Racism in the NHS – Dr Anvita Swarnkar: Playing the Race Card

End Of Terror - Fight The Power!

On 20th December 2019, right before Christmas and my birthday celebrations, I was walking early morning through my local housing estate. I’d just been dropped off in the car by a retired magistrate friend and my ex partner, Nicola. The estate was full of police. By the allotments at the bottom of my road several armed police held machine guns to my head and arrested me for an alleged possession of a knife. PC Mark Waters had stated that I was brandishing an 8 inch kitchen knife but this was a complete lie as any kitchen knife was safely at home in my kitchen drawer and I was totally unarmed. I spent 6 hours in custody in the back of a van, handcuffed and then transferred to Adferiad Ward, St. Cadoc’s Hospital, Caerleon. It was a blatant case of false arrest. What was most frustrating was that the 50 or so police officers who took me down released information to the public saying that they had discovered me naked with a machete, threatening schoolchildren at a local school. This was widely disseminated on social media and used in court by the hospital doctors and nurses. Complete lies but they’ll do anything to lock me up these days. I was placed under Section 3 of the Mental Health Act (6 months compulsory detention) and put into the care of Dr Anvita Swarnkar. Dr Swarnkar is of Indian origin. She is a slight, well-groomed woman, who is the chief of the psychiatrists at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board Trust. I have never met a more stubborn and damaging power freak of a woman or psychiatrist. She has made my life a complete living hell. I was immediately placed on depot injections. A High Dose – about 450mg of Clopixol, an old style anti-psychotic medication manufactured by Lundbeck. I am allergic to this medication and have a long list of allergic reaction symptoms and this has been verified by neurology and gastro-enterology. The medication, which I am forced to take against my consent, makes me vomit (through hiatus hernia it induces) about 40-50 times daily. I have to defecate about 15 times a day, often shitting my pants. I have fits where my head shakes out of control and I have a permanent Parkinsonian tremor in my jaw and my right hand also shakes uncontrollably. I cannot read or write which is no…

Invasion of Privacy – Social Media and Internet Monitoring in Mental Hospitals

Facebook

I’ve been in the harder end of the UK Mental Health System for 22.5 years now. In those years I’ve been noticing a more and more restrictive approach to the way in which prisoners inside are treated. With the rise of internet and mobile phone technology and the advent of such popular inventions such as social media, there have been changes within the fascist totalitarian regime for ‘patients’. Not only do you lose all rights to your own body with such legislation that involved #treatmentagainstconsent you can also pretty much wave goodbye to any possessions that you may be used to relying on in the outside world. In the acute wards you can have access to a mobile phone, but it is at staff discretion. The staff will have their friends on the outside stalking you on social media to report back to the nurses and doctors if you do anything on it that they deem ‘illegal’. You have to be in bed at midnight and often the only way to charge your phone as you are banned from having chargers, is to hand your phone in to staff. They will hack and damage your phone. Often due to malice. I’ve lost about 3 or 4 mobiles in this way.In the lock up wards of PICU or low secure which I have also tried, there is no access at all to communications. The obsession of the dictator psychiatrists to control every aspect of society is quite extreme. I have worked as a social media manager for KryKey ( http://www.KryKey.com ) for 11 years. It is difficult inside nuthouses continuing your work. I also rely heavily on social media to stay in touch internationally with the global artists that I manage in music for http://shuffleartistmanagement.com – And the burgeoning #translation business is also reliant on web contact with clients and fellow global linguists. http://dragontranslate.com In Talygarn when they began their policing of social media, I had a ten minute window per day where I was allowed my mobile phone to use for calls and social media etc. This was to be policed by a member of staff. If I did anything that they regarded as mental illness I had this time suspended and phone removed for a week or two until Dr Basu gave his consent for me to get back the 10 minute window. He denied me any leave from…

Low-Secure Punishment, Priory Group Private Sector Experiences, Ty Cwm Rhondda.

ty cwm rhondda

About 18 months ago I was sectioned yet again under Mental Health Act and sent up to Talygarn where yet again I was subjected to Dr Basu. I had been trying for 8 years in as diplomatic a way as possible to remove this vile man from my care. We had never seen eye to eye. I found him to be a racist Muslim who even had me banned from drinking alcohol in my local pub, The Castle Inn, Caldicot. His corruption knew no bounds and he constantly attacked me with treatment against consent giving me the maximum dose of Clopixol depot injection, in spite of medical proof demonstrating my allergy from several specialists including Gastroenterologists and Neurologists. Even the manufacturers of Clopixol, Lundbeck, after I raised used the yellow / red flag complaint system, had acknowledged that I should not under any circumstances be given this drug. I’d written on multiple occasions to Chief Executive of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board Trust pleading for a change in medics. Basu carried on, revoking leave until I took this endofterror.org website down, Putting me in for long term care and proceeding with Clopixol depot injections. You meet the psychiatrist once a week in the mental hospital. Monday mornings was Basu’s ward round yet he was always at least 2-3 hours late. I was so frustrated and just had to find a way to get a change in consultant. He’d be openly racist to me as far as I was concerned as a White UK citizen so, wound up, I marched into the meeting and just said: “Look, you curry muncher, I’ve just had enough of you!” and walked back out. It’s not something I’m proud of and I’m not a racist but this was mild racism. My thinking was it would make him actually change the consultant. His partner, another Indian, filed a complaint along with Basu that I’d threatened to kill them and attacked them. He labelled me as a violent racist and I was immediately removed from Talygarn Acute Ward and transferred down to St. Cadoc’s in Caerleon to the PICU (Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit) locked ward. Immediately I was put on fullscale meds as punishment. At the time on the ward a criminal patient from Caerphilly was causing loads of problems. He actually raped a young girl with Learning Difficulties. He got away with it and was actually…

