Hi Susan

I do not best placed to answer about Dr K but have asked the questions and will reply when I have the answers for you.

Our mental health nurses are qualified to undertake capacity assessments.

Informal capacity assessments can be done by anyone, for example if a patent needs help in finding something to wear we would assess what level of support is needed and help, this is a capacity assessment.

Formal Capacity assessment is for things more in-depth such as understanding rights under the section they are held at this point someone who is best placed  can undertake the capacity assessment. In most cases this will be done by mental health professionals from consultant to nurses.

I have received a message from Mr ….. and I will call him back when I have availability which should be this morning.

You have every right to call me based on me being your point of contact.

Elizabeth does not have set times in which she has her phone.

Elizabeth  is offered the phone intermittently thought the day, when she accepts her hour starts, Elizabeth is permitted 2 hours per day.

When Elizabeth sees her phone she will see any missed calls and messages you have sent and she will reply as she wishes.

Kind regards

Hi Susan

I have spoken to the Doctor today and unfortunately he does not have any room in his diary to meet with you tomorrow.

The Doctor and myself will revisit this for you at the end of the week and allocate some time where possible.

I am not authorised to send paperwork you would need to go through the correct channels.

Please find attached the document you would need to fill in and send off to be able to gain access to the information.

I have spoken with the doctors regarding Mabop Celebrations and this will not be permitted on this occasion Elizabeth’s S17 leave will remain the same  which is 2 x 30 minutes ground leave escorted by 2 members of staff.

Kind regards

Hi Susan

I do hope it will be a nice day for you, as today is.

Scan update is Elizabeth is still refusing to go, and I will need to ask about the endocrinology for you.

As far as I am aware other family members are aware we are monitoring phone use for a period of time.

Phone calls as well as phone use will be monitored for the agreed period of time.  

Our new RC  at ash villa is still Dr K but may change in the near future, I will advise when this happens.

This was done at Cambian.  Her phone taken away, kept charging in the office continuously, given a time slot for when I was allowed to phone.  The outcome was the phone had to be handed back immediately because it was found that legally Cambian were in breach of human rights and the law as are Ash Villa. The phone is Elizabeth’s phone and the contract is paid for by the family and therefore Ash Villa and the MDT are in breach of human rights law and I can forward you the letter from previous solicitors in this respect as it went straight to the CEO for court purposes.

Thanks for confirming that Dr K is still the RC with overall responsibility for everything that goes on under Ash Villa.

Elizabeth would not be refusing appointments for the scan if her family were taking her and so I would like some Section 17 leave to take my daughter for this essential appointment. 

Endocrinology is also an essential appointment and referral to a hormone clinic was recommended at a previous tribunal.   We want to know what the abnormal findings on the scan were so therefore when is the next MRI appointment in an open scanner which we dont mind paying the difference for so that we can be present.

Also I would like to request S17 to take Elizabeth to the Mabop celebrations on 19th June.  Can this be allowed?

Please forward a copy of the capacity assessment done by GJ that prompted you to say Elizabeth had no capacity as well as a copy of the minutes of the manager’s hearing that I was invited to by way of text message from Elizabeth and that I had been requesting for months on end as my right as the NR but then now it would appear that everything has changed in this respect.

Thank you

Regards

Good morning Susan

It has been recently discussed in Elizabeth’s MDT That phone access be monitored for a period of time.

It has been reported that the phone works fine and Elizabeth has not mentioned it needs to be repaired.    There is a cracked screen which Elizabeth agreed for me to get repaired but because I used to visit on a Sunday no shops were open.

Elizabeth has her phone twice a day 1 hour in a morning and 1 hour in the evening, at these times Elizabeth is able to call and text who she wishes. Elizabeth is just lying in bed in the mornings and in fact according to one nurse spends much of her time in her room isolated from everyone and refuses to join in.

The phone will not be permitted to leave the ward however her clothing will be ready for you to collect.  The phone belongs to Elizabeth so what rights under the law do they have to justify taking a phone away – her one contact with the outside world outside of that dreadful prison. Plus we pay for a contract on that phone so there is the human rights of her family who are accused (especially me) of phoning every day and bothering staff by zoe blake in an excessive manner.  This is an abuse of our human rights – the family and degrading treatment of the vulnerable patient.

