Waiting for New Zealand Politicians to #StandUp4HumanRights, #PMJacindaArdern, do you care about the human rights of our most vulnerable ?

Post on Facebook Human rights complaints New Zealand.
Start:
Open letter to Prime Minister Elect Rt Honourable Jacinda Ardern; will you stand up for the human rights ?

Yesterday was international human rights day here in New Zealand, no press release from our current government.
“NZ politicians Do Not #StandUp4HumanRights”, in fact both sides of the so called political devide comprising of neoliberal political centrist parties New Zealand Labour Party and National party have facilitated through various legislative measures and propaganda for nearly thirty years; a Kleptocratic system that systemically violates multiple UN Treaties New Zealand has ratified; our politicians have over many years built a human rights watchdog org system comprising of HRC, HDC and Ombudsman NZ; who’s hidden black neoliberal government agenda is to conceal serious human rights violations, this hidden black neoliberal government agenda is betrayed by how consequetive Labour and National governments have allowed ACC New Zealand to morph into a vicious corrupt corporation that has poisoned New Zealand’s health and disability sector, thousands of sick, injured, disabled New Zealand citizens have been denied much needed support, rehabilitation and legal intitlements, ACC’s corruption based human rights violations have destroyed and cost the lives of so many disabled Kiwi’s.
ACC New Zealand has been systemically violating the United Nations CRPD for years, ACC’s corruption based human rights violations have been facilitated by  multiple politicians over thirty years; who have used ACC to prop up their corrupt Kleptocratic neoliberal black government that favours the rights of the very wealthy and corporations over the average Kiwi citizen.

> Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home — so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. […] Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.” — Eleanor Roosevelt
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights turns 70
Let’s stand up for equality, justice and human dignity
Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December – the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, theUniversal Declaration of Human Rights. This year, Human Rights Day kicks off a year-long campaign to mark the upcoming 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being — regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. It is the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages.
Drafted by representatives of diverse legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration sets out universal values and a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations. It establishes the equal dignity and worth of every person. Thanks to the Declaration, and States’ commitments to its principles, the dignity of millions has been uplifted and the foundation for a more just world has been laid. While its promise is yet to be fully realized, the very fact that it has stood the test of time is testament to the enduring universality of its perennial values of equality, justice and human dignity.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all. The principles enshrined in the Declaration are as relevant today as they were in 1948. We need to stand up for our own rights and those of others. We can take action in our own daily lives, to uphold the rights that protect us all and thereby promote the kinship of all human beings.   
#StandUp4HumanRights
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all.Human rights are relevant to all of us, every day.Our shared humanity is rooted in these universal values.Equality, justice and freedom prevent violence and sustain peace.Whenever and wherever humanity’s values are abandoned, we all are at greater risk.We need to stand up for our rights and those of others.

Evidence 1.

Health and disability commission; MHC, Dr Lynne Lane; attends public meeting, 10 August 2012, at Pathways Wise Group CareNZ office, 20 Victoria Street Masterton. 
I received an invitation to attend this public meeting; I attended this public meeting with my HDC advocate Betty Knott; and an support person Victoria; approximately 25 people attended this meeting; “two Wairarapa DHB representatives were also present”.

I spoke of my serious systemic complaint at this meeting; I read the content of my systemic complaint that was filed with Betty Knott HDC Advocacy, 21 May 2012.

I then was able to speak of my systemic complaint; to Dr Lynne Lane; at an short private individual meeting; Betty Knott HDC Advocacy; and Victoria my quit smoking coach as support person were present at this meeting. 
Background: Wairarapa DHB fail to investigate serious complaint.

Evidence 2.

Due to Betty Knott perverting the course of my complaint; I filed an comprehensive complaint with the Health and disability commissioner’s office on; December 4 2012.

During 2013, Wairarapa DHB officer; Strategic development and population health manager Simon Everitt became involved with my HDC complaint, number C12HDC01560.

Simon Everitt colluded with Pathways provider Michelle Glenny; to shut down any accountability for my serious complaint, Simon Everitt did not undertake any investigation into my complaint; he also denied two other complainant’s accountability by colliding with Pathways manager Michelle Glenny; stating that these complaints had already been resolved, mine and the other two complaints as of today; with this OIA(Official information act) request to Wairarapa DHB “have not been investigated or resolved.

