"Seeking alternative care"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

(as the patient),

Got referred to Cherrywood clinic house by Healthy Minds who was failing me anyway. Then when I got there they asked me what I was doing there? Then they were happy to put me on tablets. I explained to them that I was having really bad mood swings which were I felt or knew were psychotic mood swings. They were happy to put me on tablets. But said in their report that I wasnt psychotic? Then referred me back to Healthy minds who sent me out a letter. Then on my return to Healthy minds was asked by a staff member who works there just what exactly do I want and what am I basically doing here. I had to leave the place ASAP. I will now be seeking alternative care. And hell yes im gona complain.
