Misconduct in Public Office

3030 cases of Misconduct in Public Office have now been submitted to the Met Police by the PHSO Pressure Group.    

2nd January 2017 Update

The Met Police closed all submitted cases in July 2016 stating that section 15 of the Health Commissioner Act and section 11 of the Parliamentary Commissioner Act prevent the Ombudsman from releasing documents or evidence used as part of an investigation and consequently they were unable to pursue any enquiries.  This ‘privacy’ rule effectively places the Ombudsman staff above the law.  It will be no surprise to learn that an Ombudsman has never been held to account using the law of misconduct in public office.  In October 2016 we had a meeting with the Met Police and put forward our objections to their interpretation of the law.  Met Meeting Notes  Most notable was the ruling that once the investigation is complete the privacy rule falls away.  The Met Police then sought further legal advice and we have yet to hear the outcome.

In the meantime, the Law Commission have released their proposals for reform of the law on misconduct in public office.  You can read the full 224 page document here. Law Commission Consultation  It would appear that rather than make it easier for the public to use this law for protection against the abuse of power, the proposals, which include providing proof and determining that actions were ‘seriously improper’ before an investigation can commence, will make it far more difficult.  You can see our submission to the public consultation here.  PHSO Pressure Group submission to the Law Commission and an additional submission which makes it clear that it is the Law Commission’s responsibility to ensure that the law protects the public. Submission to the Law Commission by Daphne Havercroft.

We will continue to push the Met Police for a response and for full investigation into the many reported incidents of abuse of power carried out at PHSO.  It is clear that this body, the final arbiter for complainants has been made ‘watertight’ by the establishment it serves.  Further updates as and when available.

 The legal case against PHSO:

Allegation to the MET of misconduct in Public Office in relation to

The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman

In this year celebrating the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, we, the undersigned, request a meeting with you to present a dossier of evidence supporting the Allegation set out below that the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (“Ombudsman”), namely Dame Julie Mellor and her predecessor, Ann Abraham, have or may have committed the Common Law offence of Misconduct in a Public Office as a result of the respective holders of the Office acting, or omitting to act, in a way contrary to their duty and contrary to the Nolan Principles.

We have carefully considered the Authorities and understand the key elements of the offence to be:

A public officer acting as such
Wilfully neglects to perform his duty and/or wilfully misconducts himself
To such a degree as to amount to an abuse of the public’s trust in the office holder
Without reasonable excuse or justification

As a Crown appointment we are fully aware of the seriousness of the Allegation and the political sensitivities and ramifications attaching thereto.

In advice given by David Lock QC regarding holding the Ombudsman to account under the law, he quotes Mrs Justice Andrews DBE who presided over the case of R (on the application of Rapp) v The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman & Anor [2015].   Given the discretion of the Ombudsman enshrined in the 1967 act Andrews concluded that;

“It is for the Ombudsman to decide and explain what standard he or she is going to apply in determining whether there was maladministration, whether there was a failure to adhere to that standard, and what the consequences are; that standard will not be interfered with by a court unless it reflects an unreasonable approach. However the court will interfere if the Ombudsman fails to apply the standard that they say they are applying;”

In 2009 the Ombudsman introduced the ‘Principles of Good Administration/Complaint Handling’ as a guide for public bodies and a means of monitoring its own service.  They are the standards formally adopted by PHSO and confirmed by advocacy groups.

http://www.ombudsman.org.uk/improving-public-service/ombudsmansprinciples/principles-of-good-complaint-handling-full

“These Principles are not a checklist to be applied mechanically.  Public bodies should use their judgment in applying the Principles to produce reasonable, fair and proportionate results in all the circumstances of the case.  The Ombudsman will adopt a similar approach when considering the standard of complaint handling by public bodies in her jurisdiction.”

It would therefore be logical for a court to hold the Ombudsman to account by the standards they have set themselves, namely the 6 principles of good complaint handling.  Our evidence demonstrates widespread breaches in the appointed principles which are repeated and systemic leading us to conclude that these actions have been taken wilfully by members of PHSO staff in lieu of the Ombudsman in order to unfairly close down valid cases and avoid holding public bodies to account.  These actions are in breach of Article 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998 and cause significant harm to the public.

