NHS Mental Healthcare Doesn’t Exist

 

I found a video on YouTube about someone’s experience with the UK mental health system during bereavement and other issues.

I can more than underline his experience. People in the U.S. or Germany don’t believe me how IMPOSSIBLE it is to find help. My own odyssey through the mental health system I don’t want to list anymore like I did before as I feel like a failure and have even been “victim blamed” by a Psychologist last year.

With the Covid-19 pandemic, thousands of bereaved and traumatized families and medical workers, this will get even worse!

I don’t want to say too much, just let this video share:

 

 

Just a few articles on the Government cuts since 10 years:

From The Independent:
>>> Mental health trusts left with less funding than 2012 due to government cuts

From The Guardian:
>>> Number of NHS beds for mental health patients slumps by 30%

From Keep Our NHS Public:
>>> Austerity and NHS cuts: wrecking our mental health

 

NHS cuts

 


 

I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
An incomplete list on what other Pret staff say about Pret’s bullying environment:
Caught in the Act Bullying at Pret.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by
The Adam Paradox, and wrote two articles in the Scottish Left Review.
Thank you for reading/listening.

Do you hear the Medics sing? #NHS

 

Do you hear the Medics sing?
Singing the songs of years of pain?

It’s the song of a profession
who’ve been screwed and screwed again

Though we’ve got no PPE
and some of us may succumb

We’re the ones who go to work
when Corona comes

We haven’t had a pay rise since 1953
and they screwed up all our pensions
and then taxed us to our knees

They made all the Juniors sign up
for working for free

Do you hear the Medics sing?
Singing the songs of years of pain?
It’s the sound of a Profession
who’s been screwed and screwed again

Though we’ve got no PPE
and some of us may succumb
we’re the ones who go to work
when Corona comes

The traitors from the CQC
have crawled back to the pit
Your GMC re-registered
but it’s years since you quit

It turns out appraisals
is really a pile of shit

Do you hear the Medics sing?
Singing the songs of years of pain?
It’s the sound of a Profession
who’s been screwed and screwed again

Though we’ve got no PPE
and some of us may succumb
we’re the ones who go to work
when Corona comes

1. Plea to NHS staff & all who receive freebies & donations from Pret!

Know what Pret tried to do to their OWN staff by cutting pay while distracting from it with freebies to NHS staff & others. Pret reverted for now after a public outcry and bad press!

2. Pret opened kitchen again during furlough to continue their PR stunt giving to NHS workers and homeless people, having staff work in kitchens. Pret also does this to have staff ready in place when the government gives the green light for businesses to open.
