Commissioner Mr Lawlor: correspondence with delinquent sub-contractors re their staff

The request was successful.

John Robertson

Dear Southwark Primary Care Trust (PCT),

•About Mr Tony Lawlor,
Mental Health & Substance Misuse Commissioner.

•About Foundation 66
including Alcohol Recovery Project & Rugby House Project.

•About delinquent treatment of staff by the trustees and alcohol service managers of these organisations, demonstrated by high proportions of staff taking them to tribunals: http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/nu...

Please copy documents from Mr Lawlor to Foundation 66 and back showing progress in reducing this delinquent behaviour.

I see on the net that some progress has been made. The organisation now recognises that it provides addiction services and provides staff with related training, which was beyond the pale when I worked for them and indirectly for Mr Lawlor. I do not see whether the delinquents who hounded-out trouble makers by bullying and fiddled facts are still in post, and that is why I think it is in the public interest for time to be taken trawling through correspondence and publishing the results.

For fairness, you may want to publish similar material related to the other funded substance misuse organisations offering day services on Mr Lawlor's funding for taxpayers of Lambeth Lewisham and Southwark.

John Robertson, former ARP employee
on behalf of anyone who wants NHS help or employment related to addictive behaviour in Lambeth Lewisham & Southwark.

Dear Southwark Primary Care Trust (PCT),

I'm looking forward to a reply by the 4th of April.
If there is any problem identifying which documents match the request, then any that have the word "tribunal" in them would do; I could ask the question again in another way after seeing the result.
regards,

John Robertson

PS The reason for asking for this information is that I think no sub-contract third sector agency is likely to perform without some element of staff control, ranging from a rep on the board of trustees to a staff-owned company like Sunderland Care Homes. I think the structure of committees of trustees who appoint their successors and job applicants who sound good to them in interviews and then appoint subordinates the same way is not a good way to help staff of clients of services.

Dear Southwark Primary Care Trust (PCT),
in case the link to tribunal cases does not get to you, this is the gist:

1996-2 Tribunal complaints against ARP
1997-0 Tribunal complaints against ARP
1998-0 Tribunal complaints against ARP
1999-0 Tribunal complaints against ARP
2000-0 Tribunal complaints against ARP
2001-0 Tribunal complaints against ARP
2002-0 Tribunal complaints against ARP
2003-1 Tribunal complaints against ARP
2004-0 Tribunal complaints against ARP
2005-1 Tribunal complaints against ARP
2006-3 Tribunal complaints against ARP
2007-1 Tribunal complaints against ARP
2008-0 Tribunal complaints against ARP

regards,

John Robertson

Dear Southwark Primary Care Trust (PCT),
Please provide the information requested prompty and in any case by 4th of April 2011 under the act.

For clarity, any letter or email from Mr Lawlor to Foundation 66 containing the word "tribunal" would do, sent over the past 10 years or similar period covered by your records.

Yours faithfully,

John Robertson

PS This is a copy of an email I sent directly to Mr Lawlor:

Dear Mr Lawlor

I made a freedom of information act request to Southwark PHT asking for your correspondence with Foundation66 including the word "tribunal".

The deadline is I think the 4th of April.

I just thought I should make contact directly in case the request had not been passed-on to you, or in case you want to ask me directly what it's about.

The gist of it is that I want staff reps on the boards of Foundation66, Cranstoun Project, and Crime Prevention Initiative. Otherwise there will
be people almost self-apointed on merit bullying harassing and playing employment law games against staff who are trying to do a job for patients.
