Dear Patient,

Please see the e-mails below.  The BCA have been involved for 4 years.  I am stunned by their response.  The cover-up is bigger than I thought.

Dear Satjit,

Please find attached my last communication to the solicitor of Child X’s mother regarding the Ombudsman.  It is self-explanatory.  I presume that my case with the GCC will be covered by my indemnity insurance.

Kind regards,

Howard

From: Lamb Chiropractic Clinic [mailto:Lambchiro@btinternet.com] Sent: 08 July 2016 11:48 To: ‘Tracey Allen’ Subject: Child X

Dear Tracey,

Please send 2 letters for Child X’s mother.

1). To the Ombudsman asking what they have done regarding my information supplied about potential child abuse and negligence by the Council for the record.

2). To retrieve the Psychologist’s notes (Dr Kenny) and all the other confidential information that they have lost.

Child X’s mother can provide all the right information about who to write to.

Obviously the Council will only accept a psychologist’s diagnosis as seen in the Ombudsman’s Report.  Dr Kenny diagnosed Child X as high functioning autistic with secondary ADHD.  Surprise, surprise, these important notes and lots of other confidential information seems to have gone missing, and are months and months overdue.  Please do not pull your punches in your communications.

Kind regards,

Howard

Dear Mr Howell,

Thank you for your letter of 6th July informing me that my name has been removed from the Chiropractic Register (Reg. No. 00024), in our 80th year as a family. Over 1 million patient treatments with one blemish, a fraudulent claim that failed, you were fully informed and did nothing. I have put this matter in the hands of the BCA and the rest of the profession.

Your appeal system seems flawed. A 3-person panel: one from your staff, a GP who probably hates chiropractors, and a musculo-skeletal chiropractor who is anti-neurological chiropractic. All hand-picked by you or your staff I presume.

I have not had any response from you about my letters of complaint, criminal negligence, complicity to child abuse, and several breeches of law. I wonder why?

Unfortunately I am having to inform my 18,000 patients that my name has been removed from the register, and why I cannot call myself a chiropractor any longer. I believe that press, radio, and internet will get the message to them quickest.

Yours Sincerely,

Howard Lamb
DC

Dear Tracey,

I spent time with Lewis and talked to Sarah-Jane, both of whom seem not to want to accept the Ombudsman’s ruling or compensation from the Council.  When you receive their confirmation of this, please send it to the Ombudsman.  Obviously they need to find out what has been done regarding child abuse and criminal negligence first.

Kind regards,

 Howard

Dear Mr Howell,

I believe that Jamie has my CPD retention form and my 3 letters of complaint which have not been dealt with in your absence. Clearly they show that my CPD is correct, and the information we discussed in correspondence regarding my networking at the ECU, BCA and UCA conferences gave me the information needed to formulate them. Where it says in the Chiropractic Act that you have discretion on how to deal with the law, you and your predecessor have taken it that it means discretion on whether you complied or not to the legislation, which seems to be where the problems have emanated. Law is law, you cannot pick and choose.

Reading back through my correspondence to you, your non-compliance to the Chiropractic Act has had far-reaching effects, particularly over your duty of care for chiropractic patients, or lack of should I say. This is one of the major reasons for the GCC’s existence. If you had complied with the law I am sure that we would not be in this situation today.

Even at this late stage you can comply but this is up to you to decide, or you may feel that a regulator is too big to fail, and continue with your current course where there will be consequences for your actions whether I am still in the profession or not. After all, my father treated my spectrum autism so I am certainly a chiropractic patient of long-standing and as such will still have a voice.

Yours Sincerely,

Howard Lamb
DC

From: Lamb Chiropractic Clinic  Sent: 10 June 2016 16:11 To: ‘Jamie Button’ Subject: My complaints

Dear Jamie,

My complaints are from me as a chiropractor and for my chiropractic patients (Child X and family) who I have been in contact with the GCC about, repeatedly, over the last 4 years.  I believe that my Associations have been in contact on the subject but have been limited by my patient’s confidentiality agreement.

Whilst on the subject of CPD please send me details of your CPD and Mr Howell’s, and also your CV which I am still waiting for.  This should be covered by Freedom of Information and Transparency legislation.

