My brother was admitted to the Bosworth ward , initially as a family we were reassured about my brothers treatment . However after the first week we became concerned that during our visits there was no improvement with my brother and regularly fed this back to the ward. It was very difficult to maintain any continuity and despite leaving several messages for my brothers assigned nurse to call us this never happened. My brother was only seen by a doctor once a week and the staff advised us as my brother was polite and compliant that they didn't see him displaying his " paranoid and agitated behaviour " , and so after a couple of weeks he's now been allowed to discharge himself .... Amazing as previous doctor had sectioned him !! My brother is now been discharged with a care package , if it's as good as the care on the ward then once again it's a waste of time . If you have a friend or family member suffering with mental illness .... Don't bother sending them to this unit as it's useless !!
