I offered several times to speak in private to a Director, but on every occasion you backed out. This dishonours not only your values but you, as a public Mental Health Trust Board, as individual mental health professionals AND as empathic fellow human beings. It shames you. By now, I might have had a PhD and gone on to a fine research career. Instead I languish in social housing, isolated from my true career, bullied by neighbours who do not understand me and with very grim financial and housing prospects. Many times, I go to sleep wishing never to wake - and if that does not shame you, nothing ever will. So very nearly, I was one of your marble army of victims, with dead, sightless eyes, that lie in mortuary freezers.
I aim to ensure this never happens again. In this, I have been castigated, brushed under the carpet, insulted and ignored. My wounds increase as you tread on me - there is a stink of suppuration but you ignore it. Under this filth and despair I am a decent, caring human being who naively 'blew the whistle' on pre-existing disgraces. No matter how 'sorry' anyone is in private, or how 'successful' the culprits, a moral crime was committed. If your relatives were treated like this, you would continue speaking out, as I have.
PLEASE HELP ME. DO SOMETHING. I do not wish to go to London Appeals Court, but you force me to - because none of you will stick by your values, as individuals or as a group. You offer no closure - closure means LISTENING, APOLOGISING and FAIR REPARATION - not denial, stone walling, silencing, draconian settlements made whilst I am suicidal then 11 years of cover ups by legal bully boys Bevan Brittan [who as employment legal specialists should have done better than prevent my case reaching Tribunal for 12 years].
Have you bothered to read this? I spent thousands of hours in writing fruitless appeals, when you already knew the truth - your seniors lied, you covered up. You must deal with this NOW or your reputation as a toxic trust will never be put right and the marble army will have died in vain.
