One of the coordinators of the book by Mr. Ingleby (2005) was also a coordinator at the Migration, Mental health and social care program in the U. K. The program is mostly concerned with the mental health conditions of the above mentioned population in Britain. Other Programs (Intute, 2007) Edinburgh Mental health Research network. Centre for community Mental Health. Centre for citizenship and community and Mental Health. And many more… Legal implications Mrs. IVY had to wait for a long time before she could avail her social service Benefits? In the case study of Mrs. Ivy, her daughter mentions that initially the social service representatives had requested for a GP, and it was also harshly said that until they get a referral from the GP “the social services won’t get involved”. So after eventually doing what Mrs.

Ivy’s daughter was told to do, she contacted the GP again and they arranged a psychiatrist and a psychologist to visit Mrs. Ivy, this was the time when she was diagnosed with “some form of dementia”. Soon after submitting the GP she realized that Mrs. Ivy had been put on a waiting list and then looking at the deteriorating condition of her mother had to contact a branch of the local Alzheimer’s Society. Implication The legal allegation broken here was through the recently amended Social Services Act (recently amended in 2002).

Since the amendments made in the Social Services Act (Socialstyrelsen, 2002), the victim now has a much greater right to appeal in front of the Social service representative for a quick decision. This right was not used by Mrs. Ivy’s daughter. In the whole case study, it was never mentioned that the waiting by social services had been cleared, not until the time Mrs.

Ivy died. So… How’s this correct or even moral? It is very clear that the social services were not supervising the situation clearly, because doctors could have slowed down the progress of diseases like Alzheimer if it had been detected at the right time. Secondly, neither was any action taken from the regulatory authorities that regulate or supervise social services. Ethical Implications Mrs. Ivy’s Son or Daugher Could have had her Stay with either one of them! Mrs. Ivy was suffering from a worsening mental problem and thus it is clear that she should have had someone to take care for her all the time.

This was a much larger ethical implication than just letting her die. Instead of thinking “Should we force fully feed her or not? ” The doctors, nurses, and primarily her family members should have thought “What is the reason she wants to die? ”.
