"Patients have no voice"
Posted by Anonymous
Patients are not heard. Their views are simply dismissed and Doctors refuse to discuss further.
The care plan is a joke.
Appointments are cancelled without notice and should the patient dare complain they are told their moods are unstable and this could be a sign of deterioration in their mental health and threats of increased medication.
Not all patients are treated equally and staff lie and threaten patients then deny it happened.
I speak to my relative every day and the way they are treated is appalling. They are spoken to like children and if they disagree they are told they have something seriously wrong with them.
My relative is threatened with never being discharged unless a confession regarding mental health is acknowledged despite any progress made they have to confess to a condition which is life long.
Every patient has a voice and whether it's an objection or disagreement of both diagnosis and medication they should be allowed to voice their view without fear of increased mess or not fit for discharge !!