I will speak to the RC and see if he has any room to see you tomorrow at 3pm however I cant commit to this as yet, I will feed back to you as soon as I can on this.

I will book your visit in for 15.00pm Wednesday.

Kind regards

Subject: RE: Single Point of Access

Good morning Susan

I hope your feeling better.

I do not have the authority to advise anyone not to contact you and that includes the MHA office, however with that said, Due to the level of emails and calls staff members are receiving from you on a daily basis it was agreed that a single point of access would be the best way forwards for yourself and staff. (but what now???? we the family have no set times when we are allowed to phone and have no choice but to phone the office. Have requested copy of phone log as no way do I phone every day as you suggest)

This has been in place for some time now and will continue to be in place while Elizabeth is with us at ash Villa.

There is no *rule* as such more an understanding that anything you need Drop me an email or call and I will do what I can to gain the answers for you, likewise staff contact me to feed back anything to yourself.

This allows the nursing team to concentrate on the service users and allows you someone to speak with. But not now we have no access to Elizabeth as she is unlawfully being deprived of her liberty whilst held under S3 of the MHA for the past nine months. Now there are no set times when she has her phone that we pay for by contract and therefore we have no choice but to phone the ward only to be told “if she wants to speak to you she can ask for her phone back”. How very wrong you all are the MDT and RC Dr K of (……………….which Trust registered to??????) when noone has heard of him at LPFT??????? This all needs confirmation as to why not registered with the Trust same as previous medical director just resigned.

Elizabeth has an excess of clothes that are stored for her, These clothes are  to small for Lynsey, when you next Visit could you kindly collect them for Elizabeth. Couldn’t as nothing had been sorted out but was told she was short of summer clothes so bought her some more.

Hi Susan

Please see meeting notes from todays meeting.

  • S17 leave has not changed and remains at 2 x 30 minutes ground leave escorted by 2 members of staff.
  • Risk was explained regarding why Elizabeth is escorted by 2 x members of staff.
  • Nursing advised that Elizabeth does see her advocate on a one to one basis however Elizabeth has refused from time to time.
  • Dr S advised the consultant would be available next week to be involved in the meetings. Why wasn’t he then?????
  • We discussed Takeaways and how these are becoming more frequent. And we discussed endocrine disorder and PCOS source of weight gain and the increased dosage of clopixol depot Elizabeth told the family about as discussed at the Manager’s Hearing I was not included
  • That you would like some inclusion. I have a right as both NR and POA to be informed of certain decisions and reasons why????
  • You was offered invitations to Carers support groups and you refused these.
  • You would like to continue with the weekly meeting with a consultant.
  • You wish to visit on a Saturday @14.00. And not a Junior Dr or any other staff acting as shields/protectors so as to avoid important issues such as S17 leave and as for the Carers Network – this is OK provided you do not post anything negative and lo and behold you get a ticking off in front of everyone lol!

I will look at booking next weeks appointment and forwards to you in due course.

Kind regards

There is no tangible reason why Elizabeth cannot be given s.17 leave and the refusal to allow her some respite form permanent confinement is positively detrimental to her mental health.

In a nutshell they are institutionalising her by stealth.  This is a human rights issue and not one for half-assed tribunals.  I am quite prepared to help you put together a case if Elizabeth agrees.  The matter needs taking to the High Court on the grounds they are acting ultra vires. It costs £3800 pw for Ash Villa and £140000 has so far been spent roughly since September 2021 and she is declining and beginning to self harm because of their abuse.

This circumvents the institutional bias of the tribunals and involved decisions based on well establish law rather than the convenience of the staff at Ash Villa.  It is utterly absurd that she has not had some home leave in eight months. Even a restricted patient would have been allowed some leave.

 I as NR have been prevented from having a Manager’s Hearing or any contact with the MHA Office who no doubt have been instructed not to respond to be at all.

