"Detained too long"

(as the patient),

People come to hospital obviously not well. They are treated but are not moved on quickly enough to establish them back into the community.

I feel that people are detained too long after they are considered well and for reasons of frustration etc. people relapse.

Wathwood is dedicated to rehabilitation and moving people onto less secure environments, this is evident in the ever changing population at the hospital. Individual cases must be considered by the multi-disciplinary team where all factors are considered. Ultimately, the hospital works together with staff and patients to equip people with skills that will help them to move forward to a stable future. We appreciate you taking the time to post your opinion as hearing what patients say is important to us.