Simon Everitt, Wairarapa DHB involvement with my 4 December 2012 systemic complaint number; C12HDC01560; evidence of involvement reference. 
New Zealand Health and disability commissioner MHC, Dr Lynne Lane; Wairarapa DHB visit; 2-3 February; and 10 August 2012. 
Wairarapa DHB visit in August 2012 
Outcome of the Mental Health Commissioner Consultation with Consumers and their Family/Whanāu in the Wairarapa District. 
August 2012 
  
1.0       Background to the consultation with Wairarapa consumers and family/whanāu 
1.1        On 2-3 February 2012, the Mental Health Commission (MHC) conducted a District Sector Visit (DSV) in the Wairarapa. The Wairarapa DHB had made significant changes to the contracts and governance arrangements for mental health and addiction services just prior to the DSV. The purpose of these changes was to achieve higher quality better integrated services that would lead to improved mental health outcomes for people in the Wairarapa. 
1.2        During the DSV the MHC did not hold face to face meetings with consumers and family/whanāu members due to MHC’s lack of capacity during the transition to disestablishment. Over 30 Wairarapa service users and family/whanāu completed questionnaires in lieu of a meeting. They requested an opportunity to meet with the Mental Health Commissioner to discuss their concerns about the potential adverse impacts of the services changes that were not yet fully implemented. It was therefore agreed that the Mental Health Commissioner would conduct follow-up meetings with consumers and their family/whanāu to assess how well the new arrangements were meeting their needs. 
1.3        Over the past 12 months organisational change has impacted on the DSV process conducted by the Mental Health Commissioner. The MHC was disestablished on 30 June 2012. From 1 July, the Office of the Health and Disability Commissioner (HDC) is responsible for monitoring and advocating for improvements in Mental Health and Addiction Services and includes the role of Mental Health Commissioner. The HDC is conducting DSVs on a biannual basis as did the MHC. 
1.4       DSVs are not a forum for consumers and/or their family/whanāu to make formal complaints to HDC, however that option is explained to those who specifically express an interest in doing so. 
2.0       Summary of feedback from consultation meetings on 10thAugust 2012 
2.1        On 10th August the Mental Health Commissioner met with Wairarapa Mental Health and Addiction Service Users/Tangata Whaiora and their family/whanāu. Approximately 100 people attended the meetings at three venues: Supporting Families, Pathways and Te Hauora Runanga O Wairarapa.  Participants were assured that any information they shared would be treated in strictest confidence and only anonymous feedback would be used to advocate for improvements in services. 
2.2        People attending the consultation meetings identified a wide range of issues on what was working for them and what was not working. The process did not allow for a systematic review of all the Mental Health and Addiction Services funded by the Wairarapa DHB. However a number of key themes were consistently raised and confirmed by many people attending the meetings. 
2.3        The feedback focused on recent experience with the mental health and addiction services and overall reflected less confidence in the DHB following the recent changes in contracted providers. 
2.4        Confidence in the Mental Health and Addiction Services has been undermined by the loss of local consumer and family advisor roles being filled by people resident in the Wairarapa. We heard how much importance they place on having a trusted representative who is familiar with their concerns and able to influence the delivery of services. 
2.5        Concerns were raised about not being able to access appropriate care when they or their family/whanāu member was acutely unwell. This was particularly an issue for youth and adults at high risk of suicide. 
2.6        There was wide agreement by people using alcohol and other drug services that the services did not reflect a recovery focus and they were not being adequately listened to, or involved in decisions regarding their care. The high level of concern expressed was compounded by a lack of due process if they complained to the provider. 
2.7        Consumers and family/whanāu are increasingly turning to other organisations for the support they need. They are choosing organisations which make them feel welcome, respected and cared about as people.  Supporting Families and Te Hauora O Wairarapa Services were praised for the services they provide. 
2.8        Other suggestions were made about how things should be, including the need to strengthen community-led responses to reduce suicide, services to support addicts to stay abstinent, and provide programmes to promote mental health and wellbeing. 
  