We are therefore submitting evidence which demonstrates that Ombudsman personnel, acting as public officers, have wilfully neglected to perform their duty to apply the principles of good administration to such a degree as to amount to an abuse of the public’s trust in the office holders, without reasonable excuse or justification.   This is a criminal offence and our evidence demonstrates that the decisions made are ‘irrational’ when measured against the principles of good complaint handling.   As with other criminal charges, if ultimately brought by the CPS, it will be for the judge to decide whether there is evidence capable of establishing guilt of the offence and, if so, for the jury to decide whether the offence is proved.

Our evidence represents that from a group of citizens who have come together to form the PHSO Pressure Group, as we have all been failed by all those in authority to date.  Our evidence is complimented and reinforced by that contained in the Patient’s Association Report, ‘The people’s Ombudsman – How it failed us’ released in November 2014  PHSO-The-Peoples-Ombudsman-How-it-Failed-us  and ‘PHSO, Labyrinth of Bureaucracy released in March 2015.  PHSO-Labyrinth-of-Bureaucracy

There is also significant supporting evidence collected by PASC as part of its recent inquiry into the setting up of an independent clinical investigation body.  PASC inquiry written evidence

MRS M HAYES AND I HAVE BEEN TOLD IT WAS PASSED OVER TO PARLIAMENT THAT Y MY NAME WAS ALL OVER PARLIAMENT AND ITS ALL BEEN RECORDED THEY CAN’T GET OUT OF THIS NOW GOOD WORK

    • They have committed every dirty trick in the book including signing a fraudulent medical malpractice maladministration.despite the fact I won a judicial review I was at the meeting on 25 11 2013 so keep up the
      good work I WILL NEVER GIVE UP MY fight for justice xxxx
      .

  2. You are spot on about the true agenda of the PHSO being to protect institutions. There must be 50 ways to dispose of a complaint (as Simon and Garfunkel didn’t quite say):

    ‘Local resolution not fit for purpose’, Maurice;
    ‘Not properly made’, Jade;
    ‘No MP referral’, Cyril;
    ‘Three year rule’, Rahoul;
    ‘Complainant failed to respond’, John;
    ‘What more can we reasonably achieve’, Eve?;
    ‘Out of time,’ Caroline.

        • Dear Christine – well done for getting this far. The road to justice is a long and rocky one and those in power hope that we will all fall by the wayside. The meeting you refer to was the starting point for us. PASC called us together to hear our evidence as part of their inquiry into PHSO. From a handful of people we are now a strong and active pressure group calling for total reform of the Ombudsman service. The inquiry by PASC eventually led to the creation of a new Independent Patient Safety Investigation Service (IPSIS) and you may be interested to read the PASC report here: http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201415/cmselect/cmpubadm/886/886.pdf This report is scathing of the service delivered by PHSO and calls for a programme of internal reform to be published (still waiting for that). The genie is out of the bottle Christine. No-one at PASC is under any illusion that the Ombudsman is effectively serving the people. As part of our campaign we presented our historic cases to PHSO for review. Not all were accepted and those that were have gradually been closed down without remedy and the same mangling of the evidence as before. This body is incapable of admitting its own mistakes and putting right their failures as we have seen with the long running battle James Titcombe has had with DJM over his flawed report. Consequently we have now placed 17 cases of Misconduct in Public Office with the Met Police and they are being handled by a Special Enquiry Team at Scotland Yard. PHSO repeatedly breach their own guidelines and their inability to deliver justice to the people is a criminal act. As with any police investigation the more evidence the stronger the case, so we are calling on others (many thousands) who have been similarly affected to come forward – complete a simple pro-forma and submit their case to the Met Police Special Enquiry Team. Together we are louder and together we will be heard.

  3. Im in a similar position with IPCC Wales, whereby their investigator, complicity and corruptly directed a swpolice investigation of me…and even when told of the refusals to adhere to his directives, still did nothing at all about it.
    The slimy chap even came to the trial for the duration, probably wondering when his world was gonna fall round his feet…
    Tick Tock, James…tick tock.

