Police now the only NHS mental support in crisis.MHA amendments 2017. Removal for ‘Treatment’. Private Mental’s Ultimate Harvesting Tool.

It appears the police are being used as the only mental health emergency help for those suffering from mental issues, despite the extra millions the government have ploughed into NHS Health and Social Care Trusts, many like Sheffield Health and Social Care are now private companies making profit out of our NHS.
It has been reported that NHS trusts do not have crisis teams and are merely contacting the police when a person is in mental health crisis.
The police, together with an independent mental health act Practioner are then assessing that person under detainment by s117 MHA in a place of safety, and generally referring them to private for profit NHS mental hospitals anywhere that has a bed for which up to £13,000 a week is being paid.

 

Here is a report of one such NHS patient in crisis of what happened to them
I particularly enjoyed hearing a recording recently of a call to a CrisisTeam by a patient who chose to record their own call ‘for training and monitoring purposes’ and it involved a person asking for someone to talk to as they recognised their own relapse and having tried various distraction techniques of their own, before ringing. To say my gast was entirely flabbered as the nurse sought to quickly get rid of the call and ring 999 is to dramatically understate things: there was just NOTHING there to justify ringing the police. A person wanted to talk: it was bluntly (and rudely) refused and the actual words used by the patient seemingly ignored, the phone went down and the local police received a 999 call.

Is this now the mental support our NHS is offering and how can this help and improve mental health ?

An English man’s home is no longer his castle from Monday 11th December.

This historic bastion of common law refuge is weakened by Mental Health Act 2017 amendments.

As police can enter anyone’s home, be it tent or shed, and search for and remove an occupier to ‘a place of safety’ and provide any enforced ‘treatment’, if they suspect he is ‘ suffering from a mental disorder.

And he can then be detained interminably under the MHA or MCA .

This may seem beyond belief but it is terrifyingly true.

It gives the  Nanny State and private mental health services the ultimate power.

The Mental Health Act s135 allows such an ultimate, disproportionate interference with a person’s human rights- the removal of his legal competence ,

‘with a warrant’ obtained form a magistrate without notice,  if there

‘is reasonable cause to suspect that a person believed to be suffering from…

Autistic/Learning Disabled Adults are never allowed to remain or live with their families. Why ? Universal Health Services own Cambian and Cygnet. What do we know about them?

For those thousands of autistic/ learning disabled holed up, illegally in ATUs for ‘treatment’ the grim, unfaceable reality is, that they will never be free. And their families will never be able to see them again for life without the control, supervision and constant threat of a mental hospital for life.

THIS is the future fate of all ASD/LD, as they are the ultimate Health and Social Care Cashcows.

And Acts like the Mental Capacity Act, Mental Health Act and more recently the Health and Social Care Act 12 have been passed to ensure their fate.

The plan for the LA/ASD is simple, they are harvested to ATUs all over the UK on a commercially aware basis but only to private venture capital backed NHS ATUs, mainly owned by US multinationals UHS or Acadia.

Who are paid up to £13,000 a week by the NHS CCGs under HSCA, as the private ATU is the only ‘specialised provider’. so they remain as long as possible as shown by the 7 days of action campaign .

To be discharged, they have to have an agreed care package from their local CCG/LA, this generally can only be to a community living unit in their local area usually owned by the very Company, who owns the ATU from where they are being discharged, as this again is the only ‘specialised provider’ under HSCA.

133 million has been given to LAs to facilitate their move to these ‘community living’ units under the lie of them going home and additional CARE LA funding is available to pay these local providers, as on average supposedly because of deemed complex needs the ASD/LD can command over £8,000 a week for life, so they are a hugely lucrative commodity.

UHS PIC 1e275a4f3c2d6020578c358a360dd8f9

UHS own more than 200 psychiatric facilities in the USA and admitted nearly 450,000 patients last year.

UHS now run nearly half of UK NHS mental health services, owning both the ‘community living’ provision of the Cambian group and the Cygnet group

Health and Social Care Foundation Trusts commission UHS services for Clinical Commissioning Groups, as the only ‘qualified providers’ under the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

Nearly a fifth of NHS England’s budget is already spent on mental health services.

In July NHS England named  its new adult/CAMHS care models to Cygnet hospitals just 10 days after some rated inadequate by CQC.

