The Good News:
Elizabeth has won bidding for a one bed flat. We went to look at it on Friday following the CPA and Elizabeth really liked it. It is on third floor level and has beautiful views from the balcony. What a difference this will make to Elizabeth as opposed to all the shared accommodation which has proved to be no good.
Past Accommodation Provision Under Enfield.
2012 Moti Villa – The Ridgeway Enfield EN2. MH scheme studio flat GF. Terribly abused captured on CCTV whilst staff slept. 24 hr “support” failed to protect Elizabeth who was on 800mg Quetiapine at the time.
2014 Phoenix House Stepping Stones Northampton. Care home rated “Good” by CQC. According to files Elizabeth went without food at weekend, as she could not manage money. They refused to give Clozapine when Elizabeth did not wish to return resulting in safeguarding and led to Ct of Protection DoLs case and the Deprival of Medication – community care where Enfield Community Rehab tried to deprive liberty but Ct of Protection allowed Elizabeth back home in accordance with her wishes.
Mays Cottage – Inclusion Housing / care provided by Craegmoore (Part of the Priory Group). Low level support – no staff throughout the night. Support workers upstairs in office and Elizabeth had small room on GF that had broken lock and was told to sleep on settee and wait for staff to arrive in the morning. House residents mainly men and Cannabis offered to Elizabeth.
Reservoir House – Oakwood – Shared house – support workers meant to study on line. Nice house, nice area, nice garden – double room. Essential services not up and running following hospital discharge. Bed bugs, Elizabeth falsely blamed for bringing them in and after 5 fumigations problems still persisted. Elizabeth sleeping on floor and settee and covered in bite marks.
Solway Road N22 – temporary scheme meant for short term stay provided since December 2018. Shared house in quiet residential road. Support workers slept overnight downstairs – Small attic room. No dining room/no kitchen – kitchen partly in staff bedroom/office. Elizabeth fair distance from home – access to GP difficult/virtually impossible.
During the time spent at Solway Road I became concerned that if this were to continue long term Elizabeth would go downhill as she appeared to be deteriorating in this environment. Cooking preparing meals very difficult. No table to sit and eat meals.
Elizabeth’s assessment for a one bedroom flat was way back in 2018 but nothing appeared to be progressing. So in the end I got involved in the bidding in desperation at seeing her going downhill.
CTO Revoked – Elizabeth held on Section 3 MHA
The above is the current position. Elizabeth is held prisoner on Chase Farm Suffolk Ward not being allowed any leave even escorted. I telephoned Suffolk Ward late on Friday to enquire whether Elizabeth could come out with me but a nurse who refused to give her name said that “no leave was granted” and therefore Elizabeth could not come out even escorted. I immediately wrote to Jinjer Kandola – Chief Executive Officer of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey MH Trust. Not once has Ms Kandola replied to any of my emails and I copied in the Health and Social Care Commission, CQC, PALS, amongst others. I believe that once again there is violation of human rights on Suffolk Ward, Chase Farm Hospital Enfield where so many detrimental things have happened to Elizabeth.
Forcibly injected with such force her slippers broke;
Threatened with homelessness by former RC Dr KC if she did not choose her father as Next of Kin;
Detained illegally under the MHA for which an apology was given;
Beaten up around the head so badly she had to be transferred to Trent Ward Edgware.
Not allowed contact off the ward previously under S17 leave when presenting no risk.
Suffolk Ward it would appear is a law unto themselves.
Recently Elizabeth has been given two Lorazepam injections which has led to physical health problems, severe discomfort and numbness in her hands and has added to the PTSD she already suffers from.
Suffolk Ward is an example of the brutal treatment under Public Sector Care in the UK
So far, programmes like Panorama have featured private institutions but from Suffolk Ward – whilst under care by RC Dr Helen Moorey, Elizabeth was previously sent for rapid tranquilisation at huge public expense to Huntercombe Roehampton who disagreed with the mental health diagnosis of “Paranoid Schizophrenia” stating high spectrum Aspergers which is mentioned by other doctors too throughout the file. At Huntercombe Elizabeth was given enormous quantities of drugs previously found to be allergic to to the point she could barely see or stand. She looked totally traumatised at this dreadful hospital where they could not even get her date of birth correct in the file records (subject of ICO investigation) however the treating doctors disagreed with the diagnosis that Suffolk Ward stick to as does every single person in the family disagree.
NORTH MID HOSPITAL HORIZON SUITE
Elizabeth called an ambulance as she was suffering from physical chronic pain no doubt as a result of the forced injections from Suffolk Ward which indicated nerve damage when Elizabeth could barely walk as her big toe hurt and her back and stomach hurt also. See above link regarding our treatment from this General Hospital A&E.
