Paperwork/research is piling up. Horrible but necessary paperwork. Today I pulled together relevant bits from various online Board minute meetings. Gotta try and keep the legal costs down, particularly given the way in which the Southern Health ‘muck about muppet’ tactics are rocking up the the legal costs. Exponentially.
[Fundraising update alert. Tomorrow hopefully…]
I trawled through reams of online stuff, screen grabbing relevant sections, pulling them into a word document. I was struck/’pleased’/relieved by the Non-Executive Directors’ sensible contributions/interventions which I ‘live’ tweeted while I worked. Whistling and all. Glimmers of sense/sensibility in a beyond nonsensical experience.
Then I got to this. Section 26.2. Board minutes from 29.10.13. Relating to the CQC inspection report of STATT and other recent CQC inspections of Southern Health provision:
Does an NHS Foundation Trust with specialist learning disability provision really (really?) need to learn about epilepsy care and implement an epilepsy care pathway? One in four learning disabled people have epilepsy. I know this and I ain’t no medic. This ‘learning’ is shared across other divisions?
[howfuckingcrapshitecanthegobshitewankstainsbe?] This for me is like a state run nursery leaving a four year tot on the M25 and ‘learning’ that moving traffic can be catastrophic. Then sharing this ‘new learning’ among other state run nurseries.
We’re not talking proper risks here. Potentially life threatening operations, life limiting conditions and the like. We’re not talking anything really. Other than the most basic of ‘health’ care.
LB should never have died. And an NHS Trust should never legitimately be able to say that sharing an epilepsy care pathway is “learning”.
