Here is the message from my daughter which I have by text sent to me on Monday 3rd December. This message puts in dispute that Elizabeth only wants supervised phone calls when in fact she has been contacting me unknown to the team. Elizabeth also wrote that she would ask the Manager at Cambian to see if she could see me at Xmas. I then got a reply from Cambian – an email saying that they understood that the time available and agreed by the TEAM that I could ring my daughter ie 6.00 pm on a Monday could be re-arranged to a more suitable supervised slot once a week. I have not as yet responded. I am too upset to respond to a team who have treated me like a criminal from the very beginning. A team who do not care at all about other people’s feelings, a team who have gone out of their way to manipulate my daughter and got rid of her existing solicitors. I have not even the strength right now to complain about them but how on earth did they ever win the title of Best Care Provider in the Private Sector with the likes of Roger Black at their award winning do.
The psychiarist Dr A W clearly did not like me from the word go and even referred to my past behaviour – God knows what kind of things have been written behind my back by the Bethlem and team. I have never even met this psychiatrist and now this psychiatrist has gone off on leave for maternity but she has clearly gone out of her way to try and interfere with my daughter’s choice in terms of family arrangements and has ruined Xmas for the family especially myself and my younger daughter and I will never never forget what this psychiatrist has done. I know for a fact that the rest of the team go by what the so called professional doctor has to say and she was very pro the Maudsley and called it a world-wide leading renowned hospital. It was far from this – it was a research hospital where in fact they experiment on the weakest and most vulnerable people making huge money out of the funding provided by major drugs companies – whilst there could be an innocent explanation, bearing in mind the cruel laws of this country that allow such abuse to go on in the name of profit for these major drugs companies who instead of paying for people to take part in their clinical trials do so at their hearts content with the likes of people like my daughter. Once drugged up and messed about with high dosages of drugs they are like “putty in their hands” and Dr James MacCabe and Prof Taylor have a lot of answer for and so does the Consultant Psychiatrist who she was under. The pharmacist sat there smugly smiling throughout meetings until I pulled her up. I was told to sit back, relax and leave everything to the professionals but what did they do- three more drugs were introduced and one given off label for diabetes Type II. It would seem if you dare to speak out against their shocking so called “care” you get treated as a criminal and human rights go out the window. It is a cruel world and we are supposed to live in a civilised country in the UK but I have not got a good word to say about the UK and its care for the mentally ill. There is much abuse going on and nothing is done. Here is an example of what is being done by the CQC in their letter to me of the 05th December.
The letter has the reference 4/4/12/54. The signature is totally illegible. All it says is Information & Advice Officer with a scrawl of a signature. This is a Government funded organisation the CQC that are supposed to investigate complaints and it would appear have done nothing. I am waiting to hear from them in regard to my complaint on why my daughter’s face was covered in bruises. For all I know she could have been beaten up by members of staff. Who knows what goes on behind closed doors. Maybe she refused to take her drugs and that is what they did to her. I have no proof at the end of the day. The reason my daughter’s face was covered in bruises could be one of many. Perhaps she upset another patient – there could be an innocent explanation but it certainly looks suspicious especially when the ward manager had to ask me when this occured and I was able to tell her on the exact date this happened because keeping a record of this through my blog is very beneficial. I was quite frankly shocked at the extent of the bruising. Another reason is perhaps my daughter did that to herself! One thing is for sure having experienced the extremel cruelty of the staff of the Fitzmary II Ward who have a blog by a former patient dedicated to them – anything is possible. Whilst visiting the ward the patients told me that they were not happy – they said things like their human rights were being abused. What have the CQC done about this? The CQC are an organisation who are not interested if you turn to them and tell them your daughter or son is being abused. They are not interested in individual cases at all but I pointed out to them that there were many on the ward complaining of their rights. In fact I know someone in hospital at the moment complaining of their rights but the CQC could not care less and send out a letter with a scrawl of a signature you cannot read to cover their backs and pass the buck to organisations who are already inundated with complaints such as the PHSO who have shut down my case on several occasions. The letter states as follows:
“I have received a copy of the letter summarising the outcome of the investigation into your complain, you can contact the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman Office (PHSO) within the next 12 months saying why you are not satisfied. The Ombudsman can investigate complaints that the NHS (or NHS funded care) in England have failed to act properly or fairly or provided a poor service.
The Mental Health Act also grants the Care Quality Commission (CQC to consider an investigation.