Priory Group are the main other providers. See here.

https://www.england.nhs.uk/mental-health/taskforce/imp/mh-new-care-models/

The inadequate/abusive mental services despite all media propaganda is not a shortage of money.

Since last year all new inpatient admissions to private hospitals.

And mainly enforced under MHA section, or MCA ‘incapacity’.

And unlike in…

Dying for Profit

R-762328-1414847440-1947.jpeg dying

A depressing month heralded in a shocking NHS Learning Disabled Mortality Review, forced by the revelation our NHS investigates 1 % of the deaths of the Learning Disabled in their care, two Inquests of autistics concluding ‘natural causes’, and another is likely, from the findings of an NHS England’s investigation into Thomas Rawnsley’s death.

With the inevitability of even fewer inquests and more ‘natural causes’ deaths by the introduction this month of  certification of deaths by Medical Examiners, rather than Coroners.

We have few investigations, let alone independent ones, into those dying in state care, despite ever increasing deaths, and the fact that back in 2013, MENCAP reported 37% died due to inadequate health care at a rate of 1,200 a year.

https://www.mencap.org.uk/press-release/mencap-research-scandal-avoidable-death-1200-people-learning-disability-die

So state ‘care’ is becoming evermore unaccountable, even for death, and evermore expensive, with nearly a fifth of our total NHS and care budget spent on it, and almost all care and treatment for the autistic and learning disabled is now provided by monopoly venture capital backed private providers with an overriding duty to provide ever more profit.

And no one is even commenting on, let alone doing anything about the quality of these public/private services costing billions, even if they result in the death of a service user.

NHS England didn’t want anyone to see its commissioned University of Bristol Learning Disability Mortality Review Annual Report 2017,so publication was held back from November to the day after the local elections and the day before a long bank holiday.

NHS refused any press conference or media comment and Jeremy Hunt disappeared from Parliament before he could be asked a question on the report.

Such is Ministerial and NHS Responsibility

https://www.hqip.org.uk/resource/the-learning-disabilities-mortality-review-annual-report-2017/#.Wu29kaQvwdU

Only 1131 deaths were referred to the programme because of lack of resources,  despite the NHS having enough money to pay £13,000 a week for the treatment they resulted from, and again through lack of funding, only 103 of these deaths were actually reviewed with no indication of when the remaining 1028 deaths would be investigated.

Of the 103 reviews, 13% of deaths were found by the review team to be down to:
Neglect or abuse.
Organisational dysfunction.
Delays in care or treatment.
Gaps in service provision.

The many inquests into the deaths of autistic and learning disabled including Danny Tozer, Oliver McGowan, Connor Sparrowhawk & Richard Handley and yet to be held Thomas Rawnsley are horrific testaments to the Review’s findings..

No wonder the government removed the right to life jury and Inquest from those held under MCA Dols.

So what was the NHS’s reply to the reports findings ?

We welcome this interim report, the first of its kind in the world.
( A black piece of PR as no other country has been forced to commission such a report because  disabled in state ‘care’ are dying for profit. So badly in fact, our government has been forced to issue annual death reviews)

These early lessons will feed into hospital and community services work including early detection of symptoms of sepsis and pneumonia prevention, constipation and epilepsy where there is significant progress.

( Surely hospitals and community NHS paid millions – up to 13,000 a week – should not be used until such basics exist within them. Such basics shockingly deemed ‘early lessons’ )

The NHS go on to say another 1.4m more will be spent this year so that those responsible locally as well as the University of Bristol and NHS HQ can ramp up the speed and number of reviews.

So 1.4 million for more death reviews, meetings and bureaucracy and private local profit, with no accountability or compensation for victims and their families.

But still very cheap , in comparison to the billions that would have had to be paid out, if we had USA accountability for patient care with Medicare representation in court.

Or even if we had Coroners Inquests with Juries- 2 millions being paid out in compensation to Connor Sparrowhawk and another.,

So shouldn’t our government and Court of Protection comply with its own laws and ensure that those held in MHA/ NHS treatment or MCA residential care do not die ?

And ensure that our public money is not wasted on unsupervised, lacking
the basics, proven unsafe and inadequate public/ privatised provision ?.

Does our government, NHS and courts not have a duty to protect our most vulnerable in and from state care ?

Unless the profit motive is removed from state care/treatment more will, and will be allowed to die, making that profit with impunity..

There can be no saving of lives by Carillion style bankruptcies just less culpability and more public money wasted.
