Every year more than 100,000 people die in care, that’s almost one person dying every 5 minutes. That’s someone’s Mum, Dad, Son, Daughter, Brother or Sister. Families are left devastated, often without answers and many are prevented from finding out what happened.
The victims (and their families), many of whom have been forcibly imprisoned into care through NHS England’s 54 specialist mental health trusts, deserve better.
Cases of misdiagnosis are common. Leading to life changing conditions such as PTSD for those trapped, forcibly drugged, threatened, assaulted by those responsible for their care and their inactions, often due to the many complex pressures of the job imposed by those at the highest levels.
We are funding a new charitable trust:
- Giving all patients the care they deserve.
- Ensuring cases of misdiagnosis are reduced by prioritising those needing care.
- Independently review the unverified medical records, fabricated statements, false allegations & hearsay used to ‘section’ people (using the MHA).
- Ultimately, drastically reduce the 100,000+ deaths (to realistic targets to be agreed).
- Change legislation to make it illegal to detain a person, without a thorough investigation to the allegations of poor mental health without first performing due diligence on their claims.
- Develop the technologies needed to support a person through their care. Giving the person the ability to follow simple processes to challenge their detention and present their evidence clearly if they claim a misdiagnosis is being made.
- Fully independent legal support to challenge the decisions and compensate victims of misdiagnosis or where their health further deteriorated or ended in their death.
