"verbally abused by psychiatrist"

About: North Yorkshire and York PCT

(as the patient),

My partner was admitted to Northallerton Hospital at night time and the following morning he was seen by Consultant Psychiatrist. In my view the Psychiatrist was agressive towards him and shouted at him and also threatened to remove all my partners services and also said my partner had no right contacting the crisis team in the middle of the night.

Shortly after this incident my partner was admitted to Manchester Royal Infirmary for taking a large overdose this I feel was due to receiving no help from Northallerton Mental Health Services He nearly died and was in the re-sus area of accident and emergency for several hours.

I feel as though Northallerton mental health services have failed a very vunerable person.
