"people sleeping on chairs as no bed available"

About: Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust

Not for the first time have i been to visit a person on the mental health unit at stepping hill hosp to find they had been admitted and due to no beds available were left to sleep on 2 chairs pushed together this seem to be a continuing issue when a patient is moved from a general ward due to self harm on to this mental health unit , it used to be a good mental health unit now its a nightmare
