"Mental Health Services"

About: NHS Partnership Trust

(as a friend),

I would like to mention how dissatisfied I am at the treatment of people within Community Mental Health Services in Foundation House recently. I would like to point out there has been no response to a letter of what I think was quite a serious situation of a person who attempted suicide by hanging in March. No follow-up in community and inadequate care/support offered, well actually nothing offered.

Inadequate assessment leaving the person walking out wearing nothing but a nightie, enabling her to walk about the towns/streets of Taunton, unaware of making herself home safely, being found by police heading for the motorways some hours later. Is this the attitude of the caring NHS in Somerset; if so its unacceptable. Does it not amount to neglect? Even so it would be good to have had a reply at the very least, as they boast to be caring, honest and willing to be transparent, but this is not even achievable within their scope. Still awaiting a reply from them after 8 weeks of waiting.
