This is a post from Justice for Thomas Rawnsley’s blog.
With photos taken of Thomas,months before he died, in an Adult Treatment Unit in Sheffield, where he was taken after a carer, had said’ How many fingers can I break this time’, but was unable to as Thomas was double jointed.
After this, Thomas was found difficult to care for, so was sent to this ATU, where he was the only patient, and keeping it open, by his abuse, being used, to claim £4,500 per week for the ‘care’, evidenced by the beyond shocking photos taken.
This is the unashamed use of the LA, and our government, of the most vulnerable for investment, and huge profit, using public funds, and breaching their statutory duty to care for them, but to claim the maximum money available under law for their ‘care’, on the basis of their ‘disbility’.
Since then there has been more abuse, and death, for profit, of our most vulnerable.
The only move, via Norman Lamb, and LB Bill, is to move them out of NHS, MHA ‘care’/’treatment’, to LA, MCA ‘care’, for life in independent for profit living, with no reviews.
Thomas, was placed in such independent living accommodation, where he was abused, and from where, he was sent to an ATU, where he died.