3.0       Wairarapa DHB Senior Management Response 
3.1        At the conclusion of the meetings with consumers family/whanāu the Mental Health Commissioner met with the DHB Senior Management team to provide timely feedback from the meetings. The DHB listened to consumers and their whanāu/family members concerns and has taken action to rebuild confidence in the services. 
3.2        The DHB immediately convened a meeting of key provider and consumer advocates to discuss the concerns that had been brought to their attention.  It was agreed that the CEO would sponsor the establishment of a DHB wide Improvement Programme to ensure the new model of integrated Mental Health and Addiction Services fully achieves its aim of improving the patient/whanāu experience, improve the health of the population and achieve value for money within a constrained budget. 
3.3        The Improvement Programme is to be undertaken by the Mental Health and Addiction Service Improvement Group which will be supported by the Wairarapa DHB Director of Quality Safety and Risk. The Improvement Programme goals include the following outcomes: 
improving trust and confidence, generally: with a specific focus on improving complaint processes;increasing the local consumer voice;improving access to appropriate care in acute/ crisis situations;strengthening the focus on recovery and supporting the consumer to meet their recovery goals;improving the provision of support to whanāu/families; andopen and honest communication with patients, whanāu/families and education around what services are available. 
3.4        Individual improvement programmes will be developed for each provider to address specific concerns expressed by consumers, families/whanāu. 
3.5        The Improvement Programme will validate the communities concerns and ensure they are engaged in agreeing the actions to address them. 
3.6        Community-led responses to reducing the incidence and harm as a result of suicide will be enhanced. Specific steps have also been taken to strengthen the DHB role in supporting suicide prevention. 
3.7        In the interest of openness and transparency the DHB will make the systemic Improvement Programme public and will publicise progress against the plan quarterly and share the results with the Office of the Health and Disability Commissioner.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Riddler

Wairarapa DHB do not undertake medical investigations in to serious complaints involving sub-standard care, medical negligence and gross misconduct. 
There is a criminal bullying and cover up culture that is facilitated by the Health and disability commissioner Anthony Hill; who shuts multiple complaints down under HDC act 38, “To take no further action”. 
This criminal misuse of legislation has endangered the wider Wairarapa community, this is systemic through multiple DHB regions.

The Ministry of health MOH investigation into Wairarapa DHB Focus and Healthcare New Zealand Holdings Ltd; Dr Lynne Lane Director, “4 1/2 year assault with intent to injure”; via punitive reduction of in home care from 18 hours per week allocated to my high needs disabled partner, reduced to just 2 hours per week has caused much trauma and harm. 
This and other criminal actions have been employed against me and my high needs disabled partner. 
As of up dating this OIA request to the Wairarapa DHB today, the MOH Investigator is subjecting us to victim blaming, by delivering out right lies from Wairarapa DHB Focus needs assessor Ian Child’s, and complete misrepresentations of the facts delivered by Healthcare New Zealand Holdings Ltd; to conceal my initial complaint that Wairarapa DHB failed to investigate. 
Two disabled people; my high needs quadraplegic disabled partner and I have been subjected to years of abuse, lies and bullying from Wairarapa DHB. 
The 4 1/2 year assault with intent to injure; via a punitive reduction of in home care also exposes serious corruption of over $200,000 misdirected allocated in home care hours funded to Wairarapa DHB Focus needs assessor by the ministry of health.

Wairarapa DHB fails to investigate serious complaint, then subjects complainant and high needs disabled partner to four and half years of criminal retaliation; Ombudsman NZ refuses to undertake investigation into multiple complaints, the Ombudsman’s failure to investigate has led to the lives of two disabled Wairarapa residents being ruined, the Ombudsman left the door open to years of further criminal human rights violations.

Background: Wairarapa DHB fail to investigate serious complaint.

Evidence 1.

Health and disability commission; MHC, Dr Lynne Lane; attends public meeting, 10 August 2012, at Pathways Wise Group CareNZ office, 20 Victoria Street Masterton.
I received an invitation to attend this public meeting; I attended this public meeting with my HDC advocate Betty Knott; and an support person Victoria; approximately 25 people attended this meeting; “two Wairarapa DHB representatives were also present”.

