Anything else?

My son who is now 37 mental health issues attended to have extraction of 24 teeth hospital was fine until it came to pain control he was sent home with paracetamol and little else he was traumatised by the pain they say they are not licenced to give something stronger on approaching go he says he's not insured for post dental pain relief so my so suffered considerable pain for months because dental hospital admits their protocol doesn't allow them to issue strong pain killing meds and the go isn't insured for any dental treatment pain relief my son has schizophrenia doesnt communicate well so are you telling me people have to suffer this kind if pain and no one will take any kind of responsibility I expect no reply and no suitable outcome just need to say this the staff themselves were brilliant but is this the way to treat people who have mental health issues. I think not
