Letter 2 to Solicitor



Dear Sir/madam

I have a problem and I am drafting this myself since this is the demand of the situation.  I don’t want to blow my chances of representation by omitting a detail or not including enough.  I have been in touch with Foot Anstey (Helen Horne) who put me in touch with you.

First, a synopsis of the current situation I which I find myself:

I have a problem and the best way I can phrase it is with a picture. I am “mentally unwell” and therefore require assistance. BUT every time I ask I get directed to do things like a “normal” person. There are no ramps for the disabled in Mental Health, whether to access for legal defence or asking for one’s own medical notes which can amount to boxes of paper. The physical logistics of the ease with which they dispel all rumours of deceit is through the impregnable paperwork involved in un-ravelling a case and it is impossible to gather them, equally, cos they become scattered all over the country due to “lack of beds” BUT and I know that this is true from experience, the only way one can bear the stress of being transported away from home, all over the country, is by being well. There are no ramps for assisting the disabled and only advocacy services are farmed out to the higher bidder in a tendering process so one is left in the hands of the inexperienced or untrained, particularly in preceeding Acts of Parliament because the services lack the age and file storage space, presumably. I hope you understand this because i think it is a very important point. No Legal Aid and obstructionist tactics to complainants, instead of assisted investigations as per our disability.

In other words, there are no ramps for the Mentally “Disabled” and I hope that you take this into account.  Thank you.


Let me proceed by presenting you with the letter I sent to Foot and Anstey:

Dear Ms

Thank you for your time and attention in this matter.  I have prepared a summary for you that is below.  I hope that it is possible for you to help me in pursuit of my Rights as an individual and to make it impossible for my determination to be awarded my Ph.D. un-thwarted by the Health Authorities while I see recompense from the University of Bath for the unjust manner in which they have treated me.

I see it as a pyramidal complaint, with the first issue (1) being the issue of my being awarded my Ph.D. for research I conducted in 2002-5 and again in 2015.

     This is about to be heard by the University Disability Officer and my Advocate Mr Nick Blencowe.  I request that you assist in this matter so that I can be well represented.  We can discuss this further if you do not mind – the turn of events has been most unusual and that means it has been a well-worthwhile wait to be published in a peer reviewed journal as I have been, with the first paper to be published on the subject of “Microdesign” and I want to continue my work which has been thwarted by the un-award of my degree and the lack of opportunity to pursue it due to an unfair (in my view) referee at the University of Bath, for a decade.

     I have been treated unfairly, as if I have been unjustly complaining when I haven’t and that has been the result of being too enjoying my treatment at the hands of the Mental Health Authority.  In other words I have too much time on my hands because I am unemployed due to the University in part and due to being disabled on the other and that has led me to e-mail the University incessantly hoping for a break.

     It arrived when I mailed my hospital notes to the Department using a mass e-mailing address and that meant a democratic process seems to have been put in place since the professor in the case of slandering me, gave forth a rebuttal, saying he had not said what had appeared in my notes leading to such harsh treatment at the hands of the authorities, including two months in a secure unit, on the Cherries Ward at the RUH.  This was the very first and only response  received from the University and I have received no more, not even a fair explanation of how his, the Professor’s, name happened to be in my notes in the first place when it is known to be an unfair practise.

     This I have not acted upon yet but I wish to complain to the RUH about it and I require advice.  This is (2).

     (3) Then I would like to speak with you of the effect of the slander in my notes and the possibility of being stigmatized and therefore being unfairly detained over and over again, six times in fact, all due to an insane diagnosis at the time, and prognosis since schizophrenia is for life.

     It was due in fact to the trauma of being assaulted in 2002, just before the troubles began.

     I would like to hear from your office in the instant of reading this but I understand the pressures of your business so I know it is not possible.  But I need to speak with someone soon.  Please can you direct this to the appropriate solicitor that I might consult with them?



The above was sent to a “plain” Mental Health solicitor and it was refused as being outside of the normal remit of a Mental Health solicitor. As I say, I have not had a ramp to give me access to Legal representation nor to ease the load of gathering all my medical notes from across the country etc.

Helen Horne suggested the first requirement was another opinion from a doctor.  The BANES recovery Unit does not have a psychiatrist available for this purpose since they have all been involved in my case in the past.  This has been a problem too.

Please can you advise me if you can give assistance in this matter?  I really hope so.
