Dr Dai Sheepman and the 2008 NHS Constitution

I now call Dr A, Dr Dai Sheepman solely because of the cover up performed by the Local Health Board, Independent Review, Ombudsman for Wales and Healthcare Inspectorate Wales.

I in no way imply or suggest that, in any manner, does Dr A’s behaviour indicate ANY more serious offence other than that he is a poorly performing doctor.

I only  use the horrific case of Dr H Shipman as an extreme example of a cover up by the medical profession.

( But Dr Shipman’s wife  apparently got  a FULL pension from the NHS on his death.)


The “cover up” was evident in the NHS complaint system in Wales and his, Dr Sheepman  response to MY complaint. I use my sister as one example of the cover up, although I could also add Dr K and EVERY other GP I have seen since 1998 as I have told them ALL.


Which could explain why I cannot get treatment as outlined in the

 NHS constitution

The NHS belongs to the people. It is there to improve our health, supporting us to keep mentally and physically well, to get better when we are ill and, when we cannot fully recover, to stay as well as we can. It works at the limits of science – bringing the highest levels of human knowledge and skill to save lives and improve health. It touches our lives at times of basic human need, when care and compassion are what matter most.

You have the right not to be unlawfully discriminated against in the provision of NHS services including on grounds of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability (including learning disability or mental illness).

You have the right to accept or refuse treatment that is offered to you, and not to be given any physical examination or treatment
unless you have given valid consent. If you do not have the capacity to do so, consent must be obtained from a person legally able to act
on your behalf, or
the treatment must be in your best interests.
You have the right to be given information about your proposed treatment in advance,
including any significant risks and any alternative treatments which may be available, and the risks involved in doing nothing.
Involvement in your healthcare and in the NHS: You have the right to be involved in discussions and decisions about your healthcare, and to be given information to enable you to do this.

You have the right to compensation where you have been harmed by negligent treatment.

The NHS will strive to ensure that if you make a complaint, you will receive a timely and appropriate response, that any harm you suffered is corrected where possible, and that the organisation learns lessons and puts in place necessary improvements. (pledge)

The NHS will strive to ensure that you receive appropriate support and are treated with respect and courtesy throughout the handling of any complaint you make; and the fact that you have complained will not affect your future treatment. (pledge)



They said his wickedness was nothing to do with general practice, and condemned any attempt to draw parallels between Shipman and poorly performing or incompetent doctors.  Speakers at the British Medical Association conference on Wednesday said his wickedness was nothing to do with general practice, and condemned any attempt to draw parallels between Shipman and poorly performing or incompetent doctors.  They also argued that failure to expose Shipman earlier was the fault of politicians, NHS managers and the police – it was nothing to do with the medical profession.

Poorly performing doctors, said Dr Grenville, were often unaware of their shortcomings.

Harold Shipman was not a poorly performing GP, he was a murderer who happened to be a GP. In contrast, Shipman was fully aware of what he was doing, and lied and cheated to try to cover up his wickedness.  says Dr John Grenville, Derbyshire GP

The same opportunity exists for a doctor whose standard of care has fallen below par, or for a doctor who knows that the standard of care of a colleague or the collective standard of care of a medical team, has been less than satisfactory.  In short, it gives doctors the chance to cover up.  from The Shipman Inquiry and the Coroners Review by Dame Janet Smith

Why do the Royal Colleges and the BMA appear so intent on protecting doctors before protecting the public? Dr Simon Fradd, a member of the General Medical Council, the British Medical Association’s committee for GPs and chairman of the Doctor-Patient Partnership, answers: This question saddens me because it is very far from the truth  and Doctors will have to regularly prove their abilities in order to retain the right to practice.


Also in a totally unrelated case  Detective Inspector David Smith, 46, has also been accused of withholding crucial information that caused a £10m drugs trial to collapse. The Police Complaints Authority is investigating both matters. Greater Manchester Police confirmed yesterday that DI Smith, who has been with the force for 27 years, had been suspended since Friday. If he is found to have broken police rules or acted in an incompetent or unprofessional manner he could be sacked. “He told lies … and repeated some of those lies in statements made to this inquiry,” Dame Janet said.


Primary school Teacher in Scotland may get  struck off for professional incompetence


A teenager committed suicide live on the internet while 1,500 people watched, it was claimed today.

Some comments from his suicide note which I can relate to: I have let everyone down; There is no way to tell you or anyone else why I dread every new day; I tried so hard to fight against this strong battle. I have reached out for help so many times, and yet I believe, I was turned away because of the things I did, that it is a punishment


The charity Cancer Research UK found GPs too often miss symptoms or do not send enough patients for tests.

The Welsh NHS have announced a new screening service. at the cost of £5 million when if doctors HAD done their jobs properly and listened to patients the incidence would be less.

Many people are not diagnosed with bowel cancer until they are in the advanced stages of the disease, but treatment is likely to be more effective if the disease is picked up at an early stage. However, there are often no symptoms at this stage, highlighting the importance of the new screening programme. Or to put it another way Doctors IGNORE the patients symptoms.

Coincidentally I knew THREE people that  went to Dr Sheepman and their symptoms were ignored for at least 2 years. One died as her cancer was too far advanced when eventually she was sent for tests. The other two now have  colostomy bags. I also know of other doctors that IGNORED the patients symptoms leading to bowel resection and colostomy bags for the patients. One a good friend I meet everyday in Neath Community Centre.

The two survivors describe Dr Sheepman with passion “That c*nt, he fucking nearly killed me” and ” Dr <name> is an ignorant fucking man, I<sic> tried to complain but somehow he blocked it and got away scot free like fkn Houdini. If I had stayed with him I would be fkn dead now”
