I confirm that the grounds of appeal are attached to this Notice
Section 11 Evidence in support of my application:
I as the Claimant, suffered from autism for most of my adult life, being a slow learner from my childhood when I could only manage Grades E, E, C, E, E, at Ordinary level, B, C, D at Advanced level, and a 2,I BSc degree. But I was hyperactive physically and mentally was a compulsive writer as your Honour will note from my scientific papers since totalling 35 when employed at the Natural Resources Institute; and my websites and the 11 books that I have written this summer that are published by Lulu Publishing Company.
This autistic behaviour was detected by Canada House Community Mental Health Institution 18 months ago and funding for out of area assessment sanctioned by the Medway Clinical Commissioning Group. Yet my Consultant Psychiatrists kept on misdiagnosing me as suffering from persistent delusional disorder and lately as paranoid schizophrenia for which anti-psychotic, anti-depressant and mood-stabilising medications that I do not need continue to be prescribed. Without the appropriate confirmation of my medical status I must have a new Trial to assess my damages and compensation claim against the National Health Service of £1 million for two spells of mental hospital confinement under Sectioning and the Care in the Community semi-detention since that have blighted my life. This is why I sought adjournment of the 21 June 2021 Hearing which was said prior to the Hearing to be a Pre-Trial Hearing for a Circuit Judge and not a Costs assessment Hearing for the Claimant or the Defendant from a District Judge. The Pre-Trial Hearing was to assess the forensic elements of my conduct over the past 24 years I was led to believe for I had been examined by a Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist Michael Kingham.
Notwithstanding we are where we are, and as things stand today, despite protests from my wife and me to Britton House I was twice discharged back into primary care but kept on enforced medications of risperidone, sertraline and depakote. I was not sent to Maudsley Hospital for autism confirmation because they require childhood data and we do not have anyone who knows my childhood story to come forth and give evidence to the Hospital to confirm or deny that I am autistic.
Hence, in this Appeal against District Judge Lightman's Order I am challenging his decision to award £4170 in Costs to the Defendant, the Cabinet Office which includes the Health Secretary Right Honourable Sajid Javid. The Costs awarded are not only excessive and unjustified, but Costs should be now be awarded to me of £2000 instead on the efforts that I have had to go through with the numerous emails that I have sent the Court of Central London since the Order including three n244 Application Notices with a £100 Court Fee, none of which got a satisfactory reply.
The other erring in law of District Judge Lightman judgement is that I interpret this Order of 21 June 2021 as being the first time that a Judgment has been explicitly made that my Claim E35YM660 was struck out by the original judge in January 2018 (Deputy District Judge Smith), who had given the Claimant 14 days to lodge the fuller particulars of Claim, and I had insisted to successive judges from HHHJ Backhous,, HHJ Letham and HHJ Parfitt that these time allocation were not sufficient for reasons cited above. The Claimant did not attend the Hearing of 21 June 2021 for duplicitous emails were bombarded into his email account that morning for which he had to seek the advice of his GP at the Surgery and a referral back to the Community Mental Health Team on a crisis-level emergency. The response of the Mental Health Team was abysmal and so were the Samaritans and later the Citizens Advice Bureau.
