Email Response To Panorama I Want My Baby Back


Following on from the recent panorama program I Want My Baby Back, there are further considerations that need to be looked into.

Following on from the recent panorama program I Want My Baby Back, there are further considerations that need to be looked into.

1: Why would a parent seek medical attention if they have injured their child?

2: Why if a baby has a fracture that it is instantly assumed that the parents have injured the child?

3: Why don’t hospitals carryout exhaustive tests to rule out non accidental injury?

4: Why are non-accidental injuries reported mostly in babies?

5: Why are the same experts used time and time again, and nearly always report in favour of the social services?

6: How can experts who asked for their opinion form the opinion of abuse, when they have never met or assessed the child’s injuries?

7: What are the diagnostic criteria for identifying non accidental injury?

8: Do expert use up to date and best available evidence?

9: Why are parents with NO previous contact with social services and with no previous concerns about their parenting instantly become perpetrators?

10: Why do social services take healthy babies from loving caring parents, where there is no history of abuse, neglect?

11: Social workers and guardians are not medically trained, how can they give an opinion of the physical and emotional/mental health of parents and children?

12: Why are parents prevented from seeking their own medical opinion?

13: Why are parents prevented from seeking a differential diagnosis?

14: Why are parents deemed to be a risk if they don’t accept the judge’s findings?

15: Why would parents accept the judge’s findings if they have not harmed their child?

16: Why are all avenues to keep parents and child together never explored?

17: Why are the extended family made out to be unreliable and unsuitable when they attempt to question and challenge social workers?

18: Why are extended family kept out of proceedings, from contact visits and from putting themselves forward as carers?

19: Why are children placed with complete strangers in foster care, why are they not placed with relatives who love them and who they know?

20: Why is placing children into foster care with complete strangers not deemed to be emotional abuse?

21: Why is risk of future emotional harm used to remove children where there is no evidence of previous emotional harm?

22: Why are parent’s pasts used to justify removing children in the present day?

23: Why are the same methods used from one end of the country to another to remove children?

24: Who writes the policy on child protection, removal of children, etc?

25: Why when there is overwhelming evidence that the parents are loving and available parents, that this is completely overlooked, ignored and kept from court judges.

26: Why are local authorities allowed to use the tax payers money, have unlimited funds and resources whilst parents are not afforded equal parity?

  1. I AM SICK OF ALL OF US WHO WRITE ON THIS WEBSITE. Allow me to ask EACH of YOU a QUESTION. HOW MANY of you have written to the CABINET of the Current Government of England ?.
    PLEASE take the time to WRITE a LETTER to the lot of them. The names of the Cabinet are easily available on the Internet. BRIEFLY tell them of what the SS has done to you by their CORRUPTION.
    ALL letters to the House of Commons are FREEPOST no stamp required.
    WHO will even respond to my post, never mind writing letters to the CABINET.

    1. You rant about this all over Facebook too, every one is doing everything they can, including writing to cabinet members, in fact we did a complete merge to every MP in the country, most just write back to say they’ll look at it and don’t, the rest don’t answer.

      There is also the problem of parents who speak to MP’s having their contact stopped as a punishment, you cannot blame them for agreeing not to speak to MP’s and losing the little time they have with theirt children

  2. Why are parents put through all these assessments? Why not only the “one” over which they have concern for?

    SW should be put through Psychiatric Assessment before employed as SW. Every SW should be qualified prior to their employment.

  4. The logical extension of this is that parents will start to think twice about taking their children to hospital for fear this might happen to them. What a terrifying prospect. I agree courts exclude evidence and families from decision making and inexperienced social workers without any credibility are making the most horrifying recommendations. Wider family must be involved. The adoption process is flawed too. It is cruel and should be the last resort where there are family members or indeed families willing to care for these children. Not enough care is taken over evidence and legal aid is abysmal. This government is destroying democracy by reducing legal aid. Burden of proof is limited. Local Authority finds money to go to court but not support these parents.

    1. You are so right, parents are already reluctant to take their children to hospital as they know what is happening, they also know the first question that is asked is ‘is there a social worker involved?’
      Parents are afraid to seek medical help, and it is the system that has created that fear

  6. ALL of the above questions ought to be the subject of a serious MAJOR enquiry into Social Services! Half of the people who work for Social services are not even qualified and are so under pressure they make random irrational decisions. Something needs to be done to help these people in the programme who are “CLEARLY” INNOCENT! I have 3 children and watching the programme was the most disturbing and heartbreaking thing I have ever seen. PLEASE save these babies and reunite them with their REAL parents were they BELONG!