Elizabeth was not allowed to join myself and close family friend for a meal out and had only had just 1 sandwich all day, kept prisoner whilst staff looked for a bed which took well over 12 hrs.
When a CTO has been revoked – the detention reverts to a Section 3 and loss of S17 leave in Elizabeth’s case. Elizabeth is now held prisoner on Suffolk Ward, not allowed out even escorted but was allowed some leave on Friday in order to view the new flat which has been offered to her.
Friday 6th June – CPA Meeting.
I was invited to attend the meeting by Elizabeth in the morning and had prior arranged for Elizabeth to be allowed out to view the new flat in the afternoon but attempt was made to stop me from going into the CPA meeting which I as Nearest Relative had to point out I had proof by way of text message this is what Elizabeth wanted.
At the CPA meeting was Dr Jeremy Greening, Dr Helen Moorey, staff nurse Cecile Shalo and a student. Elizabeth’s S17 leave has been cut because Elizabeth did not go back to the Hospital for a meeting due to her feeling unwell and she was apparently in bed complaining of terrible pain to her big toe (sign of nerve damage). Elizabeth was also complaining of back pain and blurred vision/ temporary blindness and headaches. I had offered to take Elizabeth to the hospital previously for the discharge meeting as I had a day off but that day off was to go and help Elizabeth with the bidding process as nothing was moving forward and she was just stuck in temp accommodation. Elizabeth had called an ambulance as she was in so much physical pain and she was being prescribed a drug called Risperidone for well over the period of time Manufacturers recommend, despite the fact previously found to be allergic to this drug for which the team are fully aware. I am also aware Elizabeth has been offered mood stabilisers recently so I immediately got in touch with a leading Professor about this, an expert on drug adverse reactions and I was told mood stabilisers were a “dangerous fashion” in Psychiatry. Take Sodium Valporate – this is currently going through Class Action through Leigh Day and Co Solicitors. Likewise other firms of solicitors are now getting involved in similar cases against the drug companies just like in the US. It seems there are firms of solicitors in the UK interested in psychiatric injury and negligence in prescribing as I have discovered. PTSD is most certainly an injury that most Psychiatrists like to dismiss as irrelevant and drugs are ineffective for PTSD. I have been warned about Mirtazepam and Carbamazepine that these drugs can actually cause psychosis.
Here is what Drs don’t inform the patient of:
Mineral Mood Stabilizers
Lithium is commonly used to treat depression and mania in bipolar disorder. It was approved by the FDA in 1970 and is still used in a number of cases today. It can be prescribed alone or along with other medications that treat bipolar disorder. Commercial brand names for lithium medicines include Eskalith, Lithobid and Lithonate.
Lithium is highly effective when used to stabilize mood, but it can cause side-effects. These include:
- Weight gain
High levels of lithium in the blood can be dangerous, so doctors will routinely monitor your health via blood tests if you take lithium medications.
Anticonvulsant Mood Stabilizers
Anticonvulsants are commonly prescribed to patients with epilepsy, but they are also highly effective at reducing the severity and frequency of bipolar episodes. There is a long list of mood stabilizers in this category, but commonly prescribed medicines include:
IF The following anticonvulsants are sometimes used “off-label,” meaning they are not officially approved for the treatment of bipolar disorder, but the FDA approves them for other purposes. Doctors can prescribe off-label medications for the benefit of a patient’s care. BUT IF SOMETHING IS NOT APPROVED THEN IT IS NOT OFFICIALLY RECOMMENDED THEREFORE ANY DOCTOR PRESCRIBING OFF LABEL IS AT RISK OF NEGLIGENCE AND LEGAL ACTION IN THE EVENT OF HARM BEING CAUSED.
- Oxcarbazepine (Oxtellar, Trileptal)
- Gabapentin (Horizant, Neurontin)
- Topiramate (Qudexy, Topamax, Trokendi)
Common side-effects of anticonvulsants are similar to those of lithium, but they may also include headaches, sexual problems, abdominal pain, fever, confusion, blurred vision and abnormal bruising and bleeding.
Antipsychotic Mood Stabilizers
Antipsychotics are another medication type on the mood stabilizers list. In some cases, they are prescribed alone, but they may also be taken with other mood stabilizing drugs. Medications in this category that are approved for the treatment of bipolar disorder include
Antipsychotic medications can cause side-effects. These may include:
- Blurred vision
- Weight gain
- Rapid heartbeat
- Sensitivity to sunlight
All side-effects should be reported to your doctor. If you experience swelling of the hands or face, difficulty breathing, body rash or irregular heart rhythms, you should seek medical assistance immediately. Some drugs on the mood stabilizers medication list can also cause adverse mood symptoms, such as suicidal thoughts and behaviour, hallucinations and problems with memory. If any of these occur, it’s important to seek immediate medical advice. Yes this applies to Elizabeth but no one takes any notice under ENFIELD.
