Response from health professional to request for evidence of injuries/condition consistent with domestic violence
This example letter has been designed by the Ministry of Justice to be used by doctors (including GPs), nurses, midwives, practitioner psychologists & health visitors (or, in the examining health professional’s absence, another health professional who has access to the applicant’s medical records), when responding to requests for evidence of injuries or condition consistent with domestic violence.

Information required is highlighted and instructions are italicised. Please delete any unnecessary text and instructions (including this introduction) before sending.

HEADED LETTER [Please can you ensure that the letter is on headed paper from the surgery or hospital where the doctor, nurse, practitioner psychologist, health visitor or midwife practises.]

Dear [Insert name of addressee],

Name of applicant: [Name of applicant]

I understand that [APPLICANT’S NAME] (‘the Applicant’) wishes to access legal aid for a family dispute as a victim of domestic violence. For this reason I have been asked to provide a letter in accordance with regulation 33 of the Civil Legal Aid (Procedure) Regulations 2012.

Accordingly I can confirm that the Applicant presented [himself/herself] to me [insert relevant health professional’s name] on the [DATE WHEN CONSULTATION OCCURRED] (being within 24 months prior to the Applicant’s intended application for legal aid). After examining them I [insert relevant health professional’s name] was satisfied that the [injuries [and/or] condition] that the Applicant presented me [insert relevant health professional’s name] were consistent with domestic violence.

I understand that the Ministry of Justice and the Legal Aid Agency recognise that the great majority of physical injuries and many non-physical conditions could be caused by domestic violence.

I understand that this evidence is only required for a decision on whether or not to grant legal aid – it is not designed to prove domestic violence in the context of a criminal or civil court case.

The applicant has confirmed that the [injuries/condition] that [he/she] presented to me [insert relevant health professional’s name] with on [date of consultation] were caused by domestic violence.

Yours sincerely,

[Sign]

Sistum Change – Crowdfund the machinery for Balancing Gender


Sistum – a Human Rights cored system that brings gender to the fore in order that balance can achieved

As children we learn what we learn.

As adults we act using what we have learnt.

Often we find out our ways are not right for today’s world… many times regarding gender.

Whatever is not right holds us back, or drives us forwards in directions that are not what we would choose without the ‘whatever’. We need an answer that works in order that we can move on in our own direction.

Can we use Artificial Intelligence to help us with this?

You can only work with what you’ve got…

A bad phone call is a bad phone call.

Scratchy patchy fuzzy sounding. To any local court it might be the very call that should have convicted a rapist, but didn’t.

With this kit behind the victim that call would have been analysed by technology used by governments, hospitals, research laboratories. What could end up being presented at court, with the full weight of high level analytics is a recording that takes the rapist out of circulation whilst restoring some honor to the victim.

This kit can be designed with a powerful open front end. All the user has to do is start talking, or shouting, or screaming… if the input from that user is unexpected then the technology being focused on that input ramps up too.

So, if the user speaks calmly in the expected dialect with a ‘normal’ taxonomy then standard technology like Nina from Nuance or Voxeo’s Prophesy can easily handle not only what is being said but in many cases know how to handle that command directly.

However if it is someone shouting in Swahili in the middle of rural Wales then Autonomy and it’s language independence jumps into play – it can focus down to the root of the language based on phonemes so it can even get a measure of understanding even if the language itself isn’t one that has been optimized. By asking a few more questions based on the words inputted the system then knows what it needs to do. Something or nothing.

Real-time analysis has been going on from the start of the conversation. If there is panic, fear even terror in the sounds being analysed then focusing in on the source of that call is set in motion, If the words ‘Police’ or ‘HELP’ or any other recognizable cry for help in any language then the emergency services are alerted with as many details as possible – if they need to connect in with the call they can easily do so – all of this is fully recorded.

Until the ‘victim’ or client has been restored to equilibrium the kit keep the case as live. Nothing can stop the kit from interfering to make sure all has been handled properly regarding resolution of the initial problem, and any other problems triggered by the event, whatever it was. We expect change in our lives, even though we might not like it, we expect disasters of one kind or another to change our lives too, however there are some events that happen that should be helped with and sorted out so the scarring and damage don’t rule the whole of the rest of someone’s, or some groups, lives.