I spoke of my serious systemic complaint at this meeting; I read the content of my systemic complaint that was filed with Betty Knott HDC Advocacy, 21 May 2012.

I then was able to speak of my systemic complaint; to Dr Lynne Lane; at an short private individual meeting; Betty Knott HDC Advocacy; and Victoria my quit smoking coach as support person were present at this meeting.
Background: Wairarapa DHB fail to investigate serious complaint.

Evidence 2.

Betty Knott, Wairarapa Nationwide health and disability advocacy service; did not act in my best interest; Betty Knott colluded with Wairarapa DHB mental health and addiction providers; Pathways and CareNZ; my HDC advocate altered,redacted my systemic complaint by using confidential information from my private email dated 14 May 2012.

Due to Betty Knott perverting the course of my complaint; I filed an comprehensive complaint with the Health and disability commissioner’s office on; December 4 2012.

During 2013, Wairarapa DHB officer; Strategic development and population health manager Simon Everitt became involved with my HDC complaint, number C12HDC01560.

Simon Everitt colluded with Pathways provider Michelle Glenny; to shut down any accountability for my serious complaint, Simon Everitt did not undertake any investigation into my complaint; he also denied two other complainant’s accountability by colliding with Pathways manager Michelle Glenny; stating that these complaints had already been resolved, mine and the other two complaints as of today; with this OIA(Official information act) request to Wairarapa DHB “have not been investigated or resolved.

Wairarapa DHB Simon Everitt did not have the clinical qualifications to be involved with my serious systemic complaint; or the other two complaints that were lodged at Betty Knott’s office on; 21 May 2012.

Simon Everitt was fully involved with the installation of Pathways Wise Group & CareNZ; as mental health and addiction providers to Wairarapa DHB from 2011 through 2013. (Link below)

Outcome of the Mental Health Commissioner Consultation with Consumers and their Family/Whanāu in the Wairarapa District.
August 2012
 
1.0       Background to the consultation with Wairarapa consumers and family/whanāu
1.1        On 2-3 February 2012, the Mental Health Commission (MHC) conducted a District Sector Visit (DSV) in the Wairarapa. The Wairarapa DHB had made significant changes to the contracts and governance arrangements for mental health and addiction services just prior to the DSV. The purpose of these changes was to achieve higher quality better integrated services that would lead to improved mental health outcomes for people in the Wairarapa.
1.2        During the DSV the MHC did not hold face to face meetings with consumers and family/whanāu members due to MHC’s lack of capacity during the transition to disestablishment. Over 30 Wairarapa service users and family/whanāu completed questionnaires in lieu of a meeting. They requested an opportunity to meet with the Mental Health Commissioner to discuss their concerns about the potential adverse impacts of the services changes that were not yet fully implemented. It was therefore agreed that the Mental Health Commissioner would conduct follow-up meetings with consumers and their family/whanāu to assess how well the new arrangements were meeting their needs.
1.3        Over the past 12 months organisational change has impacted on the DSV process conducted by the Mental Health Commissioner. The MHC was disestablished on 30 June 2012. From 1 July, the Office of the Health and Disability Commissioner (HDC) is responsible for monitoring and advocating for improvements in Mental Health and Addiction Services and includes the role of Mental Health Commissioner. The HDC is conducting DSVs on a biannual basis as did the MHC.
1.4       DSVs are not a forum for consumers and/or their family/whanāu to make formal complaints to HDC, however that option is explained to those who specifically express an interest in doing so.
2.0       Summary of feedback from consultation meetings on 10thAugust 2012
2.1        On 10th August the Mental Health Commissioner met with Wairarapa Mental Health and Addiction Service Users/Tangata Whaiora and their family/whanāu. Approximately 100 people attended the meetings at three venues: Supporting Families, Pathways and Te Hauora Runanga O Wairarapa.  Participants were assured that any information they shared would be treated in strictest confidence and only anonymous feedback would be used to advocate for improvements in services.
2.2        People attending the consultation meetings identified a wide range of issues on what was working for them and what was not working. The process did not allow for a systematic review of all the Mental Health and Addiction Services funded by the Wairarapa DHB. However a number of key themes were consistently raised and confirmed by many people attending the meetings.
2.3        The feedback focused on recent experience with the mental health and addiction services and overall reflected less confidence in the DHB following the recent changes in contracted providers.
2.4        Confidence in the Mental Health and Addiction Services has been undermined by the loss of local consumer and family advisor roles being filled by people resident in the Wairarapa. We heard how much importance they place on having a trusted representative who is familiar with their concerns and able to influence the delivery of services.
2.5        Concerns were raised about not being able to access appropriate care when they or their family/whanāu member was acutely unwell. This was particularly an issue for youth and adults at high risk of suicide.
2.6        There was wide agreement by people using alcohol and other drug services that the services did not reflect a recovery focus and they were not being adequately listened to, or involved in decisions regarding their care. The high level of concern expressed was compounded by a lack of due process if they complained to the provider.
2.7        Consumers and family/whanāu are increasingly turning to other organisations for the support they need. They are choosing organisations which make them feel welcome, respected and cared about as people.  Supporting Families and Te Hauora O Wairarapa Services were praised for the services they provide.
2.8        Other suggestions were made about how things should be, including the need to strengthen community-led responses to reduce suicide, services to support addicts to stay abstinent, and provide programmes to promote mental health and wellbeing.
 