Which Drug on the Mood Stabilizers Medication List Should I Choose?
If you are diagnosed with bipolar disorder, your doctor will examine your symptoms, medical history, allergies, intolerances and other general health factors to determine which course of treatment is right for you. You may need to try different medications from the mood stabilizers list to determine which works best. Elizabeth is not diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder yet has been offered mood stabilisers.
During this time, it’s important to meet with your doctor regularly to report any side-effects and see how well your treatment is working. Your doctor can then make periodic adjustments to your medication to keep your side-effects and symptoms under careful management.
Elizabeth does not have Bipolar or Schizophrenia. Elizabeth has been prescribed all of the drugs highlighted in bold and has suffered all of the symptoms above but when seeking medical attention for her physical health she has been treated like a criminal and none of this is taken into consideration by Psychiatrists in the local area of ENFIELD. I will give you an example of how certain Doctors dismiss physical health in favour of continuing with the “treatment of drugging” when they are supposed to do NO HARM and deny proper assessments. Above it states that patients need to try different medication to established which works best but in Elizabeth’s case none of them work and they have been given at maximum levels causing harm and injury for which there is no accountability. Doctors are supposed to DO NO HARM. That is not the case under Psychiatry.

DR HELEN MOOREY’S REPORT
Dr Helen Moorey (Responsible Clinician) Suffolk Ward report dated 31 May 2019 contains disturbing statements, which I will summarise, from which you can draw your own conclusions:
Sources of information listed are medical records, team discussions and patient interviews.
The report is worded in the most negative terms in respect of Elizabeth and her behaviour but I will leave it up to the reader to draw their own conclusions as to why reports are written in such a way and also why a patient goes downhill to such an extent thanks to the brutal treatment they get on wards such as SUFFOLK. We feel that because Elizabeth absconded she is now being punished yet Elizabeth has declined and suffered injury as a result of her treatment under ENFIELD.
I must correct the following lies “…………. appeared perplexed and said she believed Police were trying to frame her and that her mother was injecting her friend with Cocaine” A false misleading statement completely taken out of context either by Dr Moorey or whoever from the treating team?
Risperidone is mentioned to try to justify such treatment. when Elizabeth started Risperidone on the ward she became “much calmer and her behaviour more manageable, no longer expressing paranoid thoughts and thinking more logical”
Contradictory remarks that dismiss other professional opinions and that of her family who witnessed agitation, distress, confusion in fact all of the symptoms below whilst ON THE DRUG.
- Blurred vision
- Weight gain
- Rapid heartbeat
- Sensitivity to sunlight
- thought impairment
- chronic pain
Risperidone, sold under the brand name Risperdal among others, is an antipsychotic. It is used to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability associated with autism. It is taken either by mouth or by injection into a muscle. The injectable version is long-acting and lasts for about two weeks. Common side effects include movement problems, sleepiness, dizziness, trouble seeing, constipation, and increased weight. Serious side effects may include the potentially permanent movement disorder tardive dyskinesia, as well as neuroleptic malignant syndrome, an increased risk of suicide, and high blood sugar levels. In older people with psychosis as a result of dementia, it may increase the risk of dying. It is unclear if it is safe for use in pregnancy. Risperidone is an atypical antipsychotic. Its mechanism of action is not entirely clear, but is believed to be related to its action as a dopamine antagonist and serotonin antagonist.
Study of risperidone began in the late 1980s and it was approved for sale in the United States in 1993. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system. It is available as a generic medication. The wholesale price in the developing world is between $US 0.01 and $US 0.60 per day as of 2014. The cost for a typical month of medication in the United States is between $US 100-200 as of 2015. In 2016, it was the 159th most prescribed medication in the United States, with nearly 4 million prescriptions.[8
I as mother and Nearest Relative and next of Kin am accused of influencing Elizabeth’s decision not to return to the ward but Elizabeth was unwell and in bed and as I had a day off I contacted her to say I was present and could she come to the meeting on the ward but apparently Elizabeth was in bed, undressed and suffering from chronic pain. What a pack of lies!
On 29th May Elizabeth presented to A&E about concerns re her eyesight and this is not the first time I have heard that. Yes Blurred vision is mentioned as a side effect and also sensitivity to sunlight and headaches so Elizabeth it would appear had reasonable concerns related to the side effects of this powerful drug.
