Human Rights Abused in Social Care and NHS (UK)

Human rights abused in social care and NHS
24 November 2008
By Daniel Lombard

Vulnerable people are continuing to suffer inhumane treatment in social care and health services, according to a report marking the tenth anniversary of the Human Rights Act.

The British Institute of Human Rights has highlighted cases across the UK where service users felt professionals breached fundamental rights to dignity, privacy, and social inclusion.

Degrading Treatment
In a London nursing home, older people were forced to use wheelchairs regardless of their mobility, while a long-term patient in a mental health hospital was almost denied his wish to marry his partner.

Act 'can change lives'
In the other cases, advocates and consultants raised concerns that key rights were being violated, and the decisions were reversed.
