Bethlem Hospital –  this hospital is abusing my daughter’s human rights as she has hardly any fresh air.  She has never been taken swimming and now just wants to lie down – she has no energy – sometimes in bed at 5 – 6 pm.   What wicked awful evil care at the “Royal” Bethlem Hospital.   How can they call themselves “Royal”.  They do not deserve such a title in my opinion.   I cannot print or publish the above reports due to copyright but I have the links above and have written for permission.

When the nurse told me yesterday that a doctor had been called out to examine my daughter because of her high pulse rate and she complained of heart problems whilst out running I then demanded to know what medication they put her on and this has been covered up in secrecy and my daughter has only just got her details of medication and thought she was on a similar sounding medication to METFORMINE  She was totally unaware of what they had given her in the first instance but feels pressurised by the team.  I know only too well how that feels.  I myself have been bullied and harrassed both at local level – the Claimant being her social worker from the local area.  The safeguarding team solicitor was particularly bullying towards me in the local area on behalf of the Assistant Director of Legal Services London Borough of ENFIELD!  I have all the court papers and am reading them now.  I also have t he witness statement from an Approved Mental Health Professional of the social services authority London Borough of Southwark based at the Maudsley Hospital Denmark Hill London SE5 8AZ.    The Psychiatrist is mentioned applying for a first medical recommendationfor detention under Section 3 MHA on 22.05.12.  Apparently my daughter refused to see him and another doctor and then they got to see her along with 2 nurses.  She remained guarded and suspicious throughout and gave brief and contradictory anwers to questions.  She is so mixed up and chemically brainwashed but the whole family are unhappy with the “care” which amounts to drug pushing at the Maudsley and know that she wants to leave this awful place.  She has texted me without anyone being present and begged for me to get her out.  Now I want her to come home as I hate what I see is going on in the vile place where lots of staff go off sick.   In the court papers she is not being compliant apparently with the team who made no attempt to do what Professor Murray said and take her off the medication in a decent manner.  I have been slated and there is mention of my controlling her money – but just look at what has gone on at local level.   What help has been available to my daughter who is vulnerable –  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  One week she spent all her money and nothing was left for food.  Food was junk food on a regular basis.  What was missing from the scheme was company “noone knocks on my door Mum”  She was lacking in friends as none are in touch any more with her – friends do not understand but I will always be there for my daughter no matter what.   I do not want to control her money – I would like someone like Mind involved or the Quakers.  I want honest decent people to be involved – I do not trust anyone from social services in this respect because they have done NOTHING.  The team have ganged up on me – all of them using the law against me.  They have refused to put in writing their reasons why I have to be escorted but in the court papers they say that there is considerable concern that I am putting my daughter under constant pressure to stop her medication  – This is a complete and utter lie.   I would never ever tell her to stop her medication –  it was my daughter who tried this however I wish for it to be minimal alongside the supplements which her Orthomolecular Psychiatrist had prescribed.  None of the medications have worked and they have given her terrible terrible side effects but whenever she has complained and this has been in front of friends and family the team do absolutely NOTHING.   It was attempted to take her off 50mg of Seroquel but now I know from Dr Tracy that such a reduction is not possible – the only way is by miniscule amounts on a day to day basis over a period of 1 – 2 years.   I am not qualified to do this for my daughter – I wish I was.  There is noone to help me – I know it is HER wish however the team are wrong I have never ever put pressure on her – however she has a right to know how dangerous these drugs are and the Royal Bethlem do not give much away in terms of this.  I have done a lot of research and have provided them with “Prozac Panacea Pandora” by Dr Ann Blake Tracy, Pharmageddon by Professor Healy and the creator of such drugs Dr Candace Pert – Molecules of Emotion.  I have given them research details etc but this hospital do not care they just want to use my daughter to research purposes backed by the local teams of social services and they have all ganged up.   Yesterday my daughter had heart problems whilst out with me – they called a doctor and I demanded to know what the drug was.  I stood there in front of the office until I got told eventually – they did not want me to know but now I have found out –  unknown to my daughter the team at Royal Bethlem under the Consultant Psychiatrist and leading Professors have had their way.  They have put her on Clozapine and I want everyone to know about their own research on this extremely harmful drug.  I think my daughter may also be on something else as well.  They clearly could not care less about human rights and the law of this country is disgusting.  The law fails to protect the most vulnerable of patients like my daughter – like my elderly father at 90 on anti-psychotics, like my younger daughter – just a child on anti-psychotics.   How can these members of staff live with themselves and be happy about the job they do.  I would rather die than do such a job that is killing vulnerable patients like my daughter.