I have attached copies of my trilogy of complaint letters (dated 23/05/16, 27/15/16, and a third letter dated 06/06/16 which accompanied the e-mail of the same date.)  So far all I have received is a line to say that Mr Howell will deal with  the letter of 23rd May on his return.  This is certainly not the way to handle a complaint as seen in our protocols and procedures.

Dear Mr Howell,

This letter is an official complaint and should be treated as one.

In over 4 years you have not taken any action to stop the abuse, by the system, and others, of my patient. You were clearly informed by a series of letters and e-mails as the situation went steadily from bad to worse.

I have informed you of significant problems on the insurance and legal worlds. I have clearly shown why and how I diagnosed this child and with scientific back-up. I told you how the abuse was done, and by whom. I highlighted these problems in my CPD (refused) and covering letter 2013/2014.

Your back-up on simple things like right to diagnose and advance the profession would have made significant improvements to my patients’ lives. I would have had a voice and could then not have been ignored. All so that you can downgrade the profession further.

My complaint is about Jamie Button who obviously did not show you your mandatory obligations. It has to be his responsibility as he sends them around the profession. Either he is incompetent, or you and he decided not to act on them, or you were told and ignored them.

Awaiting your response.

Howard Lamb

From: Lamb Chiropractic Clinic  Sent: 06 June 2016 13:40 To: ‘Jamie Button’ Subject: CPD response and attached letter for Mr Howell

Dear Jamie,

Please accept my CPD as you have received it, add my 2 letters of complaint to David, and my third which you have received, and hard copy to follow, proof for the record.

Once the complaint procedures are complete I am sure my CPD will be seen as helping my patients and advancing the profession, and will be accepted.

My case should be adjourned until such time as the serious complaints against the GCC and its staff have been fully investigated by the correct authorities.

If you have a problem with this, please let me know before your arbitrary deadline.

Yours sincerely,

Howard Lamb

Dear Mr Howell,

Thank you for your prompt response. You have not stated, for the record, that you are protecting our Doctorates and advancing the profession. Obviously you can’t because history clearly shows that you are not, and have not done so. As you have not taken up the role of advancing our profession, I find it difficult to understand why you have refused my CPD. Obviously again, if you are and have not done your job as shown in the Chiropractic Act, we must do it ourselves and as such must be CPD eligible. Having someone in charge who has not done their job and has the power to throw me out of the profession cannot be right. I am still waiting on your chiropractic expert who would know whether my CPD is about advancing the profession or not.

This is censorship, and as such I must make another formal complaint about you and your handling of this situation. Please send details of your complaints procedure to Paul Gardener. I will take his advice as to whether to change my CPD and advance my work for the Court of Human Rights by involving the Privy Council who are ultimately responsible for your actions.

Your belated understanding of disabilities legislation is appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Howard Lamb

Dear Mr Howell,

I believe that you and Mr Button were clearly informed (13/14 CPD rejected plus letter) about child abuse and did not fulfil your mandatory obligation. You shirked your responsibilities by deferring to the local ombudsman whose final report I have just read. It would seem that the Council is at fault over some relatively minor mal-administration. This has not solved the family’s problem and has left me severely out of pocket with probably damage to my reputation.

I believe that you have been potentially criminally negligent due to not fulfilling your role as a regulator.

Potential breeches:

1). Duty of care.

2). Support for diagnosis as stated on page 1 of the Chiropractic Act.

3). Non-compliance to mandatory obligations regarding child abuse and fraud.

4). Freedom of Information Act.

5). Transparency Act.

6). Disabilities Act.

7) Non-compliance with advancement of the profession as set out in the Chiropractic Act.

I am sure that in time you will hear from the family regarding their costs and damages, which I hold you responsible for. Over the next few weeks I will be instructing, after comprehensive advice, a solicitor to contact you. By then I will have decided whether to go down the route of judicial review, High Court or civil litigation, criminal law or compensation.

This letter can be seen as enacting your complaints procedure, if you have one. I assume that you are not protected by legislation, as I believe the army is. Please can you let Paul Gardener know if you are, otherwise send details of your insurers. I believe that you have 2 weeks to reply as in our code of practice, etc.

Yours sincerely,

Howard Lamb,

DC