“Since returning to the ward she appears perplexed and preoccupied with physical issues” – well she is suffering from withdrawal effects because Elizabeth has been ignored by Drs when she talks of chronic pain and side effects on the drugs. They do not seem to care less despite the fact it clearly states that they should take notice of serious side effects but it is much easier to ignore.
Elizabeth has been in temporary accommodation she has not been entirely happy with amongst others in confined space with no lounge or proper kitchen facility. This is hardly the right environment to get well and she had made a new friend. Neither were happy with their accommodation and Elizabeth had chosen not to go back or rather was too late to go back because the door was locked at 10.00 pm. She is made out to be confused and that she did not understand the buses – Elizabeth and friend were not returning to their scheme but sleeping rough.
“Since her return to the ward ………….has refused to accept any medication.”
Well it is about time it is recognised that in Elizabeth’s case medication is clearly not the answer and part of the main problem. How on earth can you “cure” someone with more and more experimental drugs (most of which have already been tried and tested to no avail) on someone who has been so badly abused at Moti Villa for instance. This is clearly not the right approach and can have far reaching consequences of brain injury which has been noted in Elizabeth. It takes her so long to respond to questions and you can see she is struggling to think and communicate unlike before.
Tardive Dyskinesia is a serious irreversible condition which the drug Risperidone is associated with.
There has been aggression and confusion WHILST ON vast quantities of concomitantly prescribed drug cocktails which should never ever be prescribed for so very long. This is against guidelines and drugs have been given off label by Doctors knowing full well they are doing wrong yet they are totally unaccountable for the harm they cause to patients like Elizabeth.
Once again, Past History is recorded incorrectly and full of errors. It states early traits of borderline personality disorder since age 16. Instability of mood and poor impulse control. Not true! Elizabeth was immaculately behaved at age 16 but was having some problems at school with certain subjects and found it difficult to ask for help so I provided private lessons. Elizabeth was unhappy at secondary school when her close friend moved to another area.
MRI scan showed benign tumour at the apex of left petrous temporal lobe. It is extremely negligent of ENFIELD MENTAL HEALTH PSYCHIATRISTS AND NURSING PERSONNEL to dismiss this as nothing when as stated in file records this needs to be regularly assessed through MRI Scans but this is not being done. “Lets rule out anything organic” is the response from ENFIELD MENTAL HEALTH.This is why I have turned to brain injury specialists/charities as I feel that Elizabeth is being totally neglected and is not receiving proper assessments on physical health. They are taking a keen interest as it seems now to be recognised that injury can be caused by faulty prescribing.
It is referred to in the report an admission to A&E with disturbed behaviour but completely wrongly recorded that the admission was to Chase Farm when in fact it was to Edgware Hospital where a Doctor had a completely different opinion on diagnosis however it is very much debateable that the real truth of the matter is this is NOT mental illness but “drug induced psychosis” when Elizabeth took herself off Prozac prescribed by her GP at 30mg a day. This was the first time we saw aggression – the behaviour that is mentioned throughout reports, so in actual fact the damage had been done going way back to circa 2008, when Elizabeth was prescribed Prozac and took herself off “cold turkey” due to the most terrible side effects. This led to ward admission, labelling and experimentation with vast quantities of dangerous psychiatric drugs prescribed on a trial and error basis.
I do not like the comments around frequency of admissions whilst at Moti Villa Scheme.
The true facts are that Elizabeth was forced to remain living at this scheme with no alternative provided and to have to live on ground floor level next to the neighbour who was bringing in all his friends to the scheme who abused Elizabeth in the early hours of the morning whilst staff slept, as captured on CCTV that duly went missing – Police could not find the CCTV. Elizabeth lost all her valuable possessions. Not once has there been an apology and Elizabeth was under ENFIELD COMMUNITY REHAB TEAM at the time. There was a 14 year old drug dealer on the premises who offered Elizabeth drugs. She was taking 800mg of Quetiapine at the time and could barely function. The OT (Occupational Therapist) KL was more concerned for the 14 year old streetwise drug dealer than Elizabeth judging by her comments warning Elizabeth that it was against the law to have a relationship with a 14 year old drug dealer allowed to visit the premises of MOTI VILLA, THE RIDGEWAY ENFIELD EN2. It is also suggested that Elizabeth’s disturbed behaviour by AHMP DM was as a result of wishing to escape her mother. NO IN FACT ELIZABETH WAS TERRIFIED TO GO BACK TO THE SCHEME AND WAS DOING EVERYTHING TO AVOID THIS AND FELT SAFER IN HOSPITAL – HOW VERY SAD! HER BEHAVIOUR WAS TOO UNSTABLE FOR THE FAMILY TO HAVE HER BACK HOME AND THAT WAS ON 800 mg of QUETIAPINE.
