I received a call from someone from home treatment team around week after discharge. usual questions what support do you need? Then told lilacs ward have said you do not need ht support as you discharged yourself and were able to make decisions. Why phone in the first place to tell me this as I was not expecting any support as don't live in kingston area and because of the situation in lilacs ward?
I discharged myself because I was not getting any help and support. One minute discharge on one day told at 4pm, then left they had made an appointment at 3pm for maddison centre teddington as not leaving. This was cancelled. Why was no similar provision made on another day? Again ignored and left after 3pm with my carer.
All advice given as leaving was call crisis line. No info given on this, then left to go home with no support call from home treatment team who initially said about support and then said lilacs ward have said you don't need the service. Total mess up and all this about change takes time especially when ingrained in an institution/ward. Really disappointed, alone and don't really care now.