By the way – here is another link for another one of their terrible experiments for everyone to know about :  http://tpp.sagepub.com  called Therapeutic Advances in Psychopharmacology.  Melperone in Treatment – Refractory Schizophrenia: a case series.  This is produced by the British Association for Psychopharmacology.  Anyone wanting reprints – http//www.sagepub.com/journalsReprints.nav  also permissions –
http.//www.sagepub.com/journalsPermissions.nav.  REF  DOI: 10.1177/2045125311399800.  I have looked at these papers and they are truly shocking again Professor David Taylor is involved in this research. 

These patients are not paid volunteers –  they are put on sections and forced to take these drugs against their wishes. 

Please also look at You Tube – just type in  “Clozapine not clozaril”  – a very informative video on this terrible drug that they push at the Royal Bethlem Hospital and then look at the research papers by Professor Taylor – that I have referred to at the top of the page.  

When my daughter was first admitted to this so called top leading hospital she had a letter from Professor Robin Murray who clearly stated she would get a drug free period of assessment.   The next thing I knew she was offered Clozapine by two members of staff and she flatly refused.  She was then put on Olanzapine and this was mixed with Seroquel and she said “I do not know what tablets to take Mum”.  I was in despair as there is no way I would have wanted her to go to this hospital if I had known they were going to do this.  I thought this was a leading hospital where she would get the very best of care.  That is not true at all.  Mixing two drugs together like this throws someone off balance and then came the sanctions –  first of all Section 2 and then I was going to be take to court to force me into agreeing to Section 3 – I received call after call whilst at work harrassing me on this stating they would replace me as nearest relative but the person they wanted to replace me with – her father is swamped with the care of his elderly parents right now and so hardly visits.  This is what they want no doubt.   I visit Elizabeth every weekend and she is very unhappy there on this dreadful ward in this awful hospital that I can only describe as hell on earth.  They are solely interested in research from what it would appear and whilst they do all the tests they seem just keen to try out different drugs and use patients against their wishes as human guinea pigs.  This is what is going on under SLAM –  Royal Bethlem Hospital National Psychosis Unit.   Unfortunately my daughter is not in a good place right now and I am desperate to get her out.  I have got research papers by Prof Taylor about “reasons for discontinuing Clozapine and other research papers I have obtained.  I am so concerned because today I was only allowed 1 hr escorted leave and this was all the fresh air she got in the grounds outside that awful ward.   Patients are wandering up and down with nothing to do on the wards.  Staff seem to go off sick quite often.  On the boards are outings supposed to be scheduled at the weekends but nothing is going on because a member of staff is off sick so I understand. 

I took with me a picnic to have outside and all the time a member of staff was watching.   Elizabeth has texted me to say “Get me out of here” the other day.  I am so sorry she is there in that dreadful place. 

I cannot say all the staff are bad – there are some nice nurses but this Consultant Psychiatrist has gone against my daughter’s wishes.  He has failed to provide proof of diagnosis – failed to respect the advice of Prof Murray that she should have a drug free assessment.   Some of the nurses are loyal to this doctor like the one who rings me up every week to talk about nothing much.  You get no information, you are excluded as a parent and treated like nothing.    I am so unhappy about the situation I want to have her home now but will need to take a solicitor with me because I feel this is the only way to deal with this situation now. 

Tonight I went to my carers group – they had a nice do on  All the time though my thoughts were with Elizabeth.  She is only 25 and her life has been ruined on all these drugs and running with me caused her heart beat to be irregular and a doctor was called and that prompted me to demand to know the  medication because all the time I have been trying to find out what the new drug was and now I know  they have finally got her on Clozapine and that was their intention all along.

Here is the link to look at the research papers:  http://bjp.rcpsych.org/ on June 23 2012 .

Before going in to this ward Elizabeth had signed documents to say she wanted no further experimentation done and especially was against Clozapine.  I just do not know how any of the staff can do their jobs in light of this abuse and plan to go out of my way to hopefully  get recognition of this abuse and support but I am just a mother – it would be great isf someone well known got involved in this and noone seems interested or cares about the plight of the mentally ill and the horror of the abuse going on in these dreadful places by these psychiatrists who refuse to give you any kind of evidence as to proof of diagnosis or they come between you and the person you have cared for.

All I want is to have Elizabeth home now because of this dreadful situation and Professor Robin Murray must do something about this situation.  He is the one who gave her hope and we believed that she would be getting the best care at a leading hospital –  I truly thought this was a wonderful place that could help her but now I know the reality – it is the worst place  or one of the worst places on earth where they do not care about a patient’s wishes or feelings – they just use them to experiment on like human guinea pigs and it is in the court papers that these psychiatrist can within the law do whatever they wish and it is no wonder they can smile –  and when someone dies – these people do not always have the support of their families –  there are hardly any visitors to this dreadful ward and that is what they want.   I have still not had an explanation of why her face was covered in bruises –  the ward manager saw her and could not see 1 bruise but when I went to pick h er up she was covered in them all over her face.  Even if there is an innocent explanation to this – why keep it a secret? 

