MadCovid are proud to be working as a part of the StopSIM Coalition. We stand in solidarity with survivors, service users and allies who have worked tirelessly to bring this scandal to light.
We call on NHS England to:
- Halt the rollout and delivery of SIM with immediate effect, as well as interventions operating under a different name, which are associated with the High Intensity Network (HIN).
- Conduct an independent review and evaluation of SIM in regards to its evidence base, safety, legality, ethics, governance and acceptability to service users.
- Respond to the StopSIM Coalition statement within 7 days to communicate the actions taken by NHS England. Communications should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
