Dr Anthony Baker, Abuser, Ashwood Medical Practice

Update 20 Nov 2016 -I have had to replace this post from the backup as it “disappeared”. Please keep copies and spread thanks.

Dr Anthony Baker has been brought to my attention. I am told he has complaints against him of false diagnoses and sexual abuse including child sexual abuse.

drbakerpic

Dr Anthony Baker used to practise from Ashwood Medical Practice, Woking, but there may have been other places.

One such place in the 1980s until it closed in the early 2000’s was St Josephs Centre, Haslemere, Surrey. It was a private treatment centre for alcohol dependency, in a hospital and run by nuns.

[updated 28 Dec 2016] He  has also worked as “Ashwood Associates” and at Hillview Health Centre [22] until December 2016. It is thought he no longer works there, but it is not known where he is working now. Please tell me if you know.

Baker no longer has a licence to practice as a GP, but he still has a specialist licence to practise child and adolescent psychiatry from the General Medical Council from 29 April 2015.  General Medical Council Doctors Register [23]

However it does seem that he needs revalidation every year I think – see if you agree. So if you have a complaint get it in! There are also useful addresses at the end of this article of people who may help.

[end of update]

Where is he working, please let me know!

Despite complaints to the General Medical Council and a months suspension in 2008 [9] he was still allowed to practise and in 2012 he was still being used by several large local authorities, including Kent County Council, to assess children in their care. He also assessed the mental condition of their parents as part of care proceedings. He was visiting professor at Kingston University in Surrey between February 2010 and February 2011 [1] 

As mentioned earlier he still has a specialist licence to practise child and adolescent psychiatry.

A quick internet search reveals examples of Anthony Bakers sordid behaviour.

A – I know him very well. He did the same to me writing to my solicitor saying [wrongly] the same thing I had a personality disorder.
I was in a alcohol treatment clinic in the late 80’s Baker was the director. Years later he denied me being my consultant despite him making a referal to the Cassal hospital in Ham London!!
He should not have a licence to practise he is a bully, arrogrant and a manipulator. Very dangerous indeed.
I have reported him a few times to the GMC the first time he threatened me I would be worse off if I continued with the complaint. In latter years the GMC say my complaint is historic and so cannot be heard!!! [12]

B – I was destroyed by the sexual and psychological abuse of this man as a 15/16 year old girl. I am now 36 and have yet to rebuild my life and that of my family who were also left devastated at his evil hands. This man is a pedophile sex predator and must be brought to justice. I have wanted to bring a civil action against him ever since. If anyone is able to help me to finally do this and find some sort of peace in my life as a result please reach out to me. There must be enough children who have and are suffering at his hands to bring a group action against him? My GMC case against him had an unsatisfactory outcome.[12]

C – This doctor destroyed my life and that if my three sons who were denied their mother. They are now grown up but he did us all damage. We should not allow this to happen we need group action whist he still lives. [12]

D – Cant believe my eyes finding this page, as I had all my life been carrying secrets against this man, and have always wanted to remember him to be able to take up investigation. Im 30 years old having only recently got my files back from social services…finally got his name. Amazed how many other people have been affected. A bad man. My memories are from 9-11 years old, still clear. He needs to be investigated. This is real and numerously acted cases of abuse! [12]

E – For Years They appear to Have Ran A Criminal Racket Whose Victims Were Unsuspecting Parents of Adversaries to Clients Of TWM Solicitors and Others Solicitor Practices. M’s Sister Knew F was Being Stitched Up Before The Report Was Written How Could This Be An Isolated Event? It Appears The Target Behind Dr Baker’s Approach Was To Use The Contact With Children As Blackmail In The Financial Aspects Of Divorce Every Court In England And Wales Relied On Dr Baker He Was Judge And Jury In Every Case He Touched Referred To As “Tony” By Baker J. That Was Until KvK and The Employment By M Of Boodle And Hatfield. The Information Behind The Disclosure Orders Being Sought Since 2012 Will Possibly Lead To Their Arrest And Charging.In K vK The Judiciary Appear To Have Sought To Protect Them. The Allegations, If Upheld By A Jury Represents A Judiciary Acting With Pure Contempt For All Victims And Total And Utter Contempt To Society Why Did 4 High Court Judges Refuse Insight Into The Here And Now That Sat Behind The Disclosure Requests By F??? [6]

F – “Dr Anthony Baker, from Ashwood Medical Practise in Bagshot, falsely diagnosed me with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2003 which resulted in me having my 3 children aged 1, 3 and 5 removed from me through the UK courts. He unethically diagnosed me with Borderline Personality Disorder, when I was never his patient or client. My ex husband was his patient and together they conspired to have me diagnosed and have the children removed. My mother-in-law Diane O’Keefe also worked with him when she worked for Guildford Social Services. It was her that set the two up.
Following the return of the 3 children to me through the Court of Appeal, Dr Baker wrote a
report to say that if I delivered my unborn child, not only would I commit suicide but I
would also kill the baby. Based on that report, and in the absence of evidence from
previous court rulings, the High Court in London made an ex parte ruling to take the 3
children from me once more, on my due date with my 4th child and remove the baby at birth.
The children were taken out of the bath and placed in a police car with no child
restraints, with blue flashing lights. I delivered the baby 2 days later.
The financial cost of me securing the 4 children was half a million pounds through a year in court.”

