sex offender with 8 years expired

Customer Question

A registered Irish Uk citizen sex offender with 8 years expired of a 10 year licence, following 12 months in prison. First and only alleged offence 19 years previously. Misdiagnosed by Paramedic to have sciatica but within 24 hours emergency operation on progressive sliped disc which damaged nerves to the point of paralysis in his legs. Emergency operation to repair. Surgeon referred patient to Stoke Mandeville early October. Stoke Mandeville placed patient on waiting list expected to be for 3 weeks. 8 weeks later still no transfer from Colchester hospital. Now told that sex offender status procludes him from treatment. As a result Colchester wish to discharge patient unadapted home accommodation. Q. Is the patient protected by the Human Rights Act, Discrimination Act and the NHS Constitution to receive undiscriminated health care?

Sorry but what treatment is required here?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

He requires rehabilition because he is left with the use of only his right leg. His left leg has minor feeling in it but he cannot move it himself. The surgeon stated he needed specialist rehabilitation. A prognosis cannot be given as to whether he will be able to walk again. Stoke mandeville apparently have the expertise to check the extent of nerve damage and equipment to either mobilise him or teach him how to manage. Stoke mandeville aranged a pre-admission visit to him in his current hospital and a volunteer worker also visited him to tell him what treatment to expect. Since those visits he has been told he cannot be admitted because of his sex offender status.

Is he on the notification register or on the sex offenders programme?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

He is on the notification register not on the sec offenders programme

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.
If this is a just a notification requirement then I'm afraid that it would have no impact upon what treatment can be received. It just wouldn't even be considered.

The most that might happen is that he might have to disclose if he is going to be away from his registered address for several days.

They may not want to admit him to this particular hospital because of the risk to others but they would not deny him treatment on that basis.

If they did then there would be human rights issues.
