I’ve been fairly controlled over recent weeks, months or even years. I suppose I’ve been waiting and hoping for a chink of light to emerge, for a culture change to emerge, for a way forward to emerge in the so-called system of care that we have allowed to be in place.
However, I am reaching screaming point. Hardly surprising. When someone is destroyed because of absent systems of protection, and when it then takes almost 5 years to work your way through to a full understanding of why the so-callled system of care for vulnerable people fails to provide decent care so very often – that’s when you reach screaming point.
Time and time again, the CQC comes up with yet another report as it did today, with a report into the ‘care’ afforded to people with learning disabilities. Or rather the lack of care. I’ve read it all, but there’s not much hope for real change.
Week and month after week and month, our government comes up with …… not one single plan to improve things.
Year after year, the same old same old same old gets published in the press, reported on radio, featured on TV.
Still nothing changes, so I need to scream now. It won’t change anything – but it may just help me to scream.

Therewith, I will leave this one for today. But not for long.
