Obligation to not mislead or evade diagnosis and to provide sufficient detail (FND, MUS, PPS, ‘dysregulation model’ and Long Covid examples)

Risk generation and unnecessary liability accumulation is commonly exacerbated by low and/or prejudicial standards of communication and/or record keeping in ME/CFS and other post-viral disease contexts. False record taking is commonly experienced in this field. Beyond the statutory contexts, the frequent frontline status quo regularly breaches a range of associated General Medical Council (GMC) and…Continue readingObligation to not mislead or evade diagnosis and to provide sufficient detail (FND, MUS, PPS, ‘dysregulation model’ and Long Covid examples)

Irrelevance of official edicts and officialised redistribution of liabilities to frontline balance sheets (vaccination and NICE guideline examples)

Neither obfuscation, incorrect pronouncement nor under-informed lack of clarity from governmental, regulatory/self-regulatory or other authorities can change the law, terminal frontline legal requirements nor resultant liability profiles. All decision-making is unavoidably limited by requirements of law, with the elevated likelihood of unlawful decision-making in this field similarly prejudicing top-down communication. The structural difference is only…Continue readingIrrelevance of official edicts and officialised redistribution of liabilities to frontline balance sheets (vaccination and NICE guideline examples)

Tests of model-dictated eligibility lawfulness (QCovid score example)

Identically, models cannot excuse discrimination that is substantiated in law. The simple clinical judgement lawfulness tests above apply to the lawfulness of model driven decision-making. Replacing the word “clinician” with “model” in the tests arrives at identical conclusions: a priori assumption of ineligibility/insufficient eligibility of ME/CFS patient cohorts or individuals is unlawful. Identically, models cannot…Continue readingTests of model-dictated eligibility lawfulness (QCovid score example)

Illusion of legal authority vs medical law enforcement

Risk management practice in the field ME/CFS and related post-viral disease commonly introduces unmanaged risks and liabilities, due to widespread normalisation of unlawful clinical judgement and prejudicially low standards. This inherently manifests as unlawful suspension of compliance and legal norms. This implies practical disregard for medical law’s status as a field of law, not medicine.…Continue readingIllusion of legal authority vs medical law enforcement

These distortions inherently project chains of risk to third parties, who are incentivised to firewall liabilities at the origin in your organisation. Distortions from unlawful decision-making project chains of risks to third parties, who…Continue readingThird party risk to preceding unlawful clinical judgement (therapeutic and assessment examples)

The prevalence rates are significantly greater where…Continue readingEvaluating duties of care and unmanaged risk exposures

Compromised indemnification, insurance cover nullification and liability for lost income

It is of acute risk management importance to note that any officialised obfuscation or encouragement of unlawful outcomes is not accompanied by implicit indemnification for discrimination, breaches of duties of care or other improper acts. This is in addition to reputational risk and accompanying freedom of information risk. Moreoever, lack/incompleteness of central NHS indemnification in…Continue readingCompromised indemnification, insurance cover nullification and liability for lost income
