What is happening in £662,600 a year Mental Hospitals-CQC Reports 2011-2016.



The new age of for profit Britain requires a monopoly of increasing, maximum profit commodities.

Whilst the Mental Health Taskforce Report harvested, it said nothing about how it intended to improve the state of our mental health hospitals, despite their ever increasing budget eating a quarter of our NHS funding.

Hospitals are paid on average £900 per patient per night, and locked wards £12,500 a week.

With such huge sums on offer, is it any wonder we have the highest number of MHA detentions and retentions ever known.

And the highest number of detentions after s2 MHA assessment stay.

The only rights a patient has, is to information about their treatment and to appeal to a Tribunal, but patients are not being informed of them, despite access to IMCAs.

Neither families nor patients are being involved in ‘treatment’ the CQC stating;

The biggest issue we found for patients who were…

Simon Chapman, A Very Distinguished Fucking Anarchist

the void


Over the last couple of days the strangest thought has plagued me.  Two simple ugly words have kept emerging, only for me to lock them out and ridicule them as bizarre.  Simon’s dead.  Just to write it down feels like treachery.  Part of me looks forward to seeing him, to sharing a drink and dispelling this nonsense.  He’d say something wry, and witty and that would be that.  He was good like that.  Was.  Sometimes the shittiest word to ever have to use about a friend.
