Dear Victoria Derbyshire
I wrote to you on 15th June 2016 hoping that you would be able to share my story on your programme. Things with the NHS and their malpractice have continued to worsen since i wrote to you, and the behaviours NEED exposing. Even with an expert diagnosis of Autism for my son, we are still suffering at the hands of the mis-management of our PALS complaint and finding ever concerning emails shared through my access to personal data request.
I today received an email that is horrifying to read, especially in light as being innocent of their initial accusations of Fabrication & Induced illness. as a family we have been heartbroken, by allegations and intrusions, we have been defamed in utterly unacceptable ways. We need to take action, yet having previously spoken with a solicitor, we have no way of moving forward. He stated that although it appears that the NHS and local authorities have acted wrongly, suing for defamation is a “rich man’s game” and one that we will essentially wasting our time. I am beyond frustrated and upset as they need to be held accountable. As with an new email that has come to light today we have no confidence in the NHS moving forward. I am beside myself with anger and grief and need someone to help get justice. We have suffered harassment at the hands of ‘keeping an eye on this family’, yet we have ABSOLUTELY DONE NOTHING TO WARRANT THIS…. i have attached an email for you to see, which contains information that SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SHARED outside the confines of the Child Protection Meeting (CPC) and also, it as lies within it which i have audio recordings to prove. I have also sent you a link to my online blog that i tried to keep for my own venting and it is very personal, but anonymous. I am aware that i come across as NOT very media friendly due to my hot-headed language, however, it i can be very articulate and the blog really is only for release. It has details on there of emails from NHS staff members, letter to MP.
Originally i omitted staff names, but i have today contacted my local newspaper and they advised me that it is ok to share names with the print evidence and if there is any defamation, the staff must be given a chance to respond. I have informed the NHS that the Media are aware of this case, and that the local paper ARE picking it up, but with the in-depth and complex nature of the harm the NHS has caused us, they are choosing which angle to pursue.
I hope that this helps you find reason to look in to my situation, as this is happening across the country to parents of autistic children particularly PDA.
Please could someone contact me to discuss further. I am in desperate need to share this and gain support to fight this injustice.
