I went to A&E in Lincoln where the hips/crisis team are based. I asked the doctor to see them as that is what I got told to do. The doctor when I saw him told me he would not get them to see me unless I needed admitting onto the acute psychiatric ward. The doctor was not as far I am aware trained in mental health sent me away, refusing me the crisis team. I left the hospital having to ring the crisis team. They had to come out and get me and then admitted me to the ward. Am trying to say the doctors and nurses I met could have tipped me over the edge by refusing me the help I needed. In my opinion the way some A&E staff treat mental health patients most definitely needs to be looked into. I intend to make a formal complaint against the hospital.