Interestingly slight irregular EEG background noted but this did not stop Elizabeth from being sent to the shocking Royal Bethlem Hospital for the sole purposes of prescribing Clozapine. I’ve found all the file notes on this – it is horrifying and so many disturbing things at this Institution – no wonder it was shrouded in secrecy and Elizabeth was covered in bruises which they deny yet I have it all in the file records Royal Bethlem FM2 Ward. This is where Elizabeth was referred by Professor Robin Murray for a drug free period of assessment but this was not done properly and the intention was for Clozapine to be introduced as Elizabeth was showing signs of severe adverse reaction to Quetiapine at 800mg.
“On 27 March 2012 she was admitted to National Psychosis Unit, Royal Bethlem Hospital Beckenham FM2 Ward where a formal diagnosis of schizophrenia was made. No! The diagnosis was Treatment Resistant which means poor/non metaboliser which I proved by way of P450 liver enzyme tests.
Elizabeth and I would like to thank members of SPEAK OUT AGAINST PSYCHIATRY for their support in a demonstration staged outside this institution where Elizabeth developed tachycardia on titration of Clozapine and where Elizabeth was covered in bruises as a result of restraint. Finally the truth is coming out – it is no use them stating that they saw no bruises because Nurse AC commented “Im happy with that”. Well now we all know what happened as I can read all about it and the other most disturbing things at this hospital regarding vital equipment not working etc etc. in the extensive file records I have acquired.
From NPU Elizabeth was sent to Cambian St Teilo House where the drugging regime continued and Clozapine increased by Dr Alyson Witts who banned Elizabeth from coming home at Xmas stating she was too ill yet allowed a visit just prior and awarded more visiting rights to the rest of the family allowing escorted only visit home to see myself. I was never included in meetings, I was the Nearest Relative they sought to displace and even tried to arrange vital meetings when I was not informed. The Tribunal took place over two days and Elizabeth had a brilliant report done by Dr Bob Johnson. Fortunately Cambian’s luxury offices could not be more conveniently situated for me to visit at Fulham Reach so I visited their offices.
“YOU ARE OVERTURNING THE APPLE CART”
From Cambian to Phoenix House Stepping Stones Care Home where the priority was arranging a CTO and displacing myself as the Nearest Relative. Got all your shocking conversations especially that Elizabeth had no food at the weekend. SHAME ON YOU CQC to rate this care home as Good.
I would thoroughly praise the Court of Protection who allowed Elizabeth to come home but we were constantly harassed by ENFIELD COMMUNITY REHAB AND Dr Moorey is mentioned in the file notes. Dr Moorey facilitated the visits for Enfield Community Rehab Team to infiltrate the CHTT on their visits home. My accurate account of our experience is below:
“GET HER BACK WE’RE PAYING FOR THAT”
They were reporting for court purposes negatively backing one another up and Elizabeth was told (overheard by one of my appointed carers) “It wont be long before you are back at Phoenix House – a care home where Elizabeth was unhappy in.”
This is abuse on a par with the recent Panorama Programme on Cygnet so as you can see you do not even have to be referred to such institutions as abuse goes on everywhere and ENFIELD is a prime example. To deprive medication to force return to a care home hundreds of miles away from home and family where Elizabeth had no food at the weekend.
For any Doctor to knowingly prescribe dangerous drugs for well and truly over the manufacturer’s guideline period is negligent.
Not much mention is made of the wonderful care I provided through Working to Recovery and how psychotherapy benefitted Elizabeth – that when she came home we did not recognise her. She was confident, she could talk indepth without losing her temper, she looked good and has lost weight, was suntanned after coming back from Australia. She was petrified of heights and going downhill whilst at Mays Cottage where she was forced to attend safeguarding meetings against myself as mother brought about by the local community treatment MH team. The minutes were sent to the LGO/PHSO who stated breach of code of conduct on the part of the Trust and Enfield Council.
We have seen problems with Elizabeth through neglect – take for instance “NO TO SECTION 117” – This is aftercare so what has been happening is Elizabeth has been dumped into the community time and time again without support. There is certainly no support under a CTO as this is just being used to abuse a vulnerable person. The CTO papers are written deliberately negatively so as to fail tribunals and to ensure that the CTO continues providing extra funding to the community team who threaten the vulnerable person with constant mention of recall to hospital where there is a shoestring of staff – it is noisy and volatile and not the right environment to get well in. Professionals write in the most dreadful manner and like to play on confidentiality using gaslighting techniques and coercion to stop a relative such as myself from seeing the files and that is because it is protection for them to remark that “she doesn’t want you to see the files” Well I have them and it is no wonder my daughter is not getting the right treatment when there is such a pack of lies written in these files and facts and information incorrect which can only be rectified if there was openness and transparency.
