My Ex-Husband (I am his next of kin) has chronic mental health problems. He has just been a voluntary in-patient for 11 nights at Lynfield Mount, Bradford. It is his first experience as an in-patient.
Tonight, however, he is sleeping in his car, rather than stay on Oakburn Ward. The ward was dirty, and stayed dirty, even when 'spills' were reported.
The way some staff treat/speak to patients is disgusting. There are NO facilities for patients to have any sustained rest/sleep/respite, because of constant noise night & day. Some staff are not just abrupt, but in my view they treat patients like something that they have stood on.
My Ex, currently has nowhere to go or sleep and has been let down by every authority going. Mental health care in Bradford stinks to high heaven!
