It's long overdue - lunatics are running the asylum, dangerous and overpaid lunatics like Linda Astor, Brenda Sally Rimkeit, Gary Orr.
And two months after this was published, I was incarcerated in the Hotel Rangipapa . . .
And when I filed an application in the High Court for a Judicial Inquiry, with Capital Coast District Health Board as co-respondent with the Attorney General, I was transferred out of the jurisdiction of the CCDHB, to Te Whare Ahuru, Hutt Valley Mental Health Services. I was there for several more weeks, until I reinstated the application, which I discovered had been "discontinued". Shortly thereafter my responsible clinician was changed, to Dr Wolfgang Kure (a professional and enlightened doctor), and I was given leave from the hospital and allowed to go home. A couple of weeks later my status was changed, I am no longer under section 30 of the Mental Health Act, and my official status now is "informal".
I hope Dr Wolfgang Kure can turn the Hutt Valley mental health services around, they have a very bad reputation. They also have a lot of potential, more of the staff openly spoke out against my detention - realising that it was the height of corruption and a total abuse of power. Dr Orr needs to be sacked for gross misconduct like Rimkeit, Short and others!
