Australian Psychiatry corruption and Human Rights abuses

Australian Psychiatry corruption and Human Rights abuses

Secret Freedom of Information exempt medical records conceal Australian Human Rights abuses, corruption, maladministration within the medical profession and abuses of Psychiatry

Australia’s medical professionals engage in human rights abuses. The professions, Doctors [or those with no relevant medical qualifications but claiming to be doctors], nurses, hospital administration staff and administers of law enforcement authorities employed to enforce laws intended to prevent human rights abuses, act in co-operative coordinated efforts to conceal crimes, contrary to the requirements of their professions in medicine and law enforcement.  Australian Psychiatrists have been known to kill each other over the politics of rivalry for appointments to highly paid administrative positions.

You may find it difficult to believe that Australian public hospital system medical files could be Freedom of Information [FoI] exempt and that the person who is the subject of those files could be denied access to their medical files. That Freedom of Information exemptions to medical files can conceal crimes, corruption and abuses of the medical profession is obvious and apparent from medical file documents posted to this website.        Here is the evidence.

Mental Health nurse Ellen Lowry Identity concealed in medical records, disclosed after 13 years

In July 2002 Mental Health nurse Ellen Lowry came to my Atherton North Queensland home with a police officer and a “Dr Lisa Simpson”. I was arrested and taken to the Atherton Police station, not charged with a crime but transported to Cairns Base Hospital [CBH] and detained for eight days. Being provided with no information, I lodged a Freedom of Information request.  The Cairns Hospital medical file FoI release was 4 months beyond FoI legislated time requirements due to “a breakdown in the process” for which the Hospital FoI ‘Decision-Maker’ apologised in a letter dated 17 January 2003.

I had, with the illegal abuses of processes of the law, been placed under an Involuntary Treatment Order as a result of a court order application by an unidentified person for secret FoI exempt reasons.

Ellen Lowry the was ‘case officer’ who advised me “there was to no Mental Health Review Tribunal review of the ITO” within six weeks as required by the MHA 2000 “because of a lack of resources”, was the applicant for the Justice Examination Order [Identification FoI exempt on medical files but identified in 2014 AHPRA correspondence], is named nominated as my “Allied Person” in Cairns Hospital files, made threats of retribution if I refused to take medication, gave me Mirtazapine tablets [brand name Avanza] in the presence of treating psychiatrist claiming Mirtazapine were a Valium related [Benzodiazepine] minor tranquilizer and provided false, misleading & offensive information in documents [unsigned as authorised, including referring to my dead mother who was alive at the time]in documents presented to the Mental Health Review Tribunal of December 2002 that immediately revoked the ITO.   The drugs involuntary imposed upon me [Risperidone an antipsychotic and Mirtazapine] induced a near death experience with bouts of unconsciousness, blindness [tunnel vision with no peripheral vision] as my sensory systems began to close down and suicidal ideation.  Atherton Hospital & ‘case officer’ Lowry were unavailable & couldn’t be contacted for several days while I was experiencing these adverse side effects.

Information from a pharmacist was that Mirtazapine is an anti-depressant [Serotonin Specific Uptake Inhibitor] with a known side effect of suicidal ideation.  It is reasonable to believe that Dr Simpson [treating Doctor under the ITO] & Nurse Lowry new exactly what Mirtazapine was & what it would do to me when I was misinformed & given the medication.

Meeting Mental Health nurse Ellen Lowry 2001

In 2001 I requested that the Atherton Hospital Mental Health Unit request information from a Dr Howard Gorton whom I consulted in South Australia from June 1989 to October 1996. MHA nurse on behalf of the hospital refused to do so until several months later, having me sign a request for information from Dr Gorton & stating that she would do so, and then later claiming that no information had been made available by Dr Gorton. Nothing was discussed with Ellen Lowry it being pointless to do so until confirmation of my experiences and what Dr Gorton & I had witnessed over 7 years was confirmed by Dr Gorton. I did provide a one page summary of information and events concerning crimes and corruption of my former employer the State Bank of SA which Lowry claimed she had placed on my hospital medical file.  From that time MH nurse Lowry was constantly coming to my home parking her car on my front lawn. On each occasion I requested that she leave, not return & write me a letter if she had anything to say to me. I also lodged a Freedom of Information request for my medical file.   The document I had provided to MH nurse Ellen Lowry was not in the FoI release but a document later said to be a referral written by a Dr Dan Siskind Psychiatric Registrar [no medical board registration] signed by Ellen Lowry was within my FoI released medical files with the medical files of another person.  Ellen Lowry was extremely angry that I had made a FoI request.  The entire Atherton Hospital FoI released medical file was later stolen but pages from that file appeared in the Cairns Base Hospital March 2003 FoI released file.

Medical files of a person not known to me, released with my own FoI requested medical files

  1. R Phillip Bates Atherton FoI Dec 2001 – A letter from Atherton Hospital Shirley Godfrey Acting Director of Corporate Services dated 6 Dec 2000 [in error – should be 6 Dec 2001] requesting that I return medical files of “the other gentleman” Roger Phillip Bates, provided to me with my own Atherton Hospital files [of Roger James Bates] through a Freedom of Information request. The files to “the other gentleman” referred to his hernia operation & other health issues. Some pages contained information on the both of us & could not be separated.

The entire Atherton Hospital FoI released medical file was later stolen but pages from that file appeared in the Cairns Base Hospital March 2003 FoI released file.

ITO pg 88 87 RFA 84 85 Simpson

Involuntary Treatment Order [ITO] Cairns Base Hospital medical file of 2002 FoI release in 2003

Pages 84 and 85 Authorisation and declaration for ‘recommendation for assessment’ MHA 2000

Pages 88 and 87 Authorisation and declaration for ‘involuntary treatment order’ MHA 2000

Note at top of page 88: “If the doctor who made the ‘recommendation for assessment’ was an authorized psychiatrist the same authorized psychiatrist cannot make the ‘involuntary treatment order’

Freedom of Information exemptions of access to information with my medical files for some years prevented identification of Dr Alexandra Simpson [whom I’ve never met or spoken to] as the person who, contrary to the MHA 2000 safeguards against abuse, performed the role of authorizing both the ‘recommendation for assessment’ and the ‘involuntary treatment order’.

Correspondence from the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency [AHPRA – a federal authority] dated 19 February 2014 identifies Dr Alexandra Simpson as the person who made false declarations authorizing both a ‘recommendation for assessment’ and an ‘involuntary treatment order’ contrary to the Queensland Mental Health Act [MHA 2000] safeguards against abuses of the law and psychiatry.  Dr Alexandra Simpson’s identity is concealed as FoI exempt in the Cairns Base Hospital’s 2003 Freedom of Information [FoI] released medical files.  Her statutory declarations claiming to have examined and assessed me which would have required that we have at least one conversation are false declarations. I have never at any time had a conversation with anyone named Dr Alexandra Simpson or anyone claiming to examine & assess me under the MHA 2000.

My Cairns Base Hospital medical file Freedom of Information exemption of the identity of the person [identified in 2014 as Dr Simpson] making declarations under the MHA 2000 for a ‘recommendation for assessment’ and an ‘involuntary treatment order’ must be considered as evidence of the impropriety [crimes – false declarations claiming examinations & assessments were made & failure to comply with the MHA 2000 by those authorizations being made by the same person] and that the impropriety was known to Hospital administrators who decided that the FoI exemptions of the medical files were to apply.

The Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency [AHPRA] considered the failures of compliance with Queensland’s MHA 2000, known to all relevant law enforcement authorities that acted to conceal crimes, as reasonable and acceptable.

ITO pg 87  [pages 87 and 88 appear in reverse order]

Involuntary treatment order details and declaration by an authorized person

The authorised doctor’s details and declaration and date have been blackened out as Freedom of Information [FoI] exempt – Assessment is marked as carried out in person.

