REVEALED: HOW STAFFORDSHIRE SOCIAL CARE HIRED A CHILD PSYCHIATRIST FACING GMC INVESTIGATION AT £8500 A WEEK

Child psychiatrist George Hibbert is undergoing a formal General Medical Council Inquiry while being employed by Staffs Social Services.
Yet another reason why the people of Staffordshire are asking if there’s anything behind the slick social care logo (left)

Thanks to a ludicrous gagging order, this is an odd story because I can’t tell you the name of the victim of what I’m revealing:a heartless scam made possible by social care negligence.

Staffordshire Social Care (yes, it’s the capital of collapsing services again) uses the services of one George Hibbert – a psychiatrist located handily in Swindon. Dr Hibbert and his live-in partner Jill Canvin have an interesting past.

As the Guardian reported (16.8.2001) the couple tried with other promoters to launch GW Pharmaceuticals, a firm developing drugs from cannabis, onto the market.
GW was supported prior to its £175m flotation in June 2001 by a list of prominent people, many of whom saw the value of their investments surge five-fold in the public offering. GW’s flotation infuriated analysts and fund managers, who claim the offering was hyped and over-priced. Immediately after the flotation, shares in GW went into freefall as investors dumped stock.
“Hibbert did well out of it” a well-placed legal source told us yesterday. Investors didn’t.

George Hibbert is also doing well out of Broken Britain. He has a lucrative contract with Staffordshire Social Services: they send him lots of mothers (who’ve had their children removed and put into care) and he spends four to six weeks ‘assessing’ them. For this he is paid, on average, £8,500 a week.

The thing is, his assessments tend to suggest the ‘patients’ have conditions requiring ‘treatment’…at his clinic. One victim of this system – who can’t be named thanks to gagging orders – alleges:

“He told the social I was bipolar, which is rubbish. I discharged myself and got a second opinion from Stafford Mother & Baby Unit. They said the bipolar diagnosis was totally without foundation.”

The two psychiatrists refuting Hibbert’s diagnosis were Drs Singh and Hofberg. In the light of this outcome, a GMC investigation into Hibbert’s activities has begun. The Slog contacted the GMC earlier this week, and was given a ‘we can neither confirm nor deny Dr Hibbert’s fitness to practice’. But other sources confirm that he is indeed under formal GMC scrutiny: the inquiry reference number is ME/C1-205725548, and the investigating officer is Mark Elliot.

Environmental Law campaigner Dr Karta Badshar confirms the widely-held doubts about George Hibbert:

“He’s making a fortune out of this,” he alleged, “when there is often nothing wrong with these patients. He is also using cheap immigrant labour at his clinic, rather than properly qualified people. But you see, this can all be covered up because of the unhealthily incestuous relationship between social workers and judges. It is a scandal”.

The Guardian (like the Slog) has been hammering away at Staffs Social Care incompetence for some years. One spectacular example from their pages in 2004 recorded how the authority had to:

‘….set up a £10,000 trust fund for her. Staffordshire county council is to take the unusual step on the recommendation of the local government ombudsman, who today finds the authority guilty of maladministration causing injustice to the girl, now 16…’

And as for Jill Canvin…she is (guess what) a solicitor specialising in childcare. A source who (again) cannot be named alleged on Wednesday this week:

“She turned up for a meeting as a supposedly objective legal person. Nobody know she was Hibbert’s girlfriend”.

Ms Calvin is (we were told by her pa Tuesday last) ‘moving on’. In rather a hurry, and far too much of a hurry to return five calls made to her offices by The Slogger over three days. George Hibbert also refused to answer our calls.

Next in the saga: This is not an isolated case. How judges collude with ‘Social Worker Law’, and why their role should be reformed.

  1. Reading this is not good for my blood pressure. I get angrier and angrier at the way these people hurt and rip us off. There appears to be almost no end to the skulduggery and underhand dealings surrounding this council.

  2. Nothing surprises me with these people anymore, least of all Staffordshire. They are one of the worst authorities in the UK. The so-called Independent Expert Witness system used in care proceedings is one of the most corrupt ever. The reports and assessments simply would not stand up in criminal court yet the judges in the family courts accept them as gospel in care proceedings, and I ask why? This is all about obtaining children for monetary gian, yes monetary gain. Social Services pay out hundreds of thousands of pounds to these (highly questionable) so-called experts, many of whom do not have the correct qualifications nor experience to deal with the assessments they are being asked to carry out. Is it any wonder then that the family courts refuse and obstruct treating healthcare teams from providing corroborative reports to the courts to enable the court to have accurate and up to date information on the parents current state of health. Why on earth would they do this you ask, yet again it would not look good to a judge if they were presented with conflicitng information to that which the social services are presenting, as the judge would then have to either strike the case out of court, go to finding of fact hearings or make a lesser order, i.e a supervision order and the social services would not get the children they so desperatley need to fulfill best value performance indicators, which also secures them the hundreds of thousands of pounds of extra government funding.

  3. This does not suprise me at all and the 'comfortable' relation ship between the SS and 'experts' is not confined to just this LA.People need to challenge these relationships.We have just won a high court case against the SS but they are still protected from being brought to account.

  4. I had the unfortunate experience of a corrupt Guardian Ad Litem and Judge very recently, in conjunction with them a (clearly) corrupt expert witness (Psychologist) who was described as eminent (far from!!) and have been dealt a bad set of cards from our so called Childrens Court. This system is a disgrace and reform needs to be lobbied as a matter of urgency. Families and mothers desperate to keep their much loved children are emigrating to save themselves the pain and heartache of losing their children WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO OUR COUNTRY???? I sat in disbelief listening to these so called professionals making a Judgement on my case knowing it was, and you wouldnt believe me if I tell you but I will, personal!! It had nothing to do with the protection of children but merely because I insisted on my childrens Human rights, and that is the right of a fair hearing to protect them now and in the future, yes, Stupidly I dared to have a voice and use it to protect those I gave birth to. I hasten to add at this point I do not have a lunatic Batman scaling Big Ben screaming for his rights he would not want his dirty laundry aired so he uses the silence of Childrens Court to further abuse us and he is allowed to do this.Someone must help us.xx

  5. Kent is corrupt to the very core , rampant with common purpose graduates ,with a special interst in childrens services.Peter Gilroy chief executive is a psychiatric social worker and common purpose speaker; fully protected by Paul Carter Tory leader who is also known for being less than truth about the services provided to families.KCC even denied a guardian by the name of Amanda Barden had previously worked for them as a social worker.No independence in the rubber stamping Kent secret family courts.