    Good luck Della & all…
    If there’s anything I can do to help, let me know.

  4. Good work. My PHSO complaint from 2013 involves my son who is extremely mentally ill since 1999 with Schizoaffective Disorder, without his medication he is unable to tell reality from imagination but nonetheless stole a car whilst not on medication due to the lack of follow up from the local medical authority. For this he was arrested and taken off section by his doctor and instead of being sent back to hospital, he was sent to prison and put into an isolated cell for a total of eighteen months with no medication for his illness, no clothes, hardly any food, slept on the floor and no exercise, he dirtied his cell to which he received another month and aggressed a prison guard and received another six months, all this with the knowledge and decision of the NHS medical staff in the prison. The family were never informed and neither a lawyer. When my son left prison he was sent to a care home for the mentally ill, he left prison to thin to wear his clothes and his teeth coming out from lack of nourishment……..I made a complaint against the NHS prison medical team for negligence…… the PHSO coudn’t find any fault with his treatment and won’t allow me to contest their decision in the face of all the evidence i have. My son had the same doctor before, during and after prison, in the two years leading up to my sons arrestation and the report sending him to prison the doctor had only seen him once, he didn’t know him and had wrongly diagnosed him. The reason why i am writing this here is because the only service which actually tried to help and who were sincerly concerned when he left prison were the police…..my son is now back on his medication and is back in hospital under a different doctor.

    • What an awful experience for you and your son, and then no justice at the end. PHSO deny the most damning evidence in order to protect public bodies. The system is corrupt by design. Please join us and submit a complaint to the Met Police of Misconduct in Public Office.

  5. …yes my son left prison he was physically and mentally unrecognizable to all those that knew him before, the doctor in charge refused to go and see him…the PHSO have skimmed over the whole affair, no enquiry was really made and now they refuse to accept my complaint against them for not having made a real investigation. The PHSO are saying that my son was in charge of the prison which is blatantly untrue as i have spoken to the prison governess who stated clearly that he was in the charge of the prison medical team who were using the segregation unit as an overspill from the prison medical and assessment unit due to lack of space, i have also sent the complaint to the PPO who have also stated that the prison is not responsible and had wanted to transfer my son out to hospital but had no power to do so as the NHS staff controlled the situation and there was friction between the two services not only to do with my son but other prisoners who were clearly mentally ill and should of been in hospital. It seemed from discussions i have had with NHS staff directly involved but due to their position are unable to speak out that the problem is the lack of suitable hospital space and that prison is the only alternative left……my son has paid for this and now the PHSO are refusing to hold an in depth enquiry…this has to be a criminal offence not to investigate properly. Eighteen months in solitary confinement in a prison for someone mentally ill and previously on section having already passed through countless hospitals and clinics is without doubt a crime, we

    • So PHSO passed the buck and said it was nothing to do with the NHS. This is a trick they use quite often. If a single aspect of your case could be considered ‘private’ healthcare they will not investigate your case. Who was your MP? They should have intervened on your behalf.

      • I contacted the local MP in the same are as the prison he didn’t want to know i never received a reply……the prison are really not at all responsible , all décisions about my son were made by the NHS team inside the prison…..when i started out with the complaint i knew that it was going to be hard for those dealing with it…because of the subject, mental illness is a difficult subject to deal with….but here we have the PHSO who accepted to investigate but did nothing except take verbal evidence from me and my son by phone and the doctors notes, they didn’t want to tackle the complaint as such by following up leads etc, it was all done lightly, evidence mostly side stepped and avoided… it was completely biased, i haven’t had an enquiry just a whitewash of the most lowest intelligence…..they really are taking the public for idiots..

  6. I’ve now managed to get a review request but as it’s not going to change anything i’ve done it simply so that no one can say later that i didn’t do it…if you follow. The strange thing is everyone i’ve spoken to on the phone this week at the PHSO have had Northern Irish accents so i’m wondering if the PHSO are sub-contracting out part of the work…I will be intrested to know what happens about the cases submitted to the Met Police as in ….conspiracy to pervert the course of justice…or corruption etc etc…..keep working hard.

