At What Point Do The HSE Step In..?

I mean, if a fairground carnival ride had claimed 13 victims like some macabre Stephen King horror novel, they’d surely have shut it down.

Why is it different when it’s a mental facility?

Dr Rachel Daly also confirmed to the court that, at the time of his release, she was not consulted on the decision taken by an unnamed “member of the treating team”.

Unnamed, eh..? I wonder why.

An Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust spokesman said: “We would like to express our sympathy to the family and friends of Mr Parsons.

“We can confirm that we undertook an internal inquiry involving an elected governor from Bromley and the report and action plan have been approved by our board of directors and council of governors.

“Our inquiry identified that this incident could not have been predicted and that reasonable decisions were made about the treatment Daniel Atkins was receiving from us.

“However, our inquiry did highlight changes to practice that could be made that would reduce the risk of a similar incident happening again. We have implemented these changes.”

Let me translate: “Blah blah blah blah blah as our lawyers suggest blah blah blah untouchable blah blah”

    Do not be silly, you can not blame a politically correct, untrained numskull for doing something stupid. The bigger the idiot, the better the promotion prospects. That is how it goes.

    That’s how these Common Purpose “teams” work Julia. No one takes overall responsibility, they spread the blame and lessons will be learnt. Which they never are.

    “”When he was assessed in December 2013, Mr Atkins was found to have signs of hyper-mania, stating he was a judge with “exceptional powers and was in charge with everybody”.””

    Hmmmm. It appears he may be well qualified to serve on a Council or a quango somewhere. Perhaps even in the Family Court.

    I can imagine a politician speaking in Parliament saying “” For too long in this country we have overlooked the contributions that the mentally ill can make.””

    As I was reading, I thought blah blah blah from that spokesman and then Julia writes the words. Lol.
