The following emails, released by the Home Office (from a Freedom Of Information request), are between Dr David Bulpitt of Avon and Somerset police and the Home Office. They reveal an insight into his thoughts regarding injured officers.
This doctor is from the same force as the PCC (Sue Mountstevens) who wrote a letter three years ago, again to the Home Office, complaining that retired injured on duty police officers serve no benefit to the people of Avon and Somerset.
We are deeply concerned and horrified that a doctor who, according to the GMC good medical practice, should show respect, treat patients and colleagues fairly and without discrimination and act with honesty and integrity, could write something with such disregard about his patients – who happen to be injured police officers.
it is crazy to have the GMC overseeing the work to the SMP and insisting that the pensioner is our patient and that we must put their interests first?
IODPA are alarmed that a person who is a highly qualified doctor and whom is employed by a police force to take care of the physical and mental health of serving and retired police officers should have such a blatant indifference to his patients.
In our belief he has shown no concern for people who have been medically retired; their lives, physical, psychological, emotional, and social state are cruely dismissed.
By intentionally dehumanising individuals his paramount fealty seems to be to the force finances.
An opinion piece on this will follow soon.
