About: Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

What could be improved

The staff told me not to let CAMHS get involved as the would 'stick around for a long time and I didnt need them'. Even when I finally got CAHMS help they said there was nothing wrong then the following time they got involved they said Anorexia then it changed to Depression. The Shrewsbury hospital staff had said shout at me and I will stop 'pretending'.

In November I was told by a Great Ormond Street dr I had a Mental Health illness.

The shouting an pressure of Shrewsbury hospital had made my illness life threatening and it's only due to Birmingham Children's Hospital that I'm doing well.

(I have Pervasive Arousal Withdrawal Syndrome -previously called Pervasive Refusal Syndrome)
