A psychiatrist, Mumford, who has a history of abusing mental health patients, wants to run Bristol mental health services as a “social enterprise” (see below). By abuse I mean forced ECT, humiliation and forced isolation. I know because I was under his “care” while a patient on Dundry ward in Barrow hospital. We don’t want our mental health services run by these bullies and charlatans. We need to campaign for them to stay within the NHS as a Bristol based service which is responsive to the needs of service users and treats us with dignity and respect.