If any assessment of me by this person whose identity is FoI exempt was made it would have required that we meet and have a conversation. I would therefore have known their identity.  No assessment of me was performed for the ‘recommendation for assessment’ or the authorization of an ‘Involuntary Treatment Order’ that require a signed statutory declaration that they were performed.  At this time in 2002 I was given no information as a what appeared to be deliberate plan to create uncertainty and distress. I was over later years denied information to prevent discovery of crimes [abuses of Mental Health Act -MHA 2000] maladministration of Queensland public hospital system and abuses of Psychiatry.

This page 87 of my medical files appears to be the form used for the authorization for an ITO for a person in prison or in police custody, as indicated by the lower section headed ‘Information to decide if a second examination is required within 72 hours’.

The Mental Act 2000 [MHA 2000] requires only one examination assessment for authorization of an Involuntary Treatment Order for a person in prison or in police custody. The lower section of this page headed ‘Second examination – To be completed by an authorized psychiatrist (where required) pertains to the flow chart referring to the assessment having been done “by authorized psychiatrist” or “by other authorized doctor” and it having been done “in person” or “conducted via audio-visual link”.

The MHA 2000 requires that an “Involuntary Treatment Order” [authorizing a person to be detained without being charged with a crime, presented to a court for a bail application and eventually a trial] for a person not in prison or police custody, requires two [2] separate assessment examinations by two [2] authorized psychiatrists.   I was not in police custody or prison when these abuses of Psychiatry and crimes under Queensland’s MHA 2000 occurred in 2002.

Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency 2014 correspondence 19 February 2014

The FoI exemption of the identity of the people making the recommendation for assessment [medical file page 85 identifying details FoI exempt*] and authorizing the Involuntary Treatment Order [& detention under the MHA 2000 page 87 identifying details FoI exempt] is an indication of attempts to conceal non-compliance with the MHA 2000.

Correspondence dated 19 Feb 2014 [file ‘AHPRA Simpson 19 Feb 2014’] from the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency [AHPRA an Australian federal authority established in 2009] revealed the names of those whose identities had been subject to Freedom of Information [FoI] exemptions.

AHPRA correspondence dated 19 February 2014 [somewhat obscure] referring to communication from Dr Alexandra Simson refers to

Ellen Lowry “case officer” identification FoI exempt identified by Dr Simpson

  1. A “The practitioner asserts that an application for a Justice Examination Order was made by your case officer on 26 July 2002.” The identity of the applicant for the Justice Examination Order [JEO] is concealed as FoI exempt within the Cairns Base Hospital 2003 Freedom of Information [FoI] released medical files pages 89 ‘Request for assessment’, ‘Reasons’, ‘Applicant’s details’ & ‘Declaration’ all blackened out as FoI exempt and also page 83 ‘Applicant’s details’, ‘Applicant’s declaration’ and date blackened out as FoI exempt.

The “case officer” referred to is Atherton Mental Health Unit nurse Ellen Lowry who is named in the medical file as my “allied person” and has signed a letter purportedly written by a Dr. Dan Siskind that is within the medical file.   Ellen Lowry informed me that “there was to be no review of the ‘Involuntary Treatment Order’ by the Mental Health Review Tribunal”, as is required by the MHA 2000, “due to a lack of resources”.   There was no MHRT review by the MHRT for more than 4 months when in December 2002 the tribunal immediately revoked the ITO. Ellen Lowry presented documents to the tribunal, unsigned as authorized, containing false and misleading information.

The Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency letter dated 19 February 2014 referring to communication with Dr Alexandra Simpson states;

II B. “She conducted an assessment and authorized you to be placed under an ITO. The practitioner states that a second assessment was completed on the 2 August 2002 by another practitioner” [‘another practitioner’ unidentified in this AHPRA letter]

II C. “she made the declaration as part of the recommendation of assessment”

That the ‘recommendation for assessment’ & the authorization of an ‘Involuntary Treatment Order’ not be authorized by the same person [a requirement of the MHA 2000] appears in writing at the top of medical file page 88 that was provided to the AHPRA, has never been acknowledged by Dr Simpson, AHPRA, Queensland [dept.] Health & the MHA 2000 law enforcement authority Director for Mental Health Dr. Aaron Groves FRANZCP, the RANZCP, Queensland Minister for Health Gordon Nuttall MP and the CMC, all of whom were provided with the files by me or had access to the files [with no FoI exemptions] during purported investigations.

I was when police arrived at my home introduced to a “Dr. Lisa Simpson”. I have never had a conversation with anyone by the name of Dr Simpson.

The AHPRA letter [communication with Dr Alexandra Simpson] reference to “The practitioner states that a second assessment was completed on the 2 August 2002 by another practitioner” although false, as indicated by the relevant section on page 87 of the medical file ‘’Second Examination” being incomplete, as is page 85 “MUST BE completed by health services employee when assessment period starts”, does indicate that Dr Simpson is claiming that she had access to my medical files & Cairns Hospital staff after she, contrary to safeguards against abuses, authorised both the ‘recommendation for assessment’ & the and the ‘Involuntary Treatment Order’. Simpson, Dr Keith Muir [years later struck of the register to practice medicine] and others named in the medical file must have at the time of my being ‘detained’ at Cairns Base Hospital known that their actions were crimes [non-compliance with MHA 2000 requirement] and abuses of psychiatry.

Extraordinary rendition and detention without trial by abuses of Australian laws

Evidence of crimes of the crimes and human rights abuses are evident from secret medical records of the Australian public hospital system. Pages of Queensland Australia Cairns Base Hospital medical records obtained by a reluctant 2003 Freedom of Information release appear below. The files although  largely blackened out with Freedom of Information exemptions that attempt to conceal the identity of those committing crimes and the details of the crimes they have committed, still reveal unambiguous failures to comply with Queensland’s Mental Health Act 2000 [MHA 2000].

In order to prevent the abuse of the power of the medical profession to detain a person under Queensland’s MHA 2000 by alleging that they are suffering from a mental disorder that must involuntarily be treated, the MHA 2000 requires compliance with processes that are separated in order that no one person or people acting together can control each of those processes.  The processes of;

  1. the granting of a court order [Justice examination Order – JEO]upon application to the court requiring ample justification to do so,
  2. making the Recommendation for Assessment by an appropriately qualified medical doctor,
  3. The Assessment requiring the examination of a person by a doctor who is not the person who made the recommendation for assessment
  4. the authorising of the Involuntary Treatment Order [ITO] by a separate doctor not involved in previous processes and
  5. a second examination by an authorized doctor not involved in pervious processes to confirm the Involuntary Treatment Order

must be done separately by different people who cannot have a multiple level involvement in the processes that must be documented and transparent.

The laws of the MHA 2000 intended to prevent abuses of Psychiatry to threaten, intimidate and damage a person, are good laws. Their enforcement by Australian law enforcement authorities, who have claimed there have been “honest mistakes”, “departures from procedures for reason unknown”, refuse to acknowledge the evidence of crimes committed and then apologise for any inconvenience, with no further consequences for those who have failed to comply with the MHA 2000 processes [committed crimes] & can do so again, is a problem. The law enforcement authority obliged to enforce MHA 2000 laws is Queensland’s Director for Mental Health to whom public hospital mental health unit employees are answerable.  The administrative position of the Director for Mental Health is a qualified psychiatrist and in 2005 was Dr Aaron Groves RANZCP whose correspondence regarding non-compliance with the MHA 2000, appears below.

Medical malpractice within Australian public hospital systems and the ‘Bundaberg Hospital Commission of Inquiry’

Honest employees of Australian public hospitals cannot act on instances of medical malpractice they observe and report them, for fear of being targeted for harassment or discredited and having their employment terminated.

In Queensland during 2004 and 2005 revelations by a Queensland public hospital system employee, a nurse, became news worthy.

News media reported that a Queensland Bundaberg Hospital surgeon Dr Jayant Mukundray Patel [“appointed despite having no specialist surgical qualifications”] was refusing to wash his hands before performing surgery.  Some people died & others were permanently maimed.

Below – from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jayant_Patel

Wikipedia’s information on Queensland Dr Jayant Patel is consistent with that which was reported by Australian news media. Information posted to Wikipedia can be unreliable, false and misleading as is the case of that regarding the “unsolved” Adelaide SA NCA bombing murder of a policeman. Australian government websites [.gov.au] also have false information that is intended to deceive the public.