Skimming through this report by Dr Helen Moorey – it is all deliberately written negatively and all about medication and its importance when the report/previous reports does mention that the medication had no effect whatsoever on Elizabeth. Talk about contradiction!
It is mentioned that Clopixol Acuphase was injected into Elizabeth, most recently Lorazepam and it was attempted yet again to give Haloperidal to Elizabeth on Suffolk Ward. The reason they have difficulty in managing patients – I will give you a prime example:
I was just leaving Suffolk Ward when a patient was knocking on the window. A nurse said “I will report you to Dr Moorey if you keep doing this as we only have two members of staff on duty. So on these wards patients are neglected just like under private institutions because of staff shortages, lack of therapy – main emphasis on drugs and at the weekend there will be nothing for Elizabeth to do.
They talk about inappropriate behaviour and comments but there is never any mention as to the inappropriate behaviour and comments by the Professionals themselves and this is why I am highlighting this important fact.
There is no mention of the fact that Elizabeth was badly beaten up on Suffolk Ward and had to be transferred to Edgware Hospital Trent Ward with head injury. A member of staff from Suffolk Ward told me all about this incident and that is happened in the yard outside. I very must appreciated the honesty of being informed.
It is mentioned About Section 2 lapsing and put under Section 5.2 but there is no mention of the fact that Elizabeth was ILLEGALLY DETAINED AND HAS AN APOLOGY LETTER.
Attempts were made yet again to displace me as NR as I objected to Section 3. So an Order was made by AMHP SM under Section 29 MHA to displace the nearest relative Susan Bevis. The London Borough of Enfield failed to appoint AHMP SW Debbie Morgan at the Royal Cts of Justice. Ms Bevis NR was given the wrong court details and was threatened with enormous costs to back out of proceedings when she represented herself in court and provided enormous evidence against the London Borough of Enfield including their safeguarding minutes as an example of how much bullying goes on. The Judge was most interested in the P450 liver enzyme test results which showed “poor/non metaboliser of psychiatric drugs.” I then found out that the legal advisers of Enfield Council had not gone back to court – I was forced to delegate my role which I did for one term only but I was wary of the fact that the underlying S3 was about to expire so I applied as Nearest Relative for Elizabeth’s release only to find out I was indeed the NR and I would most definitely query the previous tribunal – at this tribunal I was completely disregarded and no one wanted me up there in the MHA office of Chase Farm Hospital and that is because I corrected their CTO reports which showed Debbie Morgan as NR when in actual fact it was Elizabeth’s sister OR COULD IT HAVE BEEN ME ALL ALONG AS I WAS THREATENED WITH ARREST SIMPLY FOR NOT WISHING TO GO DOWNSTAIRS AND WAIT. Security was called and when my amended report was submitted to the MHA Office and dismissed like a piece of rubbish when I had spent so much time amending all the errors – the biggest being the wrong Nearest Relative on the report. So I am questioning the fact that I could have been the NR all along judging by their reaction.
So is it any wonder that Elizabeth has trouble in expressing herself and communicating – the condition of CBI and post traumatic stress disorder is not a mental illness but in fact INJURY.
Constantly behaviour is mentioned relating to Elizabeth – constantly this is wrongly associated with stopping medication when so many of us have noted that Elizabeth is having trouble processing information – that her thinking ability has been impaired because of INJURY and she is being denied physical healthcare under the NHS.
Current Prescribed medication
Risperidone 1.5 mg nocte NO it is in fact 1mg of the white tablet only and I have the prescription to prove it.
No Elizabeth was not nursed in a Special Care baby unit as mentioned in this report.
She has a folder of qualifications and studied catering but whilst at Westminster College she was on Prozac and could not manage on this drug which totally changed Elizabeth in her appearance and personality like never before.
Capacity and Consent to Treatment and Risk:
Under the Informed Consent Act Elizabeth has not been given full information on the drugs. She was given Clozapine when she lost capacity at the Royal Bethlem Hospital because she objected to going on this drug in the first place so they just mixed Olanzapine at max BNF levels with Quetiapine causing instability and loss of capacity so that the Clozapine could be introduced with Metformine – contra-indicated drugs.
Elizabeth is refusing treatment at present by way of drugs because they cause physical side effects of pain and severe side effects as mentioned above. X v FINLAND ECHR 2012 FORCED DRUGGING WITHOUT INFORMED CONSENT IS A LANDMARK CASE, which Dr Helen Moorey has been made fully aware of. Elizabeth has FULL capacity in refusing treatment. It is in fact “lack of capacity and insight” on the part of her treating team to ignore the physical health of my daughter and deny extensive MRI tests to establish the extent of injury when instead they like to “rule out anything organic”.