It is just so bad what is going on and this is just one hospital –  there is terrible things going on all over the country and soon there will be the Olympics.  To think Elizabeth who once was a very good runner could barely summon up the energy to do anything today and felt constantly dizzy.    

I am so disgusted at what this awful hospital is doing to my daughter.

The psychiatrists can smile – it is not the first time I have seen this behaviour because they think they are above the law and can do what they like.   However the more they abuse a patient and take away their rights especially when others object like I do then things can come back – for instance the hospital has a good reputation worldwide but this is silly – ridiculous placing a sanction on someone to visit for 1 – 2 hours and this is continuing.  Depriving the patient of fresh air, depriving the ward of a member of staff.   What is this man afraid of – he seems paranoid himself!   What does he think I as a mother am going to do?  All I want is to take my daughter out shopping like before to the wonderful shopping centre nearby and to a nearby town but what can you do in 1 – 2 hours.    I am hoping to do some running tomorrow so I hope the staff are fit as they will have to run to catch up with us and Elizabeth is a very very good runner and was training for Special Olympics and this helped me get up to standard for a bleep test as they had England Atheletes involved.  In addition to this, Elizabeth also went to a local running team.  She was very very good at this sport.   In addition I used to take Elizabeth out swimming – not once has she been taken to the hospital’s swimming pool.    Anyway I hope it is a good day tomorrow for my planned run around the grounds of the hospital.  I am also going to look for zumba teachers as  I am enjoying these classes and I do not see why they cannot be held outside so that all the patients can join in.   Anyway they have places where they can accommodate this and I intend to look into this very thoroughly.  Noone has got  back to me about my suggestion.  Noone has got  back to me with a definite OK for the  meeting next Friday when of course Rethink the advocates will attend so that was what we agreed and it is down to Rethink – REthink sounded bemused by the whole saga.     They denied this was their decision and I told them how the Consultant Psychiatrist would not allow my daughter to get a word in edgeways.  She is more than capableof saying no to me – why cant they understand this.  They must be petrified or rather he must be!  Loyal members of the team have I suppose to stick by him or else they could lose their jobs.   I am sure the world must  be laughing at this hospital because for one they have no grounds to ban me –  I have offered to give every reference including that from the police.  Secondly, she is not violent or a risk to anyone –   when I asked what the reason was I got no answer and the lead nurse was struggling with her comments.  So I asked for it in writing.  I have an ongoing complaint and have been asked not to send any more emails – how funny – if only I could get some answers to one of my complaints  – that would be nice.  Elizabeth told me of a meeting she had today and was told of a rehab place which is miles and miles from home.  I want her to make a fresh start and thanks to my website this has brought me into contact with so very many people from all over the country and world.   I am shocked at the extent of the abuse going on and believe everyone should speak out.  I have been invited to a convention and am seriously thinking of going as there are good speakers there.  I am so unhappy about Elizabeth being in that place that is like a prison camp and patients do not get enough fresh air and it is disgusting there is nothing to do at weekends for them.   There should be plenty to do and outings and the community hall is empty – What is going on!   Where is everyone at the weekend when they are needed to organise some nice activities for the patients and take them out.  How on earth can you get better like this.   In contrast there are places abroad like in Finland Tornio where they offer unique care and also Earth House where they call patients students.  I like this.  I like the fact the patients are respected and listened to.     I like some of the staff on the ward – they are not all bad –  there are some very good staff like the social worker, one or two nurses – of course there are some that are extremely rude and one complained about my phone calls – I have every right to phone and I in turn complained about the length of time it took to answer my call that day because everyone was in meetings.  This is NOT GOOD ENOUGH.    I am pleased if they move her –  the rest of the family will not be happy if it is that far a distance –  However I would send her to Earth House if only I could – she once wanted to go to the States  I really like the sound of thiat place.  Elizabeth needs to be listened to and it is horrific what is going on here – I am the one who listens to her whereas the staff do NOT otherwise they would not be plying her with drug after drug after drug – she still does not know what tablet she is taking.    Tomorrow evening  I am going to my carers group for a buffet they are organising.  On Sunday, as I have made myself known to local churches in the area and hope to take Elizabeth along to meet everyone.  Maybe these people can visit on the ward and I would be more than happy to pay for someone to take her off this place of horror and into the fresh air.  I would pay someone to do this.    I would even consider having her home because I am so shocked – shocked that this psychiatrist has ignored a leading professor and I want this professor to call on his contacts like he said he had.  There seems to be NO contacts there at this hospital as all they want to do is push drugs and experiment on patients.  This is NOT what my daughter was promised or what should be intended.    Like I say I hope the staff are fit!  I intend to run with Elizabeth all around the grounds as I need to get my standards up if I am to run the bleep test again.  I found it very good running outside and training with the personal trainers at my gym – Elizabeth was a great help and she knows the technique of running.   It will do h er good as well as being couped up on a stuffy ward and not encouraged to do much exercise is a disgrace.