The PHSO is the final abiter in any complaint matter and therefore the CQC cannot consider any request for investigation once the Ombudsman has either completed or declined an investigation into your complaints.
Both the CQC and PHSO have failed miserably to do anything for my daughter. It is a complete and utter waste of time going to either of them and in my opinion they should both be shut down. It is a waste of taxpayer’s money to fund organisations that allow abuse to continue under mental health care and get away with earning big salaries for doing nothing at all.
The only way you can get someone to listen to you is if you are prepared to pay thousands to take matters to court. To think taxpayer’s money is being wasted in such a big way on the likes of these organisations is horrendous and then on one occasion they came back to me that the care was “satisfactory” – this was an occasion where two firms of solicitors had outrightly said they were negligent at Enfield and yet the PHSO came back with the words “satisfactory”. This was when my daughter went missing – I have all the files in this case and this points to negligence yet still they try and defend the care by saying the words “satisfactory” – it is only when a programme like Panorama gets hold of a particulare case of abuse that they do their job from what I see.
It was truly shocking what happened to my daughter at that time and I was told by a nurse “no harm done” but I believe the opposite.I was ready to take them to court and this has been one of many shocking incidents that have happened to her over the past years leading to her decline some of which occurred on the wards themselves.
Now of course the team are desperate to get rid of me in any way they can because I have been outspoken and for no other reason. They simply have no other grounds and I know will go out of their way to try and reason as to why it is not beneficial for my daughter to see me but in fact they are protecting their own backs. I realise that they may try all sorts of tricks such as say that I myself am mentally unstable myself and that it is being done for my daughter’s safety – How can this be? I work full time – I was up until recently training to be a police officer – I most certainly am not mentally unstable but I certainly would question the stability of some of the psychiatrists involved – I question how they are desperately trying to defend their jobs in light of the increasing amount of professionals who are willing to honestly speak out and state that the drugs are not the answer and that cases should be looked upon individually In addition they cannot accuse me of trying to take her off the chemicals as I am not a doctor and she would need professional help in order to do this however it is not impossible and can be done in the right environment but in this uncaring country there is nothing and patients end up feeling in a hopeless situation and no longer caring what happens to them. If my daughter had had the drug free period of assessment I would have been ready to accept the diagnosis however I know for a fact you cannot take someone off 150mg off Seroquel in just 2 weeks and not expect some kind of adverse reaction and then of course that is how they justifiy the sanctions they impose and these very sanctions are preventing me from seeing my daughter at Xmas. I have asked time and time again for their reasons but they say nothing.
You do not know how bitter I feel about this. I am happy to go out of my way now to try and get the much needed funding to see groups like Soteria set up that give kinder care and consideration to the mentally ill. There is not one single place int the UK set up and that is apalling. In America there are centres such as Earth House – why not here? Why could not one place be set up as a pilot scheme to see how it works. It certainly works in Finland in a place called Tornio where I desperately tried to contact people to see if there was any way I could send my daughter over there to have decent care.
As I have said before I am trying to raise the money. I have approached two London football clubs so far- Chelsea and Arsenal. Hope to contact West Ham and Spurs to to see if I can get players’ signatures on tee-shirts which I am prepared to pay for to auction on Ebay in one big auction to see if I can raise the money for one if not all of three centres called Soteria, Chy Sawel and Root and Branch Project to be set up to provide humane care for my daughter and many people like her trapped in a never ending prison environment (some of whom have no voice and no family to speak up for them) they never get better because the only cure is drug pushing and that does not cure someone who for instance is a rape or abuse victim and only provides profit for the pharmaceuticals who in my opinion should be doing something to help the many “treatment resistant” patients by getting them reduced gradually and off these harmful drugs. The fact they label someone as being treatment resistant says it all – it means they have failed – failed to treat someone effectively, failed to address the underlying reasons for the decline in their mental health and have done so by the easy route by pushing drugs and nothng else which is clearly not the answer. It is also failure that a so called civilised country such as the UK do nothing to stop the abuse going on right now and see the only cure as drugs which of course bring huge profits to the pharmaceutical industry which in turn have close association with the Government. With all the money the Government waste why could they not at least try such a scheme based on the care available in Finland.
I wish I did not live in this cruel country. I so much want to leave and take Elizabeth with me to anywhere in the world where she can have the right kind of care. A care that is humane and kind and addressed individual needs.
CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE AS THEY ARE KILLING MY DAUGHTER?