3.0       Wairarapa DHB Senior Management Response
3.1        At the conclusion of the meetings with consumers family/whanāu the Mental Health Commissioner met with the DHB Senior Management team to provide timely feedback from the meetings. The DHB listened to consumers and their whanāu/family members concerns and has taken action to rebuild confidence in the services.
3.2        The DHB immediately convened a meeting of key provider and consumer advocates to discuss the concerns that had been brought to their attention.  It was agreed that the CEO would sponsor the establishment of a DHB wide Improvement Programme to ensure the new model of integrated Mental Health and Addiction Services fully achieves its aim of improving the patient/whanāu experience, improve the health of the population and achieve value for money within a constrained budget.
3.3        The Improvement Programme is to be undertaken by the Mental Health and Addiction Service Improvement Group which will be supported by the Wairarapa DHB Director of Quality Safety and Risk. The Improvement Programme goals include the following outcomes:
improving trust and confidence, generally: with a specific focus on improving complaint processes;increasing the local consumer voice;improving access to appropriate care in acute/ crisis situations;strengthening the focus on recovery and supporting the consumer to meet their recovery goals;improving the provision of support to whanāu/families; andopen and honest communication with patients, whanāu/families and education around what services are available.
3.4        Individual improvement programmes will be developed for each provider to address specific concerns expressed by consumers, families/whanāu.
3.5        The Improvement Programme will validate the communities concerns and ensure they are engaged in agreeing the actions to address them.
3.6        Community-led responses to reducing the incidence and harm as a result of suicide will be enhanced. Specific steps have also been taken to strengthen the DHB role in supporting suicide prevention.
3.7        In the interest of openness and transparency the DHB will make the systemic Improvement Programme public and will publicise progress against the plan quarterly and share the results with the Office of the Health and Disability Commissioner.New Zealand Ombudsmen left the door open for Wairarapa DHB Focus to take retaliatory actions Against a complainant.

News media reports New Zealand health and disability commissioner routinely deny health and disability complainants an effective remedy; closing the majority of serious complaint without investigation, the New Zealand HDC exists purely to protect medical practioners who commit medical misadventure, medical negligence and gross misconduct. New Zealand health and disability commissioners office has been violating the United Nations Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities CRPD for years. The stress and trauma this has imparted on disabled complainants; and their families has ruined lives.

New Zealand medical corruption; ACC New Zealand has poisoned NZ’s health system; and the Health and disability commissioner has been enabling ACC’s crimes for years.

Here are some news-media reports on our Health and Disability Commissioner:

The first one I printed out from the web and scanned it into a PDF file, which is attached. It is titled “New HDC won’t be ‘new broom'”, which is an article from Jodi Yeats, and which was published by ‘NZ Doctor’ magazine on 19 May 2010.