The fact of the matter is in the US many of these drugs are going through class action and it is only a matter of time until the UK catches up – this shows that the drugs are unsafe and have caused substantial injury – drugs like Risperidone, Aripiprazole, Olanzapine, Clozapine, Prozac – it is not a case of Elizabeth being unwell – it is a case like with so many others under the MENTAL HEALTH CARE OF THE UK THEY HAVE SUFFERED INJURY AND CBI – CHRONIC BRAIN IMPAIRMENT so it is highly negligent of any Doctor to ignore such evidence and now the RcPsych has had to admit about the dangers of anti-depressants and difficulties in withdrawing.
The Opinion is that Risperidone is the answer in well controlling such “symptoms” of thought disorder and delusions when in fact Elizabeth is INJUURED BY THEIR TREATMENT OVER MANY YEARS AT MAX LEVELS OF CONCOMITANTLY PRESCRIBED DRUGS.
Recommendations by Dr Helen Moorey:
“It is my recommendation that …………..has a further period of inpatient treatment. If discharged from S3 today it is my opinion that ………… will choose to leave hospital and will not stay in her supported accommodation or agree to start treatment and that under these circumstances her health is likely to further deteriorate and she is likely to place herself in situations where she may be vulnerable and pose a risk to others.
The main problem was the environment and accommodation, which was temporary however circumstances have now changed. Elizabeth has come out as top bidder for a council flat. She was nervous about the viewing but loved the flat when she saw it. So this report is dated 31st May and the viewing of the flat was on Friday and Elizabeth now has the keys for her very own flat after all this time and that is because I got involved in assisting her with the bidding as she was losing interest after so very long of being in temporary accommodation miles from home. It is very important for someone to have stability and at the age of 32 Elizabeth should not be kept in supportive housing/living accommodation as one of the problems is that Elizabeth’s condition of CBI can affect her communication skills and interactions with others so when you put someone like Elizabeth in a shared house, staffed by untrained support workers this is not a brilliant solution. All the personal budget was going on this scheme and others providing nothing for Elizabeth to do in the community. What a shambles community care is when it is simply not provided and a hospital in need of their beds just dump people into the community after weeks/months/years on their wards without any proper support in place and I have the discharge procedures of Chase Farm Hospital which I will include on another blog. So now that Elizabeth has her own peaceful flat and not shared accommodation there is hope for recovery. My father with Alzheimers had his own flat and with direct payments I employed regular staff. which benefitted him.
THERE IS ALSO AN INPATIENT NURSING REPORT BY CECILE SHALO CHASE FARM HOSPITAL ENFIELD.
Cecile comments that Elizabeth gets irritated when staff prompt her to comply with oral medication – X v Finland 2012 ECHR – Drugging without Informed Consent! The question is who wouldn’t be irritated to be offered a drug previously found to be allergic to which is totally ineffective and we have seen that at first hand having had Elizabeth at home and that goes for all the other drugs as mentioned in a file note that none of them have had any effect. Professionals should in my opinion try the drugs themselves so that THEY have insight but how many of them would wish to risk their lives.
The ward have put her on 15 minutes of observation – I think that is appalling – just imagine how anyone would feel being on 15 minutes of observation. How restrictive is this is this classed as care ? Of recent the Dad started keeping in touch by calling? – this is not what I heard from Elizabeth.
It is not true to say that Elizabeth’s friend visits her on the grounds as now currently she is not allowed out at all and is kept a prisoner on Suffolk Ward.
Report states that Elizabeth keeps a low profile with minimal interaction with both staff and other patients Good! – as having read these reports how can you possibly trust anyone. So why in that case is she on 15 minutes watch?
Cecile comments she has no insight of her illness. Her personal care is OK. It is the team who choose not to have any insight due to the fact an MRI scan is long overdue. Elizabeth apparently becomes more paranoid when prompted to engage with ward activities. This is why her own flat is the best solution and a CTO completely wrong – there are at least 5 mentions of Aspergers in the file but there is even greater evidence when you look at the vast quantities of drugs prescribed that injury has occurred. So it all seems to be about drug pushing in breach of human rights, lack of proper assessments in terms of MRI scans, injections and threats. Elizabeth is terrified of injections. Elizabeth has the condition of complex PTSD which only recently has been admitted under Enfield for the first time but PTSD is an injury. Elizabeth gets terrified if someone gets too close to her – it is noted she has not been secluded or restrained but how else was Elizabeth injected then?
