Mrs Tracy Taylor took FIVE-AND-A-HALF MONTHS to provide her jaundiced account of events, which was packed with gross misrepresentations, mistakes and omissions. DURING THIS TIME I WAS VERY DELIBERATELY KEPT IN THE DARK, AND DID NOT HAVE AN INKLING OF WHAT WAS IN MR MARK SENIOR'S 99-PAGE REPORT, a report that I was going to be shown and asked to discuss at 'the Meeting'. THAT WAS THE PLAN. HOW VERY CAREFULLY MR SENIOR AVOIDED ANY INDEPENDENT CLINICAL OPINION, AND HOW GULLIBLE HE WAS TO BELIEVE SOME OF WHAT OTTO BOCK TOLD HIM - THEY WERE, AFTER ALL, A VERY INTERESTED PARTY!
They evidently didn't consider the sun when designing this wall ...
But WHY did it take five-and-a-half months when Mrs Vivien De La Fuente, Associate Director - Rehabilitation Services had written to me on 10th November stating '... the Trust recognises the importance of responding (to complaints) in a timely way and has set an internal time limit of 3-months. This allows for a thorough investigation to be undertaken but also provides us with the best opportunity of reaching a mutually agreeable resolution'.
Absolutely NO attempt was made to reach a mutually agreeable resolution - Messrs Mark Senior and Tracy Taylor saw to that!!!!!!!!!
Wasn't I entitled to question:
WHY nothing was happening?
WHY I was being DELIBERATELY DENIED ANY ORTHOTIC TREATMENT?
WHY I was DELIBERATELY FORCED TO MANAGE WITH COMPLETELY WORN-OUT ORTHOSES THAT WERE DAMAGING MY FEET AND DESTROYING MY MOBILITY day in day out?
I requested refurbished orthoses early in November but I was deliberately ignored! I made the same request on 19th November of a General Manager who seemed eager to help and promised to investigate - and I was deliberately ignored. I was eventually provided with a replacement pair in early February - after three months of hellish pain, which had a profound effect on my feet, mobility and general health, from which I have still not recovered. I only used to get 'cramps' in my calves occasionally until then. Then I started to get them almost every night, because I had as good as 'seized up' due to forced inactivity.
Everyone knows the score - I was deliberately refused orthotic treatment simply BECAUSE I HAD MADE A COMPLAINT. MESSRS MARK SENIOR AND TRACY TAYLOR CANNOT DENY THIS. OTTO BOCK REFUSED TO TREAT ME WHILST A COMPLAINT WAS OUTSTANDING AND I REFUSED TO WITHDRAW IT. MEANWHILE, THE TRUST DECIDED NOT TO ALLOW ANYONE ELSE TO TREAT ME AS THEY WOULD HAVE SEEN WHAT HAD BEEN ALLOWED TO OCCUR, AND, HEAVEN FORBID, MIGHT HAVE SPOKEN UP IN MY DEFENCE. THIS IS SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOUR BY VERY SENIOR NHS EXECUTIVES.
Three nuns die and go to heaven.
At the Pearly Gates, they are met by St. Peter, who says, 'Sisters, you all led such exemplary lives that the Lord is granting you six months to go back to earth and be anyone you wish to be.
The first nun says, 'I want
to be Sophia Loren;'
And *poof* she's gone.
The second says, 'I want to be Madonna and *poof* she's gone too.
The third says, 'I want to be Sara Pipalini ..'
St. Peter looks perplexed. 'Who?' he asks.
'Sara Pipalini ,' replies the nun.
St. Peter shakes his head and says, 'I'm sorry, but that name just doesn't ring a bell.'
The nun then takes a newspaper out of her habit and hands it to St. Peter.
St Peter reads the paper and starts laughing. He hands it back to her and says ... ...
'No sister, the paper says it was the 'Sahara Pipeline' that was laid by 1,400 men in 6 months.'
If you laugh, you're going straight to hell!
Mrs Tracy Taylor does not have the guts to answer why she allowed the situation to get out of control and then covered up the truth by responding as she did. It may only be my opinion, but I do not believe that Mrs Taylor is a fit person to lead an NHS Trust after the way she has treated me. Why don't the Board of the Trust examine my very reasonable Formal letter of Complaint and press for an Independent Clinical Review, to avoid any allegations of complicity? I have more than enough evidence to show them - including the unsuitable shoes and the totally worn out orthoses that I was FORCED to have no choice but to rely on, day after day, week after week, month after month.
And, think about it, as Mrs Taylor has treated me the way she has, if she is allowed to get away with it, how likely is it that as she has picked on one Patient to bully, out of the blue, how likely is it that she will do it again? And has she acted like this before? These questions need to be fully investigated.
The Data Protection Act
The Trust were forced to disclose their records because of the Data Protection Act - how they dragged their feet!
I can only back up a lot of claims because I exercised my rights under the Data Protection Act and obtained a copy of the Trust's records, and what an unusually long while that took! More about that later! I detect the hand of ... ...
A veritable bonfire of integrity!!!!!
Under construction - Coming soon!