So this kit not only anchors the incident, only letting go when the incident is resolved, but it also actively works on that incident with all the tools that incident needs for its resolution.

This is not a purely mechanical digital setup. People add their own input and can allow that input to be used as answers for someone else’s input. Obviously a lot of the answers will come from output already there on the web and in different libraries of all sorts of user useful information. Only by asking a question will the kit know where to look and eventually find an answer, if there is one. People are used where people can add that wisdom or knowledge or experience that a solution needs. So where the machinery fails the task is handed over to humans to re define the parameters of the first conversation and find a satisfactory answer, if there is one.

The better the fidelity of the call the more information can be gleaned more speedily, for the benefit of the client.

As with ‘the more ‘normal’ the client’s voice and word useage the better and easier the fulfilling of the mission so it is with higher quality sound input.

But it is also different in that with higher quality sound there is more that can be run successfully on the input in order to find out immeasurably more about the client, their state of mind, of health, of well being. That data from that input and successive inputs is refined until a highly accurate profile is helping the client to better achieve their own goals.

…whilst also helping with those problem days or those problem moments… which is where this kit covers itself financially so that it can then do an amazingly cheap job of helping sort out distress and the like.

Unless you just get the major players to install this at their own expense so that from soon onwards we can all have this kit and all it’s possible help tools as part of our everyday lives.

Autonomy (Cambridge) said “YES” from 2004 to 2012


Autonomy (Cambridge) said “YES” from 2004 to 2012

They agreed to build this (from 2004) because they liked it and because their technology could do it

The last time they said yes to building it was in December 2012

The idea behind “projectbrainsaver / hightechheadhelper / TellYourPhone / HeadHelp.Me

The use of language independent Meaning Based Computing technology from HP Autonomy.com and other industry Standard, Best Quality, technology from companies such as Nuance, Voxeo, IBM, etc., coupled with voice biometrics, voice stress analysis and personal profiling to enable an individual to more accurately understand their own (or group’s) problems, needs, wants and desires and then help them find better answers, directions, connections, etc., in order to achieve the results needed for that individual’s (or group’s) benefit.”

It wasn’t just Autonomy that liked the idea

Representatives, and private individuals, from companies, groups and NGO’s as diverse as IBM, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Gwynedd County Council, Gaia Technologies, S.A.L.T. Bangor, Telstra, Conexant, 451 Group, UNICT Task Force, WSIS, ITU, Telecentre.org, Nuance, Neighbourhood Watch,

The police, Travellers, Craftspeople, computer programmers, network engineers, accountants, professors (in fact people from all walks of life)……….

I talked with people with memory problems, and their carers if they had one, or more

https://sites.google.com/a/projectbrainsaver.com/front/

I researched and read over 11,000 PDF files withing the first few years ( don’t know what the count is now)

 

£400,000+

That’s how much a trial will cost, or there abouts.

20,000 all putting in £20 crowd funding maybe – most of this is handed to Autonomy to configure and run the trial.

NOTE: ANYONE can hand Autonomy the money and have the trial up and running – Please do! It’s all built with off-the-shelf components. Decide your use, pull together your HL Scoping doc and get building! They know what to do.

I want this for disasters and for personal distress, you can have it for whatever you want it for.

IF ANY OF YOU ARE ALREADY RUNNING KIT LIKE THIS THAT DOES WHAT THE GRAPHIC SAYS PLEASE LET ME KNOW

I started looking at the need for this because of Rwanda 2002, Thomas Hamilton, Dunblaine, Columbine and my friends who committed suicide when everyone thought they were just ‘a bit down’… and for Shapelle Corby, for the Janice Sharps of this World, for Leonard Peltier and all original people and any and all fights between single individuals and governments, corporations etc., in fact any injustice or ‘head bang’ that needs sorting out sooner, rather than later