Good morning Susan

I hope your well.

As advised on many occasions I am your single point of access, others will not reply but I will seek to gain the relevant answers and feed them back to you.

You will not be sent the link to the managers meeting today, Elizabeth has not given verbal consent to any member of staff although we have tried to gain this on many occasions. You know very well that I had written consent as I told you so and could prove it.

Elizabeth has not been deemed to have Capacity to consent to your request on this occasion. Because of Capacity Assessment done by a nurse namely G J. Well that is interesting as I have POA in that case.

Kind regards

Now a capacity assessment has been carried out on my daughter and she was not informed about this.  As you can see from above person who is supposed to be my Carer’s Champion says Elizabeth has no capacity when I have a text message and even knew the exact time of this.

Meanwhile the MHA Office Manager S J. and staff continue to ignore me as though I do not exist.

This is not right at all unless Elizabeth been found to have no capacity but surely as the Nearest Relative you should be entitled to be informed of this.   The matter should therefore go to the CoP.

They have been trying to take away from me/her father the POA for Health and Welfare and we are under investigation right now by Anita Heera of the Public Guardian Office on account that we stopped or tried to stop the depot of clopixol when we actually tried to get this up and running but failed because no one helped.  For nine months my daughter has been held a prisoner.  Her physical health is declining and she has missed two physical health appointments and spends most of her time lying in bed trying to keep warm.

I have asked ZB if/why she is standing in the way of my contact with the MHA Office as NR as I wanted a Manager’s Hearing.   They clearly did not want me to attend the manager’s hearing and I am wondering if this could be the reason that the depot has been raised to max level decided by the Manager’s Hearing – putting my daughter’s life at further risk.   An expert of the drugs we know has recognised correctly that Elizabeth has an endocrinal disorder and is against the increase in drugs and he is an expert on the drugs and knows also that she is a poor/non metaboliser. Previous Endocrine tests done confirm and yet they negligently ignore and raise drugs to max level. I have got the care plan Elizabeth shared stating Ambulance/Fire involved – high risk of mortality.   Once again I am asking you to (CQC) intervene as my daughter is at risk of dying.

How long is the “agreed” period agreed amongst MDT and RC for then?

As regards the Policy Documents, I already checked to see if DoLs was in place and was firmly told no, so you can be sure I am going to check the legality of all of this and all the breaches in Lincolnshire Partnership Trust’s Policy.   Elizabeth should be entitled to compensation for unlawful Deprival of Liberty per month of up to £5000.

It is not a matter of you or others deciding to take a vulnerable person’s phone away from them deciding who attends a manager’s hearing when Elizabeth invited me and I can prove it – what on earth is going on under Ash Villa?   

Elizabeth has told me all the information I needed to know plus shared her care plan with her family which she is quite entitled to do and we have copies of that and it would most certainly appear that “professionals” are now punishing her by depriving contact with her family who pay for a phone contract.   This is unlawful what you are doing.

Is that nurse who carried out the capacity assessment a trained “best interests assessor”?  If not she has no ‘capacity’ or authority to decide capacity of others.  Capacity is a matter for the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and its the duty of the assessor to presume capacity in just about all patients.  It would be a very difficult to suggest that someone did not have capacity to use a mobile phone and it is a fundamental breach of Art. 8 ECHR to deny family contact.  There seems no reason why private phone calls could be denied and you have a right to be informed of the details of any such decision should it occur.    

Deprivation of liberty is a high court matter as are ECHR breaches.  It is very easy to bring a human rights action as litigant in person and many people do so because legal aid is exceptionally difficult to get in these cases unless there is a public policy issue.  

And there is most certainly a public policy issue with Lincolnshire Partnership Trust as I have been reading the Policy documents.

I am also concerned for my daughter’s wellbeing as she looked distressed and had a bright red mark on her face and is resorting to self-harm again because of the stress of being held an absolute prisoner under Ash Villa with no end in sight and deprived of basic human rights.     I have today 10.06.2022 reported to Adults Safeguarding further concerns as they are investigating my daughter’s case right now upon my advice.