Dr Patel, with a history of “malpractice or wrongful death lawsuits” in Portland, Oregon USA [New York State health officials withdrew Patel’s license in 2001] is said to be “linked to at least 87 deaths among the 1,202 patients he treated between 2003 and early 2005. 30 patients died while under his care in Bundaberg.” “Nurses claimed that they hid their patients from him when they knew that he was in the hospital. He showed poor regard for hygiene. He attracted the nickname “Dr. Death”. It is alleged he altered medical records, including death certificates in order to hide his inadequacies.”

Under pressure to investigate the medical impropriety of Queensland’s public hospital system [government leader] Premier Peter Beattie established the ‘Bundaberg Hospital Commission of Inquiry’.

“In June 2010, Patel was convicted of three counts of manslaughter and one case of grievous bodily harm, and sentenced to seven years imprisonment. In August 2012, all convictions were quashed by the full bench of the High Court of Australia and a retrial was ordered due to ‘highly emotive and prejudicial evidence that was irrelevant to the case’ led before the jury. A retrial for one of the manslaughter counts resulted in acquittal and led to a plea deal where Patel pleaded guilty to fraud and the remaining charges were dropped. On 15 May 2015, he was barred from practicing medicine in Australia.”

Note: There is no such thing as a ‘plea deal’ [plea bargain] in Australian or UK law.

During 2004, evidence of crimes committed within the Queensland public hospital system in the form of abuses of Queensland’s Mental Health Act 2000 [MHA 2000] were brought to the attention of Queensland’s Crime and Misconduct Commission, the state Medical Board, the Director for Mental Health (enforcer of the MHA 2000 Dr Aaron Groves RANZCP), the dept. of Health and Health Minister Gordon Nuttall MP.  Crimes & corruption had been concealed by the Freedom of Information [FoI] exemptions of Cairns Base Hospital medical records that, despite files being blackened out with exemptions, still demonstrated crimes of failures to comply with the MHA 2000 and falsification [creative charting] of those records mostly purportedly written by person identified as a doctor [C C Brennan whom I’d never met] who had no state medical board registration or medical qualifications [FRANZCP as claimed medical file documents, provided to authorities, that have since been altered].

Correspondence from some of those authorities appear, posted below, with examples of FoI exemptions of medical files and other pages that are evidence of non-compliance with the MHA 2000.

The names of those involved in the process of imposing an Involuntary Treatment Order [ITO] at Cairns Base Hospital in 2002 have been blackened out as Freedom of Information [FoI] exemptions despite the fact that the MHA 2000 legislation process of meeting and examining me would have allowed me to have known their identity.    There has been no examination of me by any medical authority [qualified & state registered or otherwise] or any other person in Queensland at any time.

Correspondence of many years later through the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency [AHPRA an Australian federal authority established in 2009] revealed the names of those whose identities had been subject to Freedom of Information [FoI] exemptions. AHPRA correspondence dated 19 February 2014 referring to Dr Alexandra Simson refers to her claiming to be the medical practitioner who made both the “OE assessment” [recommendation for assessment] and “authorized you to be placed under an ITO” contrary to the requirements of the MHA 2000. I was when police arrived at my home introduced to a “Dr. Lisa Simpson”. I have never had a conversation with anyone by the name of Dr Simpson.

During 2005 issues of public hospital system abuses of Psychiatry were brought to the attention of the Royal Australian New Zealand College of Psychiatry [RANZCP – confirmed no qualifications of those named in medical files] and Queensland Premier Peter Beattie.

In 2005 Queensland Premier Peter Beattie referred the issues & evidence of crimes, corruption and abuses of Psychiatry within the Queensland public hospital system Cairns Base Hospital to the Bundaberg Hospital Commission of Inquiry. Letters from the office of Premier Beattie dated 17 June 2005 [referral to the Bundaberg Hospital Commission of Inquiry] and 9 November 2005 appear below. Wikipedia in 2015 refers to Premier Peter Beattie having taken on the ministerial portfolio as Queensland’s Minister for Health after Minister for Health Gordon Nuttall began to be investigated for crimes of corruption for which he was eventually convicted and jailed.

The Bundaberg Hospital Commission of Inquiry refused to investigate the issues I had raised & the evidence of impropriety and crimes presented [medical records & other] and refused to allow my communication with them.

ABC news media reporting 4 May 2005 ‘Second doctor implicated in Qld health crisis’ and 30 June 2005 ‘Psychiatrist receives six month practising ban’ referring to Dr Keith Muir, Head of the Mental Health Unit of Cairns Base Hospital in 2002, who is named in my Cairns Base Hospital medical files as the treating doctor [Involuntary Treatment Order], appears below. He had failed to inform the state medical board that he was in 1995 banned from practicing medicine in New York for ‘gross malpractice’ after it was discovered that he was using his patients for sex.

The ABC news media article quotes Premier Peter Beattie –

“He says there were no complaints about the psychiatrist during his time in Queensland, but the Health Commission of Inquiry can investigate the matter.      “This is why we set up the royal commission to have a look at these issues,” Mr Beattie said.

“The royal commission has within its inherent power the opportunity to look at any of these matters involving the operation of the medical board.”  “I imagine this is an issue they will look at. If they don’t look at this then we’ll look at that,” he added.”

and referring to the consequences for Dr Keith Muir, quotes the Queensland Medical Board “executive officer Jim O’ Dempsey says the six-month ban handed to Dr Muir should send a message to doctors that they cannot just move to another jurisdiction if they get into trouble.”

“Mr O’ Dempsey says the punishment would have been harsher but Dr Muir had completed an ethics course.   The board also took into account his 13 years of trouble-free practice in Queensland.”

Premier Beatties’s claim that “there were no complaints about the psychiatrist during his time in Queensland” and Queensland Medical Board executive officer Jim O’ Dempsey’s claim of Dr Keith Muir’s “13 years of trouble-free practice in Queensland” are false & known by the Queensland Medical Board’s Jim O’Dempsey to have been false at the time those claims were Made and published by the ABC.

Dr. Keith Muir is named in Queensland Medical Board correspondence signed by QMB CEO Jim O’ Dempsey dated 19 August 2005 referring to a complaint lodged in with the CMC in 2004, QH in 2004.

The letter from O’ Dempsey rewrites and misrepresents my complaint lodged but still confirms it was against Dr. Keith Muir & others and involves crimes/corruption of 2002 demonstrated in CBH medical files provided to the CMC, the QMB and others.

The crimes and corruption were known to Queensland Minister for Health Gordon Nuttall MP as indicated by his correspondence dated 19 July 2004 and 28 June 2005 written just prior to his resignation as Minister for Health and the beginning of his investigation by the CMC that led to corruption charges for which he was years later sentenced to jail.

Queensland Minister for Health Gordon Nuttall MP

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Nuttall

Wikipedia information on Gordon Nuttall is incomplete. He was employed by the State Bank of South Australia [SBSA Savings Bank of SA prior to 1984] for most of his working life before being briefly employed within SA’s Human Rights & Equal Opportunity Commission [HREOC] in 1992 to advise me that the SA HREOC had no interest in assisting me in resolving issues of my July 1991 sworn testimony [referring to details of SBSA “Off Balance Sheet” debt that became public debt still concealed] being erased from the records of the SA Workcover [Bates versus SBSA] proceedings in which I had given it.

ABC Internet news item http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/nation/former-queensland-minister-gordon-nuttall-loses-corruption-appeal/story-e6frg6nf-1226694049780 9 August 2013 ‘Former Queensland minister Gordon Nuttall loses corruption appeal’ includes a photograph of Gordon Nuttall. He is the same man employed by the State Bank of SA [Saving Bank SA prior to 1984] briefly employed by SA’s Human Rights & Equal Opportunity Commission [Nuttall advised me of SA HREOC refusing to assist regarding editing of my sworn testimony & other issues] before being the ALP endorsed candidate for the Queensland electorate of ‘Sandgate’ for the 1992 state election.