  7. I have had serious issues with the Child Support Agency, they have acted in a manner which can be recognised in the tort of misfeasance in a public office, targeted malice as well as violations of Human Rights instruments and the Equality Act 2010 as well as many other Acts and Bills of Parliament. The Ombudsman refuse to investigate regardless of the substantial evidence I have which support criminal actions by the Child Support Agency. The corruption is rife within the establishment.

    • I have to agree with you Craig. Unfortunately, PHSO do very little to ‘put things right’ and simply cover up the facts.

    • Thanks for the link Colin. As you can see in the update we have now submitted the first 17 cases to the Met Police with more to follow. PHSO are getting away with criminal activity and this needs a full investigation.

      • Great news, were they sent by post or handed over in person, more détails please. I am currently battling with the PHSO Charlotte Carter over my review request, last week they said i would have one and yesterday they told me i would be receiving a final response in twenty days….so where is the investigation then ? I have now informed the PHSO that along with the complaint against the NHS Health Partnership Trust responsible for mistreatment and criminal negligence towards my son that i now wish to make an additional complaint against the PHSO for not having carried out any investigation in an objective and detailed manner, i think to hold individual investigators accountable as well as the PHSO collectively will be the way forward……

        • All cases were handed over personally and logged by the Met Police. All have names of the individual PHSO staff members concerned who failed to do their duty to the public and apply the Principles of Good Complaint Handling. Good luck with your case Colin.

  8. Interesting to see that list of staff included in your submissions.
    As said before, I have cases with them for refusal to disclose social services minutes between South Wales police and Rhondda Cynon Taff social services.
    Even after telling them what’s said in that meeting, they still try to claim exemptions for third party info and ICO even back them up…
    If it wasn’t so much obvious bullshit, I’d have walked away by now.

    No chance though…good luck to you…

    • Good luck to us all – the voice of the people, not prepared to accept what we are given. We need to reclaim our public services, funded by us to serve us yet totally corrupted from that purpose. They think they have the whole thing sewn up, but perhaps their arrogance will be their downfall.

  9. Yes, that is one of the biggest ironies, that it us who pay to be treated so badly. It’s would really change things if we could withdraw funds until such corruption is sorted. Not going to happen though so we must continue the fight we have started for reform and due justice. It is quite slow, but getting stronger and noisier.

    Bird and fortune , ? Cook and moore?
    Catherine Tate as Mellor..am I boverred?

  11. Della as I was one of the twelve members invited by Bernard Jenkin has my case been included in the presentation to the Met on 5 10 as I do want to go forward and have my voice heard loud and proud. I will never ever give up my fight for justice. I do have the law of the land in my favour having don and won a judicial review I have asked our Queen to intervene I will stop at nothing I am behind the group all the way xxx The voice of Scotland

  12. Della I am gathering all factual evidence together and will send it with supporting paper work. This is a giant step forward in our fight for justice I would not miss this chance for all the world xxx

  13. Hi Della,
    I am feeling good about the next move, but I am not IT friendly only learning how to get about the web with the help of friends.
    Would it be ok for me to send my papers to you to submit our complaint together, I would be very grateful for your help as I certainly don’t want to miss the deadline.

  14. I made a complaint to the PHSO about my daughters care in 2013 and they have not dealt with it yet . They closed down the case and I complained . They switched the case number and this allowed them to change the complaint . They told me to allow a local resolution to occur . My daughter and I were threatened , abused and traumatised by visits from Child Protection social workers . It seems that the hospital I had complained about simply got away with raising concerns about me instead . A care order was placed on my child , who was taken into care and has been abused ever since . The last time I saw my child , she was bald , had head wounds , was covered in bruises up both arms in various colours and had severe weight loss . I hold the Ombudsmans office responsible for not dealing with the complaint properly and quickly . They allowed a local resolution to take place , even though I warned them that my child would be abused if they did . They have still not dealt with the complaint which was about the standard of care offered to my child , who has been born with obvious palsy which was never identified by the hospital . Prematurity symptoms were never identified and nor was the obvious juvenile pernicious anaemia , even when I sent them photographs of my daughters yellow skin . They sent letters saying that I had not sent them the final response from the hospital when I had , which caused further delay . I remember having a phone conversation with a member of the ombudsmans office and saying that they are killing my child in care , to which they replied ” yes ” . The ombudsmans office also told me to ask my dead brother for permission to investigate his death in A+E .

