"Pankhust Unit"

I cannot say a lot due to above list . The lady I was carer/ friend with for 19 years is in there,on a section.Because she is not being given the correct medication she cant get well.because she is not allowed contact with her younger sister ,friends,or neighbours.Her only treatment is sedation.Be very careful if you complain because you will suddenly find you are not allowed contact with your friend or relation held on the ward .As I write this my own friend is alone on the ward without emotional support,a hug,a smile a familiar face,this is a reprisal the Pankhurst took because the younger sister and I complained,the ward staff will not even pass on a reassuring "we love you "message.They can do this by misuse of the patient confidentiality rules .Keep away