Wikipedia – “In July 2005, he resigned as Minister for Health following media exposure of problems at Bundaberg Base Hospital.”    “In August 2005, Nuttall stepped aside from the Ministry while the Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC) investigated claims he had given a false answer to a Parliamentary estimates committee regarding his prior knowledge of problems with overseas-trained doctors.”

“In 2006 the CMC also began an investigation into a series of loans Nuttall received from Queensland mining magnate Ken Talbot” for which he was eventually convicted of corruption offences and jailed.

Letters dated 19 July 2004 and 28 June 2005 that I received from Queensland Minister for Health Gordon Nuttall can be viewed below. Our correspondence related to the evidence of abuses of the Queensland Mental Health Act [MHA 2000], failures to comply with the laws intended to prevent Human Rights abuses and the efforts of the CMC [Crime and Misconduct Commission], the state medical board and Queensland dept. of Health to conceal crimes and corruption.

The letters from Gordon Nuttall refer to his knowledge of my lodging complaints with appropriate authorities [CMC, medical board, Director of Mental Health MHA 2000 law enforcer Dr Arron Groves RANZCP & other] of crimes committed and maladministration of Queensland Health. That these Queensland law enforcement authorities were provided with documented evidence from which they could easily see crimes committed [non-compliance with MHA 2000 – abuses of Psychiatry] after which they acted to further conceal the failures to enforce laws, was also brought to the attention of Queensland Premier Peter Beattie.

2005 correspondence from the office of Queensland Premier Peter Beattie

Letters dated 17 June 2005 and 9 November 2005 from the office of Peter Beattie appear on this website.  Peter Beattie was in 2005 aware of crimes committed within Queensland’s public hospital system [failures to comply with the requirements of the MHA2000] and the manner of them being concealed by Queensland Health [law enforcement of the MHA 2000 by MH Director Aaron Groves] the Crime & Misconduct Commission and Queensland’s Medical Board.

The letter dated 5 June 2005 advises that he has referred the evidence of Queensland public hospital Cairns Base Hospital [CBH] crimes/corruption to the Bundaberg Hospital Commission of Inquiry.  Premier Beattie’s unsigned correspondence of 9 November 2005 in response to the reply that the Bundaberg Hospital Commission of Inquiry has refused to acknowledge the documented evidence of crimes of CBH or allow my communication with them, advises that the issues I had raised had been referred to “Stephen Robinson MP, Minister for Health” for his consideration and direct reply to you”.   I received no reply from the Minister.

Second doctor implicated in Qld health crisis

Posted May 04, 2005 19:39:00

Loading…

Queensland’s doctor crisis has widened, with revelations that a psychiatrist practicing on the Sunshine Coast was was ‘struck off’ in the United States 10 years ago.

The State Government has confirmed that New Zealand-born Keith Muir has stood down while inquiries are made.

Dr Muir was registered to work in Queensland in 1992 after New York City health authorities issued a ‘certificate of good standing’. In 1995, he was cited for ‘gross malpractice’ by New York City medical authorities.

Premier Peter Beattie says the Queensland Medical Board was not alerted about the situation.

He says there were no complaints about the psychiatrist during his time in Queensland, but the Health Commission of Inquiry can investigate the matter.

“This is why we set up the royal commission to have a look at these issues,” Mr Beattie said.

“The royal commission has within its inherent power the opportunity to look at any of these matters involving the operation of the medical board.

“I imagine this is an issue they will look at. If they don’t look at this then we’ll look at that,” he added.

The head of the Health Commission of Inquiry, Tony Morris QC, says he will consider whether the inquiry, or another authority, should investigate the matter.

Mr Morris is already looking at issues relating to the Bundaberg hospital scandal.

State Opposition Leader Lawrence Springborg says the case has to be examined.

“It is very, very concerning and it does need to be properly investigated,” he said.

Psychiatrist receives six month practising ban

Posted June 30, 2005 19:45:00

Loading…

An overseas-trained psychiatrist based on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast has been banned from practising medicine for six months.

The Queensland Medical Board (QMB) imposed the ban because Dr Keith Muir failed to inform them he had been deregistered in the United States.

Dr Muir registered to practice in Queensland in 1992.

A year later he was banned from practising in New Jersey because he had sexual relationships with two psychiatric patients.

Dr Muir did not inform the Queensland Medical Board of the decision and continued practising in Cairns and on the Sunshine Coast.

Recent changes to the law, after the Bundaberg Hospital controversy, imposed a legal obligation on doctors to inform the board of any disciplinary action taken against them.

QMB executive officer Jim O’ Dempsey says the six-month ban handed to Dr Muir should send a message to doctors that they cannot just move to another jurisdiction if they get into trouble.

Mr O’ Dempsey says the punishment would have been harsher but Dr Muir had completed an ethics course.

The board also took into account his 13 years of trouble-free practice in Queensland.

Queensland’s Medical Board and Executive Officer Jim O’Dempsey

Correspondence from Queensland’s Medical Board and Executive Officer Jim O’Dempsey dated 30 June 2005 [a one page ref. to my complaint received by QMB 10 June 2005] and 13 Feb 2006 [3 pages] appear below. While misrepresenting my complaint and ignoring the obvious evidence of medical malpractice [failures to comply with the MHA 2000] the letters do make reference to the complaints relating to Dr Keith Muir’s impropriety [administration of Cairns B Hospital MHU] before in the 13 February 2006 letter advising that “it would not pursue investigation of my complaints”.

The news media reporting of the ABC 4 May 2004 http://www.abc.net.au/news/2005-05-04/second-doctor-implicated-in-qld-health-crisis/1563752 Second doctor implicated in Qld health crisis”  [referring to Dr Keith Muir] quoting Queensland Premier Peter Beattie    “He says there were no complaints about the psychiatrist during his time in Queensland, but the Health Commission of Inquiry can investigate the matter.”  was at that time known to Queensland authorities to be false.

Dr Keith Muir and others had been the subjects of the complaints related to events at Cairns Base Hospital in 2002 and had been with Queensland’s Crime and Misconduct Commission [CMC] since early 2004 when I provided my Queensland Cairns Base Hospital medical files to the CMC before travelling to the United Kingdom. [The CMC later made a FoI release of the files – stamped CMC FoI realease]. The CMC referred the evidence and issues of Queensland Health crimes & corruption to Queensland Health so they could investigate themselves.  Queensland Health’s earliest reference to any complaint from me is a letter dated 19 April 2004 from Queensland Health Audit and Operational Review stating that on preliminary inquiries done while refusing to my allow communication with them, found no evidence of impropriety and declined to investigate.  The CMC and Queensland Health had refused to refer the evidence [my medical files] to the Queensland Medical Board.

Royal Australian New Zealand College of Psychiatry RANZCP

Consumer Relations and Complaints Officer Allen White

As a result of my late 2005 and early 2006 telephone and email communication with the RANZCP Consumer Relations and Complaints Officer Allen White I was advised that Dr C C Brennan FRANZCP [named in my 2002 Cairns Base Hospital medical records as the MHU Psychiatric Registrar] did not exist.  A Dr Catriona Brennan is registered in South Australia as a doctor of Pathology as the only person registered by any Australia state medical board to practice medicine in Australia. I have never met anyone claiming to be named Dr. Brennan.    The RANZCP’s Allen White’s email dated 20 January 2006 confirming that Dr Brennan FRANZCP doesn’t exist, appears below. In a telephone conversation Allen White also advised me that Psychiatrist Dr Dan Siskind [no registration in any Australian state] also did not exist.  A document purportedly written by Atherton Hospital Psychiatric Registrar Dr Dan Siskind, signed by MH nurse Ellen Lowry exists within my Atherton hospital medical file. In the last conversation that I had with the RANZCP’s Allen White he seemed distressed that he “had been instructed to have no further communication with me”.