G – There is even material online that links him to ritual abuse in a wider network [10]

There is more information about Dr Baker in the links at the end of this article.

The Munbygate investigation [6] quotes the unethical clinical advice as the parent “would be diagnosed with a dangerous strain of paranoia needing Freudian analysis and treatment for many years – of course the conclusion would hide the real reasons for divorce (abuse, alcoholism etc) and what was really going on for years in the background and would provide ammunition to frighten the children.”

“Dr Baker, he Got “Fat” Off Divorce whilst his Victims and other victims of this evil fusion of medical and legal professions became drug addicts, alcoholics, or committed or attempted to commit suicide as a result of the mental damage he caused. The evil effects of his exploits are yet to be discovered in full. What is for certain is that he destroyed lives, many lives [6]

Sue O’Callaghan says “Since 2004 parents have contacted me regarding false diagnoses made by Dr Baker, usually Borderline Personality Disorder or Munchausens and always in need of ‘in patient’ therapy.

Interestingly Dr Baker has appeared before the General Medical Council on numerous
occasions. The GMC has declined to release information as to how many times, nor the
outcome of each case. I personally took him to the GMC but he did not even receive a
warning!”

Sue appeals “Anyone with information on Dr Baker please do come forward so we can bring this man to justice.”

Sue had her children taken from her, twice by the Courts. She has written a novel  Taken – The inspirational true story of one mother’s epic win against social services [13]

Her email is Susan.m.ocallaghan@googlemail.com

Unfortunately there are many professionals whose behaviour does not meet the required professional standards and veers into criminal behaviour.

Gerald Walmsley, a GP in Kent, was jailed for three and a half years after being found guilty of abusing women over more than 10 years. The court heard that women had twice gone to the police but had not been believed [2]

Rodney Ledward, the consultant gynaecologist struck off the medical register for incompetent surgery which may have left scores of women injured, was alleged to have frequently made rude and suggestive remarks to patients [2]

A clinical psychologist in Liverpool, Peter Slade, was found guilty of a series of sex assaults but in a controversial decision the British Psychological Society decided not to erase him from the register [2]

Dr John Stevens is an unsavoury character who charged NHS patients money for visits. Daily Mail Doctor suspended for charging elderly man £150 a time for home visits [7]    Exposure it seems apparently only made him go private for Spire Health Care [15]   I am told he has unsavoury friends who also abuse. He is a Freeman of the City of London, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine and ex met Police surgeon! If anyone has any information on him or his friends please contact me on Doctorsabuse2@cathyfox.33mail.com

Doctor John Stephens pictured outside his home in Wheathampstead, Herts. Picture by Damien McFadden

Stephens is still practising with a licence. It seems that the GMC do not hnk that farud on patients is all that big a deal. He is subject to revalidation.

stephens-2There are many more.

Perhaps the first layer of officialdom that the public seek for justice is the professional body of the perpetrator concerned. This is often a false hope. The professional bodies come from a background of representing their members not regulating them. They are concerned with their member and their own reputation not the victim.

As can be seen from the cases of Tony Baker and Rodney Ledward, the General Medical Council were found wanting as was the British Psychological Society in the case of Peter Slade.

The problem becomes even more serious, as seen also with child sexual abuse and forced adoption when there are clusters of incompetence or corruption in and across the professions or systems that we the public rely on for child protection, crime prevention or in the justice system.

The Police failed in the case of Gerald Walmsley above and many cases of child sexual abuse and forced adoption. In many cases they actually help the perpetrators and fit up the whistleblowers  see Child Sexual Abuse Campaigners and Whistleblowers targeted by state organisations [14]

The Anthony Baker case, as do many forced adoption cases, highlights the incompetence or corruption of solicitors and the courts including judges, who for various reasons seek to cover up the initial crimes [6a]

If you have experience of Dr Anthony “Tony” Baker please make the effort to contact Sue on Susan.m.ocallaghan@googlemail.com . It is only together that we can fight the systems that lie to keep us from letting the truth be known.

If you have information on Dr John Stevens or his abusive friends [7] or any doctor, please contact me on Doctorsabuse2@cathyfox.33mail.com

If you have more information about Dr Raymond Colin Birt and abuse please let me know