Already then it was clear that there were not going to be any expected major changes or any improvements in the running of that office. Anthony Hill was quoted as saying before starting is job: “Ron [Paterson] has done a first class job and the office is running well”. Anthony Hill worked as Director General for the Ministry of Health, and also in other roles in that ministry, altogether for 15 years. He was also formerly the Ministry’s Chief Legal Advisor, the article says, so one must presume he knows all the networks and systems, many of the senior and not so senior doctors, and is really nothing but an official careerist, who seems to have been hand-picked by a selected panel, to become Commissioner.

It seems a bit like a cat hired to guard the mice, or an employer who suddenly chooses to become a union advocate, or whatever.

He is quoted as also saying: “The quality agenda asks “what happened, rather than who did it””. He furthermore says: “It is about learning and strengthening the system”. He then also refers to the then new Health Quality and Safety Commission.

What the article reports is basically also just about the same, what I have heard from doctors not so long ago, and Anthony Hill’s track record shows it to this date. His office does under his leadership only take firm, decisive disciplinary – or other similar actions – in very few cases, the rest is all about “talking things over” and “improving” the system.

In the article one can read also: “Both the NZMA and RNZCGP have welcomed the appointment and say they look forward to supporting and assisting the new health and disability commissioner”. Here are the very organisations representing the ones to be checked, actually cheering the man on.

So all of us who may expect some proper complaint resolution, where the professionals that made mistakes or committed misconduct, or seriously breached the Code of Ethics, are held accountable, we should not be surprised that not much is done that “harms” any professional. Such a Commission is a sick joke, really!

The other article is rather short, and was a news-item on 1ZB from 24 July this year, where the Minister for Health Tony Ryall is challenged by opposition health spokeswoman Annette King, to do something about the funding issues the Health and Disability Office has. It is titled “Health Minister told cough up for disability”. The HDC Offices are apparently well short of funds, while probably having a high work-load. According to that short article financial deficits can be expected to 2015 if not 2016, should they not be granted extra shortly.

That tells us of course, that they will be working with too few staff trying to cope with increasing work-loads. Naturally, the not so “pressing” complaints will thus be “off-loaded” a.s.a.p., as part of “prioritising”. Of course their legal staff will know all the ins and outs, to use the gaps and convenient provisions in the law, to find reasons to get away with this.

I ask, when is New Zealand ever going to get true standards and quality control for health and disability services? When are we getting a Health and Disability Commission that actually serves the persons worst affected, that is the end users of health and disability services, who get maltreated, neglected, served poorly, or harmed by incompetent or Code breaching doctors and other health professionals?

Answers to the questions will be welcome, Mr Ryall, same as Miss King, once you are at the helm again!

Below the line; living poor in America, Wall Street bankers like New Zealand’s PM John Key have through their criminal actions; created desparate generational poverty in the US, now bankster crook John Key is destroying NZ’s economy, spiralling unpresedented debt; serious social problems, inequality and poverty, below the line; living poor in New Zealand; this is John Keys brighter future.

Update II: Wow, they deleted the link to my article on Reddit too!

Update I: I just found that my article was linked to at reddit and there were a few remarks there I thought I’d address:

First of all, I don’t see a Jewish Conspiracy. I see a country which was obtained by deceit and terror for a group of people who, while claiming they were Jews, were very much part of a secular movement. The Zionist movement is a young political movement while the Judaic faith is a very old religion and there are millions of Jews who very much against the state of Israel and who say that Jews are the people who believe in the Judaic religion and as such do not represent a race.I also see a very well organised Zionist network around the world which is well financed and which uses the terms anti…

Did you grow up in a politicised family? How did the politics of your childhood home affect you?

I am a child of US-propaganda, of the Cold War and of Reaganomics. My parents were not political people in my childhood, although they became so much later in my life. Funnily enough, however, my father’s hatred of the police is something I definitely inherited. I remember so vividly how he used to call them “the village idiots.” I really appreciate the effect on me of his total loathing of illegitimate authority.

What politicised you? Did you have a penny drop…