Royal Australian New Zealand College of Psychiatry RANZCP knowledge of medical malpractice

With Queensland’s Crime and Misconduct Commission [CMC], Queensland Health, state Medical Board and the Director for Mental Health [MHA 2000 law enforcer] all refusing to have any communication with me I contacted the Royal Australian New Zealand College of Psychiatry RANZCP with their motto ‘Health and Wellbeing through Truth and Understanding. I provided the RANZCP with information and documentation (my medical files indicating medical malpractice & crimes despite FoI exemptions concealing the identities of those involved) demonstrating abuses of Psychiatry. My communication was at first welcome & I was optimistic that the RANZCP representing honest & qualified Psychiatrists [Fellows RANZCP] would on behalf of their members act to expose impropriety of those falsely claiming to be qualified fellows RANZCP or acting in a manner that would bring the profession into disrepute. From my conversations with RANZCP Consumer Relations and Complaints Officer Allen White he was quite certain that he had been provided with evidence of extreme impropriety on which the RANZCP would act.

After receiving Consumer Relations and Complaints Officer Allen White’s email dated 20 January 2006 and speaking with him to ensure that was no misunderstanding I wrote to the Queensland Medical Board asking for details of where Drs C C Brennan and Dan Siskind [named in my medical files] earned their qualifications. I received a reply within a week stating that both received their RANZCP medical qualifications from the University of Queensland in 1998. I provided the RANZCP with pages of my medical records including a page signed by Dr C C Brennan marked as FRANZCP – but never received any acknowledgement or reply from the RANZCP.

Queensland Director for Mental Health Dr Aaron Groves RANZCP

Queensland’s Mental Health Act 2000 [MHA 2000] law enforcement is the responsibility of Queensland’s Director for Mental Health employed by the state’s ‘Queensland Health’ that administrates the state’s public hospital system. Correspondence from Queensland Director for Mental Health Dr Aaron Groves RANZCP dated 2005 and 2006 [Queensland Government letterhead] and 2014 [Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency letterhead] appears below.

Dr Groves letter dated 2 November 2005 refers to his obligation to “a process of natural justice and procedural fairness” during his investigation that he has “authorised” “under the Act in response to your allegations of non-compliance” with the MHA 2000.

Dr Grove’s letter dated 3 January 2006 refers to my “admission, assessment, examination, detention and treatment in the Cairns district in 2002” and “Logan Beaudesert District MH Service” in 2004. I have never had anything to do with “Logan Beaudesert District” at any time. The letter refers to my Cairns Hospital medical file but makes no reference to the FoI exemptions that conceal the identity of those making false statutory declarations in regard to processes that would have required that I meet and have at least one conversation with them.

Dr Groves’ letter refers to a false claim that I requested to be taken to Atherton Police Station. I was taken to a police station [not at my request] after being arrested when at my home presented with court documents by Queensland Health employees accompanied with a police officer. Dr Groves’ letter claims that a “clinical interview” “examination” that was taped was conducted at the police station.  Dr Groves states that this interview [that never occurred] was not compliant with the Act.

Dr Groves’ letter states that the December Mental Health Review Tribunal [MHRT revoking the ITO] “was conducted outside the legislated timeframes under the Act” making no reference to the MHA 2000 requirements or the failure to notify the MHRT of the imposition of an ITO other than to say I have “already received an apology from the service” & falsely claims that I have received correspondence “outlining” “the systems subsequently put in place to prevent a reoccurrence of such an event”.

Dr Grove’s letter states that “while non-compliance occurred this was an honest mistake” and “Finally, I conclude that the matters you have raised,” [? not acknowledged] “as well as the other matter that has been found to be non-compliant with the Act, did not occur either dishonestly or as a result of neglect.”

The MHA 2000 law enforcer Dr. Groves obviously knows that public hospital employees are aware of the requirements of the MHA 2000 and their obligations under the Act and that the FoI exemptions of my medical files concealing the identities of those involved with non-compliance [crimes] were further evidence that hospital administrators & MHU staff understood what evidence of crimes needed to be concealed.

Dr Groves [Director of Mental Health law enforcer of MHA 2000] ends his letter with “I would like to extend my regret to you that it has taken so long in concluding this matter. I know that you have expressed considerable frustration over the time involved and wish to extend an apology for the time it has taken and any further distress this might have caused.”

Dr Groves’ Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency correspondence dated 19 Feb. 2014

I have provided to all appropriate authorities pages of my FoI released medical records, including those pages with FoI exemptions concealing the identities of purported doctors I would have met if their claims in false declarations made  during the corrupted [not MHA 2000 compliant] processes to impose upon me an Involuntary Treatment Order, were accurate.

Neither the AHPRA or Dr Groves is prepared to acknowledge the impropriety of FoI exemptions concealing crimes under the MHA 2000 or the illegal [non-compliant] imposition of the ITO by Dr Simpson’s who claims to have authorised the ‘recommendation for assessment’ and the ‘Involuntary Treatment Order’.

Dr Groves’ does, according to AHPRA correspondence, in referring to investigations into crimes committed within Queensland (dept.) Health [non-compliance with the MHA 2000 enforcement of which the Director of Mental Health is responsible], states;

“he is unable to release the result of this investigation to AHPRA, however, he alludes that it identified some minor non-compliance with the Act which was addressed by the Health Service.”

Any law enforcement officer such as Dr Aaron Groves RANZCP Director of Mental Health who is responsible for enforcement of Queensland’s Mental Health Act [MHA 2000] who can ignore and evade clear evidence of crimes [non-compliance with the MHA 2000] and casually refer to other identified but hardly specified non-compliance as “some minor non-compliance with the Act” falsely stating that it “was addressed by the Health Service”, is not a fit and proper person to hold that administrative position of authority and public trust.

2006 extraordinary rendition [arrest – no charges or court appearances] & detained for 70 days

Released “conditional upon my not making any efforts to further my complaint against Cairns Base Hospital and Dr Keith Muir”

After my communications with the RANZCP Consumer Relations and Complaints Officer Allen White became known to Queensland’s Director for Mental Health [MHA 2000 law enforcer], the Queensland Medical Board & other authorities, I had a police officer and Queensland [dept.] Health employees attend my place of residence [never disclosed to any authorities], was arrested, transported to princess Alexandra Hospital and detained for 70 days. I was never given any opportunity to consult a Psychiatrist for ‘assessment’ during that time.  Dr. Keith Muir, named in my 2002 Cairns Hospital records, was by then implicated as a “Second doctor implicated in Qld health crisis” [ABC news reporting].

Being given no information regarding my being detained, I again lodged a freedom of Information application for the release of my medical records. No FoI release was ever made of my Princess Alexandra Hospital medical files.

It was a week before I could return to my place of residence [& return overdue library books] accompanied by the Princess Alexandra Mental Health Unit entertainment officer, an intelligent and perceptive young woman who had doubts about her job & was considering a change of employment. When we returned to my rented cabin [temporary residence in a caravan park] we discovered a window screen had been removed, a burglar had gained access and my portable television set and a bag of documents [of several kilograms] had been stolen. When arrested [no charges for any crime – or information provided] I, unaware of how long I would be away, brought one bag of documents with me and left another in my locked residence.

During the 70 days [May & June] I was being detained still with no consultation with any medical staff other than busy [& indifferent to me] MH nurses, I was injected with an unknown substance about every ten days.

On one occasion I was appointed a male nurse from a temporary employment agency to administer medication. When about to do so, he wandered off “to find a bigger needle” & within seconds a nurse [from my experience very good with injections] came past & I asked if she would administer the medication.  She asked “Where did the nurse appointed to me go?” I replied “To find a bigger needle.” She asked “Why?” I replied “because he’s an idiot trying his best to make a scene because either someone put him up to it or that’s how he gets his jollies, either way you shouldn’t have someone like that working in this place. I’d like you to report this to the head of nursing staff so there is a record of this event.” She said “I will” & injected me with the unidentified medication before she left.

With my still being denied access to any Medical doctors to assess me and authorise my ‘recommendation for assessment’ and ‘involuntary treatment order’ as required under the MH 2000, there was within six weeks [as required by the MHA 2000] a Mental Health Tribunal Review hearing at which no I had ever met before, case worker or doctors [treating physician] attended, but someone purportedly a doctor was in contact by telephone with the lawyer Chairman of the 3 person (lawyer, layperson & Psychiatrist) MHR Tribunal hearing. I explained that I had not met/consulted any physician while being involuntary detained for the past six weeks.   The MHRT confirmed the Involuntary Treatment Order.

