Just sent another Email to Mary Porter, NHS Fife General Manager, copied in to various NHS Fife others and my MSP Roderick Campbell:
Strapline: Stratheden IPCU May events for public - has a date been arranged? I haven't been informed
I hope that you can enlighten me.
I am not confident of being included, based on past experiences of engaging with management over 5 years and more. I can recall many meetings where I was patronised by both NHS Fife and Fife Council Social Work mental health managers. When trying to be "meaningfully involved".
Prior to this I had been a community education and development worker since 1980, leading and facilitating, working alongside people in various community settings. I wasn't used to being talked down to and treated like a bairn. And so I resisted which resulted in exclusion. Go to your room.
My father used to send me to my room when he thought I was being cheeky, primary school age. He stopped doing it by the time I was a teenager and could look him in the eye. Same height. All grown up. Level playing fields.