Gwent Police and Senior Mental Health Managers Meeting

gwent police hq

  On 26/07/17 I wrote to Gwent Police and senior Aneurin Bevan University Health Board Trust Mental Health Nursing Manager, Perry Attwell.   Hi Perry and Gwent Police, I have been wanting to write to you, with regard to the current status of my detainment under section of the mental health act at my home address. I have been subjected to the mental health act since 2nd April 1997. I have never been violent towards the police nor mental health workers during the 20 years in which I have been treated. At present, I feel that there is an over-reaction to me when I am processed for sectioning under the mental health act. There are up to 50 police officers in my street during a sectioning and the whole process is very daunting both for myself and also the officers. I am transferred in the back of the police van like a common prisoner and feel that this aggravated my early stay in hospital. As I am never aggressive, I am asking you that, for any potential future assessments, we have a low key approach whereby, if necessary the police can attend in a single car and transfer me in the back of a car, humanely, and so that my mental health in the community is preserved for any potential hospital assessment. I feel that as things stand, with such a hullabaloo raised, it doesn’t assist me nor my local community in the whole process. These most recent hospitalizations have cost me my career at university and I am really struggling to rebuild my life. I am never going to be violent or troublesome and do not wish to be portrayed in a bad light in my neighborhood with a vast police presence and a seemingly violent capture ahead of any mental hospital admittances. Also, Perry Attwell has mentioned to me himself that he would be arranging for me to be transferred directly to Talygarn and not being sent to the processing unit at St Cadoc’s. I ask for a response to this letter as I wish to improve the oft fractured relations I have with this whole service as part of my processing under the Mental Health Act. Theresa May says that she wishes to improve Human Rights for mental patients and here I believe that, at grass roots, I am helping to do just that. Regards Wesley Gerrard…

Dear Judith

judith paget

JUDITH PAGET – Chief Executive, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board Trust Last summer I was sectioned under the Mental Health Act. After two months or so in hospital I won my appeal against section in the Mental Health Review Tribunal Courts. I now have no psychiatric treatment and am a free man. I used my time in hospital to gather as much documentary evidence as possible and have reproduced in this blog post here my fight for justice. I wrote letters of complaint on an almost daily basis and am still dealing with the matter via the Ombudsman, my MP and Welsh Assembly Member plus the Minister of Health for the Welsh Government. If you are a detained mental patient I suggest that you fight in a similar manner and document your case as the results are apparent. I typed up all the documentation from handwritten letters photocopied in hospital and reproduce them here.I also submitted all my documentation to the Tribunal courts. ENJOY THE LITANY OF COMPLAINTS! (and responses) ————————————————————————————————————————————–                                                                                                                                                                                            18th July 2016 Dear Judith Paget, Chief Executive, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, I am sure that you remember me Judith. I have previously written umpteen complaints to you regarding the abominable health treatment I receive from employees of your Trust. Most of the time these complaints achieve nothing other than generating even more animosity between staff and myself. I am a patient and thus an end user of the service. I expect to be treated like a human being at all times by Aneurin Bevan UHB employees. I have been out of hospital since November, being discharged from section in January. My consultant psychiatrist was changed from Dr Basu to Dr Attwood. I was put under the care of the Abergavenny-based Assertive Outreach team with most of the outreach work being supervised by Freya Crowley….

End Of Terror Under Attack – Repression Inside Talygarn

iphone 6

The authorities – local mental health workers and Gwent Police – are not happy with End Of Terror exposing their misdeeds. When I first started the website there was an immediate clampdown and I was ushered off into the Mental Health system. I later understood why my then Doctor, Dr Darryl Watts, was unhappy about being published on the internet as he had been convicted of child sex offences. It is convenient for the authorities to mask their repression and cover up End Of Terror. I think it important though, to expose this hidden system to the world and I certainly, over the years, have taken much refuge in the fact that End of Terror exists. It is a crutch of support to me. 2015 was a horrific year for me. I was taken into the hospital on no fewer than four occasions. It took me out of my undergraduate university studies at Cardiff University and set my life back again. After nineteen years in the mental health system it came as no real shock and i am used to dealing with the State disrupting my life. It is an asset to be resilient and to forge on with life plans in spite of the constant mental health harassment and its infringement upon my liberty. During the last hospitalisation I was detained from July 2015 through to November. I was sat at home, minding my own business, doing work on the internet for my music business and out of the blue Dr Basu turned up with the police and a magistrate-signed warrant to remove me for assessment. I had done nothing whatsoever and was just carted off and incarcerated. Basu proceeded to give me the maximum dose of CloPixol Depot injection, something to which it has been proved I am allergic to. I had two stints on the secure PICU (Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit) Beechwood, St. Cadoc’s, Caerleon, for dissent on Talygarn Ward, Griffithstown County Hospital, Pontypool, where I was detained for the bulk of my stay. My notoriety as a patient precedes me on Talygarn and on the ward I have some formidable enemies, usually within the nurse management structure. People who are constantly vying for their own selfish climb up the ladder whose disdain for patients is most cruel. I name Keith Sullivan, deputy ward manager, Jayne Hughes, former ward manager and Paul Hanna, Deputy Nurse Manager, to…