  16. In 2012 the PHSO made investigations into my eldest son’s sudden and unexpected death, whilst he had been in the care of Pontefract Mid Yorkshire NHS trust. I provided to them the medical records to veiw I also gave them the evidence to disprove anything that that was documented on their records which was a appalling misrepresentation of who my son was and what he was doing during ,2008,,2009 . This is the fault of the Coroners officer, but they are beyond reproach it would seem. I requested to know where the false and untrue information had come from.. Andrew was a business man and a loving father to his children that he had spent all of his time spare time with his children when not working and travelling abroad in his company. Andrew was a football coach supporting his children in their own sports activities
    The medical records produced for Inquest purposes was no less than a defamation of Character to my son so much that we could not comprehend who they speaking about. Andrew had not had been no diagnosis if any medical condition prior rior to his death? The Coroner questioned this with the practice gp called to the Inquest. He
    had not seen a doctor For 19 months prior to his sudden death in thier care. In fact thishas been most distressing knowing that your son has died not knowing that he had any serious medical condition that could cause his untimely death.
    This is the following information, that has left me and my family and all who has given their support to us to continue for 6 ears seeking to know what had happened to my son in the early hours of the 27 the October 2009. and after the 4 days of Andrew’s admission to Pontefract Infirmary NHSTrust .
    Andrew had contacted his gp practice on the 20 ,th October 2009 to enquire about any vaccinations he may need to visit family friends in Indonesia for Xmas. His estranged wife was to have the children that Xmas . We had lost his dad jus a few months earlier from brain cancer he was heartbroken that he would not be with his dad and his his children at Xmas and this had affected him badly and family friends had suggested he go with them to Indonesia to see other family friends of his too. Andrew this had just taken his children in holiday to Cyprus with him. After this he contacted his practice nurse regarding vaccinations he may need for this visit. Hepatitis A and typhoid and was admitted been administered and my so died just one week later. It is understandable that the practice nurse would have been concerned about this. But to made untrue statements about my son and the reasons that she administered the vaccines. This was distressing and no one believes anything she said. The Coroner requested an apology from her. Even comments she made about my late husband’s death, who was not even a patient at this medical practice? I am still today disgusted at how all of the medical staff documented false and untrue statements which is quite clearly to cover up the appalling care of my eldest son.

    The Coroner who conducted the Inquest was angry and told them there was no evidence to have documented such wrong in the records they provided to her. ,We have spent 6 years to request to know what did really happen to my 39 year old eldest son in the early hours if the 27,th October that neither the Coroner not the PHSO has given us any answers to the following Information relating to the sudden death of my son. Now how now

