"I have followed your blog for some time as this omnishambles progresses and unfolds at alarming speed. It has kept me (almost) sane and up to date on the national picture as no other website has, and I wholeheartedly thank you for that. I take comfort from the comments of all the other professionals in this impossible and, quite frankly, frightening situation.
Amid the ridiculous, preposterous, and seemingly unstoppable plans of the MoJ, I have been doing my best as usual to ‘go the extra mile’ for my Service Users, because that is why I came into the job..............to make a difference!
Today I was informed by my Line Manager that there is to be an audit on NDelusional entries as well as quality of CPJD’s. However he himself had admitted that NDelusional is not fit for purpose. I am exhausted by it all........stressed, anxious, depressed, disrespected, deskilled and disillusioned. How can it be ‘business as usual’? My energy reserves are so depleted that I will expend them where they are most needed...with my offenders.The rest..........meeting cash linked targets etc etc can go and get lost. Demoralised is rather an understatement at this time and I turn my eyes upwards in the hope of help there."