So once again Cecile feels a CTO is the right course of action so she can be better managed and not only that she suggests a depot injection although it is unclear what depot injection she refers. So how much does a CTO cost and this would go to the community team who state “NO TO SECTION 117” AFTERCARE.
Before any Depot Injections are forcibly given – the Brain Injury Charities need to do their assessments as reading through the file records points to gross inaccuracy and error.
“GET HER BACK WE’RE PAYING FOR THAT”
Cecile refers to affects on “hearing” but seems to be confused mixing up he with she – who on earth is “he”? It must be costing at least £900 per night and there is no way Elizabeth will ever get better in this environment of Suffolk Ward.
WE TOTALLY DISAGREE WITH THE INTRODUCTION TO A DEPOT INJECTION CECILE AND I HAVE CONTACTED THE BRAIN INJURY SPECIALISTS WHO TRULY WOULD UNDERSTAND THE EXTENT OF DAMAGE CAUSED BY FAULTY TREATMENT OVER MANY YEARS UNDER PSYCHIATRIC CARE AND I WOULD BE GUIDED BY THE RESULTS OF MRI SCANS CARRIED OUT BY THESE CHARITIES AS IN LIGHT OF THE BARBARIC TREATMENT ON SUFFOLK WARD AND INACCURACIES IN FILE RECORDS HOW CAN WE HAVE ANY TRUST OR FAITH IN THIS RESPECT? ALSO THE BRAIN INJURY SPECIALISTS WOULD HAVE A GOOD IDEA OF WHAT CARE IS NEEDED IN THE COMMUNITY UNLIKE A MENTAL HEALTH TEAM.
Perhaps detention on Suffolk Ward may have been long and drawn out due to her being unsettled in her temporary accommodation however now Elizabeth has got a great start ahead. I would like her care transferred following a proper assessment to any one of three brain injury specialist charities who can assess the extent of injury caused and then I would feel rest assured that finally Elizabeth is getting the right treatment in the community.
CECILE SHALO recommends to detain Elizabeth and force drug her with depot injections in breach of X v Finland ECHR 2012 – being kept a prisoner on such a ward is enough to make anyone feel distressed that is for sure.
This attitude of continuance with a drugging regime previously found to be ineffective and of a nature that has caused INJURY is most certainly negligent and to ignore the evidence is causing MORE HARM THAN GOOD and I want there to be accountability if anything happens to my daughter because of her “treatment” by these Professionals who discard research and evidence by Psychiatrist Dr Peter Breggin and even by the ROYAL COLLEGE OF PSYCHIATRY WHO AFTER ALL THESE YEARS HAVE HAD TO ANNOUNCE AND ADMIT THE TRUTH ABOUT ANTI-DEPRESSANTS. These professionals are in breach of the law – the Informed Consent Act 2017.
The best thing would be for Elizabeth to be referred to the RADAR project to be under Dr Joanna Moncrieff who is researching the true effects of withdrawal from powerful medications prescribed long term.
It is a great pity that more Doctors do not consider the harm they are doing.
I would also point out that it is not true that Elizabeth does not want to share information with me. This is the latest information she has shared and also it has been suggested that Elizabeth may not be happy with my blog but Elizabeth knows all about it and I have her opinion in text message. She has also written on the blog itself.
At the recent CPA meeting I was nearly stopped from going in when I could produce evidence by way of text message.
The system is so very wrong when professionals and secrecy is played upon to avoid any legal action if harm is caused to anyone which in this case is Elizabeth whose treating team totally dismiss the fact that Elizabeth is a poor/non metaboliser of psychiatric drugs, prone to adverse drug reaction and past reports that state that the drugs have no effect and do not work. They also dismiss conflict of opinion on diagnosis in favour of “Paranoid Schizophrenia”.
Dr Helen Moorey
Dr Jeremy Greening
If Depot Injections are given to Elizabeth they will be against the Informed Consent Act 2017 and in breach of X v Finland ECHR 2012 Drugging without informed consent. The UK is without doubts in breach of human rights and patients like my daughter are knowingly being drugged on dangerous medications that do not work and have no benefit whilst Psychiatrists try to justify their use but I have read Dr Peter Breggin’s research and there is must dishonesty within Psychiatry and much money being made out of misery.
The best thing that could have happened to Elizabeth is being awarded her own flat so the longer Dr Moorey detains Elizabeth the more wastage of public money when for a fraction of money by way of direct payments were awarded Elizabeth could be helped moved successfully into her very own home.
Elizabeth has just contacted me to ask me to come to the ward to bring some clothes but I have been so busy today. I am gradually taking things round to her beautiful new flat and I am trying to sort out her housing benefit. How on earth could Elizabeth manage without some help in this respect. She has been damaged with CBI as a result of her treatment.
