Abolish Leucotomy/Lobotomy Operations in the UK

Leucotomy/Lobotomy Operations have been outlawed in much of Europe and few have been performed in the UK since 1999.  There is no scientific basis for their continuation; they are barbaric and an embarrassment to the medical profession and have been rebranded as NSMD Neurosurgery for Mental Disorder.  The operation involves the destruction of healthy brain tissue to address such mental distress as depression, anxiety and more recently and of great concern, obsessive compulsive disorder.  I would like to see the operation outlawed in the Uk, giving greater preference to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, the only talking therapy with empirical research to prove its efficacy.  MIND, the Mental Health Charity, have been campaigning for some years for leucotomy/lobotomy operations to be outlawed.

administration of medicine without requiring consent – urgent

Side effects mental health treatment take for granted are inhumane; the dose that gives these hyperawful effects is administrated without requiring the patients permission.

Permission should always be required; patients' opinions of their medication should be respectfully acknowledged and requests for lesser dosage should be obeyed without exception.

Minds will take preventative measures to outdo critical physical health, adverse onsets of debilitating mental states, and can and do include accident preventions.

In the mind, dimensions are 'yesterday and censured memory-banks', and also 'tomorrow and possibility'; when critical eruption of reason and emotions are within possibility the brain recognises a logic having emergency measures and initiates supreme proxy; homes each ration enough secure ID.

Remove the difficulties in obtaining coproxamol

My doctor will no longer prescribe coproxamol for me, despite having taken it for 35 years, because NICE has decided that it can be used to commit suicide.  Due to medical conditions I cannot take any other painkillers so I just have to "grin and bear it"  I can go to any supermarket and buy paracetamol or aspirin which certainly would kill me, but because my GP is not prepared to take responsibility for writing a prescription saying that "NICE has said no"  I, and countless others, have to suffer.  I have absolutely no intention of taking my life, so please repeal this ruling and allow me to enjoy my life again.
