"Inadequate mental health care"

My son was admitted to Dumfries Infirmary following a paracetamol overdose.
He was discharged two days later without medical assessment or a discharge letter and no mental health follow up despite living on his own as a student with the advice to get in touch a GP to ask to be put a waiting list of several months for support therapy.
I raised concern that this demonstrated a total lack of concern for his safety and requested a Dr assess him all day to no avail from 9am until we left the ward at 8pm.
