"Hospital review"

About: Lynfield Mount Hospital

I got treated disgustingly by this hospital and the staff when I was an inpatient.

All that there was to eat was curry.

The room that I stayed in had black mesh all over the window hardly letting any light in.

It was so filthy, the ward was filthy.

The shared toilets and showers were not fit to be used.

It was beyond disgusting.

Staff never wanted to spend time with me, they just sat in their office all day eating. I got hit by another patient and staff did nothing.

It should not be classed as a mental health hospital.

It needs to be closed down.

It really needs to be closed down.

You would get better care in a prison than this hospital.

They did not diagnose my mental health illness correctly, when I left the hospital I was more mentally ill then when I went in.

The psychiatrist is a dictator, not fit to be a psychiatrist and had I been left with them as my psychiatrist I would have successfully committed suicide after my ninth attempt while under their "care"

I was scared of having to see them on the ward rounds, I was scared when I had to see them at Bradford south and west cmht.

You have to fight for your life if you get sent to be an inpatient to this hospital.

Please get all the help you can from your family if you get sent here.

It is hell on earth.

It needs to be shut down, so many patients have committed suicide under the care of this hospital and Bradford district nhs care trust.

Thank god when I needed to be admitted again Lynfield mount had no beds, I was sent to Cygnet Harrogate Hospital in another district.

Harrogate correctly diagnosed my mental health illness as Bipolar.

The staff their were so caring and genuine, the psychiatrists knew how to correctly do their job and the ward standard was that of a hotel.

A psychiatrist at Lynfield said I had mild depression left me on medication for over a year that would have never helped me. I am taking action against Lynfield mount hospital and a doctor.

Please understand you will not get care if sent here, you will need to fight for your life.

Please be warned.

Do not let staff tell you that you are paranoid if you feel you are been mistreated.