Statement of Reasons Mental Health Review Tribunal 2006 confirms ITO

I requested information in writing from the Mental Health Review Tribunal [MHRT] that justifies their decision to confirm the Involuntary Treatment Order.  I received four pages of a document dated 5 June 2006 headed “Statement of Reasons” unsigned by author S. Currie Presiding Member who on the first page is named as Presiding Member Ms Susan Currie [designation] Legal.  Others named in the document r Li Chen – Psychiatrist [by telephone], Dr Shakantala Panja – Principal House Officer and George Suddiers – Registered Nurse, I have never met or seen before.

It is from this document that I discovered that I had been accused of threatening to kill the Director for Mental Health and having made verbal threats and threats by email. The threats [what I have allegedly said] are unspecified and it is conceded that the threatening emails have not been seen [or presented to the MHRT] but are assumed to exist.

Some but very little information about me is accurate but most is inaccurate & misrepresents me. A reference to my having family in Queensland is inaccurate & from an unidentified source.  Some weeks earlier a MH nurse pointed out a large Asian man to me & said that he was Dr. Chen Head of the Hospitals MH Unit.  The MHRT document refers to Dr Chen’s contact by phone [only heard by MHRT legal officer Currie] as “she” seemingly suggesting Dr Chen is a woman.

According to the MHRT document Dr Chen has stated [page 2] “He is currently on oral medication but given past non-compliance with medication he may need depot medication.” and under the heading of ‘Discussion of evidence’ “There is a fundamental disagreement between Mr Bates and his treatment team over whether his various complaints to various authorities contain threats and whether his complaints are symptoms of a delusional disorder”.     –   It was some time before I realized that the term ‘depot’ referred to injected medication. I was being injected with unidentified [to me] medication and was not “currently on oral medication”. If my medical files [more secret than ever with no FoI release or request acknowledged] claim any different they have been subjected to “creative charting”.

I have never met my “treatment team”. My not being provided with any information appears to be intended to create uncertainty and distress or perhaps intended to provoke a reaction that could be misrepresented in documentation.

After 70 days of being detained while being denied any information, I was summoned into an officer where two men in suits informed me that they were psychiatrists and “were prepared to authorise my release conditional upon my not making any efforts to further my complaint against Cairns Base Hospital and Dr Keith Muir.   I made no such commitment but did not indicate that I rejected their offer.

I was discharged that same day without any further consultation with any hospital staff.   There was no attempt to provide me with any medication for my alleged medical condition.     I left Queensland within a few days and returned to South Australia for one year.

Queensland’s Crime and Misconduct Commission

The evidence of medical malpractice, maladministration of Cairns Base Hospital and non-compliance with the MHA 2000 had, with my medical file [with FoI exemptions], been provided to Queensland’s Crime and Misconduct Commission [CMC] in 2004 after my failed attempts to have Queensland Health engage in reasonable communication with me. Queensland’s CMC referred the issues and evidence of crimes and impropriety to Queensland [dept.]Health so they could again investigate themselves, resulting in Queensland [dept.] Health writing a report exonerating itself & Cairns Base Hospital of any impropriety.

The Freedom of Information release of medical files not within time requirements

The documented evidence [my hospital medical files – & FoI exemptions] must be considered an indication of Cairns Base Hospital’s administrators and Queensland [dept.] Health’s knowledge of its maladministration and non-compliance with the MHA 2000.

The Freedom of Information application for the release of my hospital medical files was made on 5 August 2002 while I was detained [illegally] under the MHA 2000 and being given no information. Australian FoI laws require the release to be made within 3 months. A letter from Cairns Base Hospital FoI Decision-maker Linda Wilson dated 28 October 2002 apologises for a “breakdown in the process” suggesting incompetence of CBD administration or a deliberate reluctance to release files with evidence of hospital maladministration. The FoI release was not made until March 2003 8 months after the application for the FoI release of documents was made.

………………………………………..

Dr C C Brennan ‘Psychiatric Registrar’ Cairns Base Hospital Mental Health Unit

The Cairns Base Hospital failed to advise the Mental Health Review Tribunal [MHRT] that I had been subject to the imposition of an Involuntary Treatment Order so that the MHRT could schedule a review of the ITO within six weeks of being imposed as required by the MHA 2000. This Cairns Base Hospital maladministration was later said to be an administration error. My communications with the MHRT were ignored because they had no record of me within their files.  I was informed by case officer [ID FoI exempt applicant for the JEO also referred to in files as my ‘allied person’] Mental Health Nurse Ellen Lowry that “there would not be a six week MHRT review of the ITO because of a lack of resources”. All Queensland [Dept. of] Health staff that had any involvement with & access to my medical files [Cairns and later Atherton Hospitals in 2002 and later in 2006 Brisbane’s Princess Alexandra Hospital] and the Independent Mental Health Review Tribunal, knew of the medical malpractice abuses of psychiatry and the MHA 2000, and did nothing other than to participate in conspiring to conceal crimes known to them.

It was more than 5 months before a December 2002 MHRT immediately revoked the Involuntary Treatment Order.  The tribunal could easily see that unsigned as authorized documents presented to it had within them false and misleading information. The MHRT did nothing to rectify Queensland’s Health systematic corruption & non-compliance with the MHA 2000 that was years later described as “administration errors” and “communication errors”.

Correspondence from RANZCP Dr Murray Patton Dec. 2013 appears below.

RANZCP President Professor Malcolm Hopwood

RANZCP President Elect Dr Kym Jenkins

Correspondence with RANZCP Dr Murray Patton Dec. 2013

Correspondence with the AHPRA ref.  Corruption and abuses of Psychiatry Queensland

Prof. Hopwood & Dr Jenkins,

My name is Roger Bates. I am an Australian not at present living in Australia. I would like to direct your attention to issues of abuses of the Psychiatric profession that when in 2005 I first contacted the RANZP [RANZCP Consumer Relations & Complaints Office Allen.White@ranzcp.org] it was apparent that he was of the opinion that the information and documentation that I provided were such that the issues raised were considered of interest to the RANZCP that would act in the best interests of legitimately qualified Fellows RANZCP to protect the reputation of the profession and its high standards.     After disclosing relevant and useful information to me Allen White advised me that he had been “instructed to have no further communication with me”.

The issues that I had raised related to my experiences of corruption of the Psychiatric profession in Queensland, abuses of Psychiatry, the evidence of crimes with failures to comply with the requirements of the Queensland MHA 2000 and the efforts to conceal impropriety within the Queensland public hospital system.  My FoI released Queensland Cairns Base Hospital medical files provided clear evidence of abuses of psychiatry & non-compliance with the MHA 2000 legislation intended to prevent misuse/abuse of Psychiatry and Human Rights abuses.   I nearly died from medication [including SSRI Mirtazapine] imposed upon me.

My experiences of abuses of Psychiatry involve a Dr Keith Muir and others named in my medical records who are unknown to the RANZCP & had no state medical board registration.

My public hospital medical records, although largely blackened out with FoI exemptions to conceal the identity of those involved in impropriety [Crimes of non-compliance with MHA 2000] still disclose evidence of abuses of laws relating to the psychiatric professions’ authority to detain & indefinitely detain a person without trial. My hospital medical files were provided to Queensland’s Crime and Misconduct Commission [CMC – later retrieved as a FoI release, CMC –FoI stamped], other relevant Queensland authorities including MHA 200o law enforcer the Director for Mental Health,  and some pages provided to the RANZCP but never acknowledged as received.  Correspondence from Health Minister Gordon Nuttall [prior to his corruption convictions] and the Office of the Premier Peter Beattie indicate they were aware of the maladministration the files demonstrate.

