Annhilation of the Psyche by Black Quackery

1.0/ 5

*Annhilation of the Psyche through Black Quackery* Having been happily under CPFT, for 15 years continuously, the trainee, I was recently allocated, simply ‘decided’ to discharge me and discontinue anti-psychotic medication, arbitrarily and instantaneously, starkly against the views of the 6 qualified NHS psychiatrists I had seen previously Consequently, I have suddenly lost: >Access to NHS psychiatrists >Excellent weekly visits from Dick Phillips >Antipsychotics >NHS clinician to support benefit claims >Any hope of readmission At the time, when Skandali, the unqualified doctor, cooked up this drastic, reckless, unobjective and tyrannical ‘masterplan’, I was: >Too scared to live in my home >Witnessing phenoma I can only label as supernatural / evil / demonic >Experiencing insomnia and terrible nightmares >Attending A and E, every week, convinced I was about to die >Uncharacteristically irratible / aggressive >Anxious The unqualified (and unaccompanied) doctor, Skandali, saw me on two occasions only, preceding the discharge On the first such occasion, she told me I was “ill”, and raised the antipsychotic and on the second, discharged me and abruptly discontinued antipsychotics, seemingly on a total whim My GP said that the complexities of my conditions, and of the medications are, “beyond his training and experience”. I told Skandali of this and she replied: “I have the power to do it” I also asked Skandali a most elementary, and important question: “Do you think there is anything wrong with me?”, to which she responded, “I cannot answer that question”, before discharging me, regardlessly If, by her own admission, she could not decide if I was ill, then why, precisely, was she discharging me? So, with a soul full of loathing for (subjectively) Skandali’s stinging autocracy, Sadim Black Quackery touch, and callous miscalculations, I involved PALS My GP, thought I needed more MH input, was obviously opposed to this discharge, and didn’t even believe me initially, re. this discharge. As the discharge actually took place, he was in the process of readmitting me, when the ‘neutral’ PALS investigator, another NHS psychiatrist, told my GP that “There is nothing wrong with him [me]”, before this investigator had spoken to those involved in my treatment Since then, as I was too terrified to live in my own home, I have had no other option but to move in with my parents I have continued to see an experienced, highly regarded private psychiatrist (who *is* a qualified doctor). He has seen me in parallel with the NHS services regularly for 8 years. He is of the opinion, which is in agreement with the plethora of qualified NHS psychiatrists I have seen over the years, that I am suffering from ‘Chronic Phreniform Psychosis’. This indicates that I have been suffering from a form of psychosis for a long time I might consider litigation, barring the fact that, unlike a heart surgeon, for example, you can’t really be wrong in psychiatry. Also, my experience from the PALS enquiry is that the whole lot of them stick together and stick their heads together to come up with justifications one cannot easily query, with esoteric, abstruse medico-jargon and subjectivity that a lawyer alone could not cope with. It seems to be a very murky area. Also, judging by the time, effort and money the NHS put into my PALS enquiry (whose outcome was decided before it began), I could quite imagine, the NHS, threatened with a lawsuit, finding money for QCs, for example, by discharging very ill patients. It is not about the patient What would, ‘The Man on the Clapham Omnibus’, think about this? My advice to those currently with CPFT is to refuse a doctor who isn’t a doctor. Also, do not think that PALS will resolve anything. My complaint backfired even with my solicitor sister mediating and a private psychiatrist in the background. It is NHS versus NHS; they simply will not bring about their own downfall But, so as to give a totally balanced perspective, my support worker, Dick Phillips was gold dust, and the NHS doctors were great also, that was until…

1/ 5

Some very unpleasant staff, who have an attitude towards narcissism, especially Dr Mann, who seemed to rejoice in telling lies, as if she may have mixed up names, but there was no need for the level of rudeness during each meeting. I always left feeling much worse. Also a member of staff called ‘Dean’ has on many occasions been aggressive and almost to the point of using violence and this was during a group meeting. He is unprofessional and not altogether ‘with it’. He makes baseless, dangerous accusations that have no basis in fact, and then seems unwilling to listen. A deeply unpleasant experience overall.

1/ 5

I've been in the system for well over a year now, I thought I was getting a good service at first with regular appointments and therapy sessions that seemed to be going well. I was then put on medication for Bipolar Disorder and I feared that I had been mis-diagnosed, I called them up to arrange another appointment with a new psychiatrist and they told me that I wouldn't get an appointment as soon due to covid (I was fine with this) I waited a few weeks and stopped taking the medication as it was making me sick and suicidal. I got a letter though nearly 6 months ago saying I was now eligable for an appointment and to wait for another letter confirming an appointment, I waited around 3 months and called, I couldn't get through (i tried every day for 3 days to try and get through) i called again around 2 weeks ago and was told someone would get into contact with me, they never did. I called again yesterday and was promised a call back but alas no call AGAIN. This Mental Health "service" is appalling, they never answer the phone on any of the extensions, they never call back, it takes months and months for anyone to acknowlege you're in the system and when they try and "investigate" why you haven't heard anything , you never hear anything until you have to eventually call back because they've forgotten. On another note, they rarely (if ever) actually listen to your needs, they just give you medication and send you on your way. As a Mental Health Service you'd have thought they would try and help rather than cause more unnecessary anxiety.

No treatment offered. Rude and uncaring staff. Can’t remember her name, but I saw a lady in a wheelchair for an assessment. She didn’t even ask for the forms I had to fill in, they’re deciding whether they’ll see you prior to the assessment and only seeing you because they have to.
