About: Wonford House Wonford House EX2 5AF
I can't be bothered to outline all my complaints about this facility here, I have taken it up with PALS. Suffice to say that one night in the place traumatised me, no one could find the drugs I came in with when I left, although they riffled through cupboards stuffed randomly with plastic bags of medication. Anyway I spent most of my time in A and E as no one inducted me onto the ward so I had nothing to eat or drink and consequently passed out cutting my mouth on the door handle. Nursing in the main hospital was in marked contrast to The Cedars where they all hide in the office. I had a panic attack for 40 mins and staff just ignored me. A doctor told me on leaving that an antidepressant I was taking would work in 2 or 3 days. They had never met me before and was only there to sign me out. I find their conclusions odd at the least. Vile place not conducive to mental health even for the most robustly sane individual and definitely to be avoided if you are ill.