    In the early hours of the 27th October after 4 days of my son’s admission from Friday the 23rd of October my son was found in a bathroom of a 4 bedded acute care ward. He had suffered an Un-NWITTNESSED Cardiac Arrest and was bleeding severely into his abdomen. Proved at a later date by viewing medical records. He had a lung Injury and was not breathing for an estimated time of 5 minutes .I had raised my concerns about the condition and safety of my son earlier on to the staff. I Requesting a doctor to be called to sedate my son and sedate him then call me back to let me know how my son. No scan or endoscopy had been performed to establish where the Internally bleeding was coming from and this was within the 4 days of my son’s admission and to to Pontefract Infirmary.
    I had to find out at a later date that it was an SHO trainee junior doctor who was not qaulified to have been in charge of the care and treatment of Andrew When on Sunday evening 2 days prior to Andrews death he had told Andrew and myself at his bedside that did not need to contact his Companies private medical Insurance they will be no better than team that you are recieving treatment from in here! My son could have been moved to a private Hospital and we shall never regret that I listened to the doctor. He denied this conversation after my son died, and in fact when the Coroners Officer rang me at my home to inform me that I had it wrong this doctor was not a treating consultant but a junior doctor denying this statement I was taken ill and refused the paramedics to my home I could take no more at this time.
    HERE
    Doctors who we had not seen on the acute care ward before this has happened to my son transferred my son after he was found in this critical condition on an artificial ventilator with an haemoglobin level less than 4,5 in transfer to U CU Pinderfields Hospital to the wonderful doctor Main. Who comforted my grandchildren. He sought surgeons advice but they could not operate this was too late and my lovely kind sin died a few hours later .
    The Coroners officer who I contacted daily upset informing her to speak to the Coroner about these serious concerns that me and my family had about the sudden death if Andrew told me time and time again that the Coroner cannnot give you the answers to these questions and you must take your concerns to the PHSO.
    In 2012 after the Pontefract Infirmary c!finical advisors refused to meet with me and my son we contacted the the PHSO. The PHSO informed me that they could not comment on any statements and reports produced to the Coroner for Inquest purpises. is this true? The PHSO Clinical advisor recorded that the internal bleeding was so severe that an endoscopy should have been performed,. And upheld nothing . And that they do not believe that it had contributed to my son’s death and that he would still have died . Would you believe this? If this was true we would like you to view the medical report from doctor Main . Why was Doctor Main seeking Surgeons advice after Andrews 4 ,days of my son’s admission and when found n a critical condition of a bathroom in an acute care ward. The appalling records that they made about my son was false and untrue to cover up their negligence.
    I had lost my husband only months before our eldest son , and my brother died suddenly in hindsight the Coroners Officer should have informed me to contact a solicitor and no matter what she has said to this she did not. My son Jason and i believe that we ought to have had legal advice.

    All of those in a place of trust has left me the mother and Andrews brother to fight for the truth to be told and a wrong to be corrected and put right such has the appalling records left in the name of my son .I thank many who have been here for us. back to me after another long drawn out Investigation in this last 6 Point me to the Patients Association for support? The DOH are quite aware if these circumstances surrounding of our case. I have provided evidence and documentation again to the PHSO

He denied this conversation after my son died, and in fact when the Coroners Officer rang me at my home to inform me that I had it wrong this doctor was not a treating consultant but a junior doctor denying this statement I was taken ill and refused the paramedics to my home I could take no more at this time.

    Doctors who we had not seen on the acute care ward before this has happened to my son transferred my son after he was found in this critical condition on an artificial ventilator with an haemoglobin level less than 4,5 in transfer to U CU Pinderfields Hospital to the wonderful doctor Main. Who comforted my grandchildren. He sought surgeons advice but they could not operate this was too late and my lovely kind sin died a few hours later .
    The Coroners officer who I contacted daily upset informing her to speak to the Coroner about these serious concerns that me and my family had about the sudden death if Andrew told me time and time again that the Coroner cannnot give you the answers to these questions and you must take your concerns to the PHSO.
    In 2012 after the Pontefract Infirmary c!finical advisors refused to meet with me and my son we contacted the the PHSO. The PHSO informed me that they could not comment on any statements and reports produced to the Coroner for Inquest purpises. is this true? The PHSO Clinical advisor recorded that the internal bleeding was so severe that an endoscopy should have been performed,. And upheld nothing . And that they do not believe that it had contributed to my son’s death and that he would still have died . Would you believe this? If this was true we would like you to view the medical report from doctor Main . Why was Doctor Main seeking Surgeons advice after Andrews 4 ,days of my son’s admission and when found n a critical condition of a bathroom in an acute care ward. The appalling records that they made about my son was false and untrue to cover up their negligence.
    I had lost my husband only months before our eldest son , and my brother died suddenly in hindsight the Coroners Officer should have informed me to contact a solicitor and no matter what she has said to this she did not. My son Jason and i believe that we ought to have had legal advice.

    All of those in a place of trust has left me the mother and Andrews brother to fight for the truth to be told and a wrong to be corrected and put right such has the appalling records left in the name of my son .I thank many who have been here for us. back to me after another long drawn out Investigation in this last 6 Point me to the Patients Association for support? The DOH are quite aware if these circumstances surrounding of our case. I have provided evidence and documentation again to the PHSO