    1. SUE. The answer is very simple. The shareholders need the money that can be generated by taking children directly to their friends or associates. That is why the extended FAMILY are excluded from day of the process.

    1. Totally agree! Now this programme has exposed SOCIAL SERVICES for what they really are, there NEEDS to be a major enquiry starting with the 4 families affected in the programme as they were brave enough to come forward. My heart breaks for the couple Sarah and Paul who have known their son for 4yrs and he knows them as Mummy and Daddy now he has been abusively wrenched from this obviously loving family!! This is a disgrace!!

  8. How come doctors can give their opinion on a reported accident when they are not forensic accident experts and so have no sense to analyse the contributing factors of an accident.

    Why doctors continue to reject a consistent explanation from many different parents for a similar injury? Why they not use this data to get the things right.

    I found 9 other cases where parents reported similar mechanism of injury for similar injuries in result of an accident, yet doctors continue to reject parent’s explanation rather then co-relate them with each other to seek the medical truth.

  10. My grandson hit his younger brother over the head with a plastic toy hammer now both the boys and there sister are in foster care waiting adoption even though there is family to take care of them. In court they tried to say my daughter in law had done it as she never bonded with this son. There was no reason for the other 2 to be taken from them and the one that was hurt has a home with me and his aunty just waiting for him. Instead if the government paying the ss bonuses to put children up for a adoption put the money into helping these parents keep there children. The police have said there is no case to answer. The only mistake they made was taking him to school after it had happened.

  11. If there are fractures on a child then why the child is given to novice foster carer and not hospitalized
    Two independent expert opinions should be sought by the courts
    Why are non-accidental injuries reported mostly in babies
    Why are criminal charges not brought against parents (this is too risky to say: if wrongful adoption of children takes place then parents could also be wrongfully imprisoned)
    Two Medical Experts should take on the responsibility of advising the courts directly and should be involved in the case reviews etc
    Why do social workers analyse the reports on medical opinions when they are not the experts on the case
    Report from the family GP, health visitor, should also be sought independently
    Parents’ medical history should be reviewed thoroughly for any hereditary causes
    Questionnaires should be sent to immediate family members (at least the grandparents) with a list of possible hereditary causes

  12. When to suspect child maltreatment NICE clinical guideline 89
    4 Research recommendations
    The Guideline Development Group has made the following recommendations for research,
    based on its review of evidence, to improve NICE guidance and patient care in the future. The
    Guideline Development Group’s full set of research recommendations is detailed in the full
    guideline (see section 5).
    4.1 Fractures
    How can abusive fractures be differentiated from those resulting from conditions that lead to
    bone fragility and those resulting from accidents, particularly in relation to metaphyseal
    fractures?
    Why this is important
    The existing evidence base does not fully account for the features that differentiate fractures
    from different causes in infants and pre-school age children. A prospective comparative study of
    fractures in physical abuse, those resulting from conditions that lead to bone fragility and those
    resulting from accidental trauma would help address this question. Any such study should
    encompass a study of metaphyseal fractures.

    Evidence from one systematic review and five additional studies showed that fractures in
    children can be indicative of maltreatment. These studies confirmed that children younger than
    18 months are at a heightened risk of sustaining a fracture from physical abuse. No one fracture
    is characteristic of physical abuse. The probability that fractures are due to maltreatment is
    increased where multiple fractures are present or the child is yet to gain independent mobility.
    However, the available evidence from observational studies is inherently open to bias and
    reported confidence intervals are likely to greatly underestimate the true variance. There are
    very few comparative data on metaphyseal fractures or fractures other than ribs, long bones or
    skull fractures.
    There was consensus within the GDG about the recommendations in this section and thus the
    views of the Delphi panel were not sought.
    Recommendations on fractures
    Suspect* child maltreatment if a child has one or more fractures in the absence of a medical
    condition that predisposes to fragile bones (for example, osteogenesis imperfecta, osteopenia
    of prematurity) or if the explanation is absent or unsuitable.* Presentations include:
    • fractures of different ages
    • X-ray evidence of occult fractures (fractures identified on X-rays that were not clinically
    evident). For example, rib fractures in infants.
    Research recommendation on fractures
    How can abusive fractures be differentiated from those resulting from conditions that lead to
    bone fragility and those resulting from accidents, particularly in relation to metaphyseal
    fractures?
    Why this is important
    The existing evidence base does not fully account for the features that differentiate fractures
    from different causes in infants and pre-school age children. A prospective comparative study
    of fractures in physical abuse, those resulting from conditions that lead to bone fragility and
    those resulting from accidental trauma would help address this question. Any such study
    should encompass a study of metaphyseal fractures.

    Why is this guidance being largely ignored?