In 2014 I received correspondence from RANZCP Dr Murray Patton referring me to the Australian Health Practitioners regulation Authority AHPRA. I was at the time attempting to have AHPRA reply to my correspondence.   AHPRA correspondence that I received identified individuals whose identity had been concealed by FoI exemptions of my medical files. The identification of those individuals revealed that they had multiple level involvements in authorization processes even though MHA 2000 procedural requirements specifically exclude the multiple level involvements that are indicated in the AHPRA correspondence.

Queensland law enforcement authorities [Director for Mental Health Dr Aaron Groves RANZCP MHA 2000 law enforcer] and other administrators including Dr Keith Muir, having had access to my medical files without FoI exemptions [identities concealed] were aware of the corruption, abuses of Psychiatry & crimes of non-compliance with the MHA 2000 many years before the disclosures made by the 2014 correspondence I received from AHPRA.

Fellows RANZCP conspired to conceal crimes and pervert the course of justice.  The instruction given to Allen White of the RANZCP to have no further communication with me would appear to have been intended to also assist to conceal the facts of the corruption of the medical profession, crimes committed and the maladministration of law enforcement authorities.

During my attempts in 2005 and 2006 to have the issues with the RANZCP acknowledged and resolved by Australian and Queensland law enforcement authorities [including Dr Groves RANZCP], Dr Groves sent me correspondence misrepresenting the facts demonstrated by the evidence of impropriety [my medical files], claimed that there were only minor breaches of procedures explained as “honest mistakes”, “departures from procedures for reasons unknown” and “administration errors” for which I have “received apologies from the service” & apologized for it having taken so long for these matters to be finalized, before closing the files.   Crimes and corruption that were known to MHA 2000 law enforcer Dr Groves RANZCP, that have since become apparent with 2014 AHPRA correspondence, have never been acknowledged by any Australian authority.

In 2006 when my communication with the RANZCP Allen White [& information he disclosed] became known to Queensland authorities, I was arrested and detained without trial [more abuse of the MHA 2000] for 70 days & finally released “conditional on my making no efforts to further my complaint against Dr Keith Muir and Cairns Base Hospital”.      I was not provided with any information, was denied access to medical professionals [for assessment & to authorize my being detained – as required by the MHA 2000] and my requested FoI release of my 2006 medical files was never made or acknowledged.  Although I have no 2006 FoI released medical files I do have a 2006 Mental Review Tribunal document with false and misleading information demonstrating medical profession impropriety and assuming the same information exists within my 2006 secret medical files, ‘creative charting’ within those [FoI ignored] files.

I note that since the RANZCP’s 2014 correspondence of RANZCP President Murray Patton [RANZCP ref. 3393] the RANZCP has arranged to cause email sent to ranzcp@ranzcp.org and other RANZCP email addresses to not be delivered. The RANZCP in 2014 never acknowledged my providing the documents that included from Dr Groves FRANZCP [with his apologies without acknowledging impropriety], the Minister for Health Gordon Nuttall, Premier Peter Beattie [his referral of the issues to the Bundaberg Hospital Commission of Inquiry] and my FoI released medical files with the blackened out FoI exemptions of the identities of medical practitioners I must have met if their Statutory declarations with claims of examinations [assessments] of me, required for their authorizing my being detained [Involuntarily Treated under the MHA 2000 ITO], were true.

Purported medical professionals FRANZCP whom I have never met have made false statutory declarations and had their identities concealed by FoI exemptions to my medical files in order to conceal the crimes that they had committed. Fellow RANZCP Dr Aaron Groves Director for Mental Health with responsibility for enforcing the MHA 2000 was well aware of these facts when he made his reply to AHPRA that resulted in the AHPRA letter dated 19 February 2014 sent to me in which no reference is made to the obvious facts of FoI exemption of my medical file and their purpose.

You, RANZCP Presidents Professor Malcolm Hopwood and Dr Kym Jenkins [presumably both Fellows RANZCP] are invited to comment on the honesty and integrity of the Australian Psychiatric profession and its membership Fellows and reply to me at the email address from which email sent to all ranzcp.org email addresses is now undeliverable.

With my email correspondence to the RANZCP undeliverable, I sent you [the RANZCP] a fax in November 2013 and postal mail shortly after. I have never received ant reply or acknowledgement.

Your RANZCP arranging of refusing to accept my email correspondence for delivery must be considered a refusal of my request for your assistance in encouraging others to reply and act with honesty and integrity expected of the medical profession, some of whom are Fellows RANZCP in administrative positions of authority and public trust [e.g. Queensland’s Director for Mental Health enforcer of the MHA 2000 laws] that requires that they acknowledge the facts demonstrated by the evidence regarding impropriety [now posted to WordPress] that relates to their work.

I request that you, RANZCP Prof. Hopwood & Dr Jenkins, acknowledge the facts of the corruption of Australian Psychiatry involving Fellows of the RANZCP and on behalf of Australian Psychiatrists [your RANZCP membership fellows RANZCP], most of whom I expect are honest men and women who would find the corruption of their profession objectionable [& reasonably expect that you should act on their behalf], and demonstrate your commitment to the RANZCP motto Latin: Ex veritate salus  “Out of truth [or understanding] comes health [or wellbeing]” which is, considering the evidence of crimes of deceit by Australian Psychiatry, looking doubtful.

There has never been any indication by any authority that the secrecy of medical files is inappropriate. That secret Freedom of Information exempt medical files may assist in ‘creative charting’, prevent transparency of processes and conceal medical profession abuses, crimes, corruption & non-compliance with laws regulating the authority of Psychiatry, is obvious.

I again invite you to view the documents posted below that should assist you to understand the issues to which I have referred. Your questions the answers to which will allow your appropriate understanding of the issues are very welcome.

I expect that you RANZCP Prof. Hopwood & Dr Jenkins understand that both I and RANZCP Consumer Relations and Complaints Officer Allen (2005 – 2006) were correct in our understanding that the Presidents of the RANZCP have an obligation to its legitimately qualified members Fellows RANZCP to act on their behalf against those whose activities bring the Psychiatric profession into disrepute, whether they be FRANZCP or with no medical qualifications fraudulently claiming to be qualified as psychiatrists, or law enforcement authorities such as corrupt state medical board administrators who are aware of medical malpractice & employees of Queensland’s  public hospitals employed without required medical qualifications.

Yours Sincerely,

III states, referring to the previous Director for Mental Health’s determination that there were ‘insufficient evidence to suggest that an investigation, into whether the [Act] had been breached, should be undertaken’ after which “new concerns” (undetected by QH?) were brought “to his attention and an investigation was instigated. The practitioner [Dr Groves] that he is unable to release the results of this investigation to AHPRA, however, he alludes that it identified some minor non-compliance with the Act which was addressed by the Health Service.”

The AHPRA Dr Groves response Page 2 v. C referring to 2006 [after my communication with the RANZCP] states “that he was informed that you were admitted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) mental health unit in 2006 where [you] became hostile and verbally abusive and made comments I relation to me, staff had formed the view that that my personal safety may be at risk.”  The unspecified claims are false & no evidence such as the purported email threats are referred to.

Dr Keith Muir – There is no indication received any response from Dr. Muir or attempted to do so.

Dr. Groves correspondence and AHPRA correspondence avoids any reference to Dr Keith Muir with his acknowledged history of medical impropriety for which he had been temporarily struck off the states medical register. AHPRA appears not to have made any attempt to seek a response from Dr Keith Muir although he is referred to in my medical files provided as my 2002 “treating doctor” (pg 33) and consultant (pg 1) to Medical registrar Dr C C Brennan.

25. AHPRA Brennan 19 Feb 2014      A 2 page letter dated 19 February 2014 to me from AHPRA purportedly the reply of Dr Catriona Brennan to AHPRA.   I have never met anyone named Dr. Brennan who in her purported reply to AHPRA does not indicate if she has or has not ever met me. Notes said to be made and signed by Dr Brennan within my 2002 Cairns Hospital medical file purportedly quoting conversation had with me, indicate that Dr Brennan has claimed to have met me.     The AHPRA letter states on page 1. b. i. B “she was working as a registered medical practitioner as an unaccredited Psychiatric House Officer under the supervision of consultant psychiatrists. This was for a three month rotation during her registrar year. The practitioner states that “this position did not require that the House Officer was a Fellow of the College of Psychiatry or that the doctor was participating in training for such a qualification.”

Queensland Medical Board correspondence of 20 July 2005 states that “There is currently no Medical Practitioner known by the name of Dr C C Brennan registered in Queensland. The QMB medical registration files are (& were in 2005) available for viewing on the Internet.  Prior to receiving this letter I saw that no Dr C C Brennan [& Dr Dan Siskind] were registered and the QMB administration in a telephone conversation confirmed that no Dr C C Brennan had ever been registered in Queensland.

After telephone communication & email received 20 Jan 2006 from RANZCP Consumer Relations and Complaints Officer Allen White confirming that Dr C C Brennan FRANZCP did not exist, I wrote to the Queensland Medical Board asking where Siskind and Brennan received their medical qualifications and received a reply within a week claiming that both became qualified psychiatrists FRANZCP certification in 1998 from the University of Queensland.   The letter has with many other documents been stolen.  I had provided a FoI medical page signed by Dr C C Brennan ‘Pychiatric Registrar’ the letters FRANZCP after the signature, to the QMB, RANZCP, CMC & others.  The file page has since been replaced with a page without the letters RANZCP appearing after the signature.

26. AHPRA Stephenson 19 Feb 2014   A 2 page letter dated 19 February 2014 to me from AHPRA purportedly the reply of Dr Catriona Brennan to AHPRA.   I have never met anyone named Dr. Brennan who in her purported reply to AHPRA does not indicate if she has or has not ever met me. Notes said to be made and signed by Dr Brennan within my 2002 Cairns Hospital medical file purportedly quoting conversation had with me, indicate that Dr Brennan has claimed to have met me.     The AHPRA letter states on page 1. b. i.

27. RANZCP Dr Patton 2 Dec 2013       RANZCP Dr Patton 2 Dec 2013 – A letter from the President of the Royal Australian New Zealand College of Psychiatrists RANZCP after the RANZCP had been provided with documents referring to the corruption of Australian psychiatry by Fellows of the RANZCP & others [named in my medical files provided] whom have falsely claimed to have medical specialist Psychiatry qualifications. RANZCP President Murray Patton has refused to acknowledge receiving documented evidence of impropriety of psychiatrists Fellows RANZCP and others falsely claiming to have specialist medical qualifications. RANZCP President Murray Patton has referred me to AHPRA and has since been provided with the evidence of AHPRA evasions in responses to impropriety of medical professionals.

The RANZCP method of dealing with the issues on behalf of its legitimately qualified members Fellows RANZCP [after the 2006 instructions to complaint officer Allen White to “have no further communication with me] has been to arrange to prevent email sent by me to ranzcp@ranzcp.org and all other RANZCP email addresses not to be delivered.   Communication by fax and post receives no acknowledgement from the RANZCP.

2015 RANZCP President Professor Malcolm Hopwood and RANZCP President Elect Dr Kym Jenkins have had their attention directed to the information and documentation within this blog and the letter to them that appears above that could not be delivered to them through any ranzcp.org email address.

Appearing below :

A 2 page letter from the Queensland Mental Health Review Tribunal President Frank Clair in which he acknowledges the failure to comply with the MHA 2000 requirement of a review within six weeks of the imposition of an Involuntary Treatment Order, states that the MHRT was not notified of the imposition of the July Involuntary Treatment Order until 22 October 2002 six weeks after which the review hearing revoked the ITO on 2 December 2002.

He suggests that the non-compliance with the MHA 2000 requirements   because “Your hearing may not have been able to have been heard any earlier because of the volume of matters needed to be heard in Cairns.”  President Frank Clair of the Queensland Mental Health Review Tribunal offers no explanation of why the 2 December 2002 MHRT members didn’t notice the MHA 2000 non-compliance [a crime – failure to review the ITO within six weeks – contact me to explain & apologise] or couldn’t be bothered to report it the MHA 2000 law enforcer [Director for Mental Health] so he could be aware of the issues & improve the “communication issue” “administration error” before he [Dr Aaron Groves] finally apologized to me for what he describes as a minor issue of non-compliance with other criminal acts still unacknowledged by him.

 

Appearing below – A 4 page unsigned document provided by the Queensland Mental Health Review Tribunal headed    Statement of Reasons Mental Health Review Tribunal 2006 confirms ITO

A ‘Statement of Reasons’ of 4 pages dated 5 June 2006 provided by the Queensland Mental Health Review Tribunal referring to a 22 May 2002 MHRT tribunal hearing confirming an Involuntary Treatment Order ITO authorised at an unknown date [within the previous few weeks] by an unidentified “authorised person” I have never met. I had never met any of the people at the hearing or the “treatment team” referred to whom I purportedly, according to the document, disagree with.  The ‘Statement of Reasons’ claims that I have been accused of the crime of threatening someone and that evidence of the alleged crime is assumed to exist but has not been seen by the author of the document.   The document makes false claims of what I had said to the tribunal. That it misrepresents some of my past experiences that did occur indicates some knowledge of real events [information not provided by me] concerning which the misrepresentations are made.         The document on page 2 states “He is currently on oral medication but given past non-compliance with medication may need depot medication.”  I was not “on oral medication” [not identified in the document] but was receiving injections of an unidentified medication. If my PAH medical records are consistent with this false information then they are inaccurate & have been subject to ‘creative charting’.

I was eventually released after 70 days detained “conditional upon my not making any efforts to further my complaint against Cairns Base Hospital and Dr Keith Muir.”             I left Queensland within a few days.

Appearing below : A letter dated December 2000 [an error the date should be 2001] from Queensland’s Atherton Hospital requesting  the return of medical files that were not mine but provided to me after a Freedom of Information request for my own medical files.

34. R Phillip Bates Atherton FoI Dec 2001

Appearing below : A letter dated 31 July 2012 that I received from Australia’s Medicare in reply to request for a record of payments made for my treatment by Australian doctors.  Medical treatment at Australian public hospitals is paid for by the person seeking treatment, by that persons medical insurance company or by Australia’s Medicare system financed by a 1% levy on Australian citizen’s income. Records of Medicare payments for my 7 years of consultations with Adelaide Psychiatrist Dr Howard Gorton FRANZCP and for my purported 2002 involuntary treatment [examinations that did not occur]at Cairns Base Hospital & Atherton Hospital and 2006 involuntary treatment, examinations & assessment at Princess Alexandra Hospital by doctors I never met are only available “for exceptional circumstances, to assist police with historical investigations or where it is necessary for court proceedings.”

35. Medicare letter 31 July 2012

Appearing below : A letter dated 20 April 2005 from Adelaide Psychiatrist Dr Alan Frazer RANZCP in reply to my correspondence after my 2004 return from London & discovery that British Libraries UK London Colindale have fake ‘archives’ of Australian newspapers [State Bank of SA bankruptcy reporting news articles having been erased from the records] and Australian state & national public libraries sell the same fake ‘archives’ of newspapers published.   I was surprised that the Medical Board of South gave me Dr. Frazer’s home address to hand delivery my letter.  I apologised for the intrusion to Dr Fraser when I delivered the letter.  His reference to Dr Gorton relates to the referral Dr Frazer made for me to consult Dr Gorton from mid-1989 to the end of 1996. It appears that Dr Frazer’s memory could not be assisted by his clinical notes of my consultations with him.   I now understand that I should have insisted on receiving a receipt for the SBSA letterhead document I gave to him in 1989 that referred to the $200 million loan made by SBSA to Equiticorp NZ that was front page headline news “State Bank $200 mill. Loan to Equiticorp NZ” in Adelaide’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper [now erased from records of newspapers published] just before my employment with SBSA was terminated on 29 June 1989.

This blog post using my own Internet connection has been made difficult by many cuts to the connection & what appears to possibly be a continued remote access by a hacker.   A previous experience of being hacked appears in part at https://rjrbtsrupertsfirstnewspaper.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/toshiba-untrustworthy/      The information within this blog post may need to be improved at a future date.
