Morningside Terrace, Edinburgh, Scotland, EH10 5HF
it is extremely difficult to arrange to see a Doctor to enquire about the treatment and drugs provided. I was told that today there are only two Doctors available and they are only to be called in an emergency. There were bruises and cuts on my friend's face and arms. They appear to chemically cosh a Patient to control him/her to make up for lack of care, knowledge or staff members. Hospital really needs a Scottish equivalent of the CCQ inspection. Look at the other seriously worrying reviews from other Patients.
Was asked to spk to the mhas team after a welfare check with the police they did not even bother to speak to me utterly disgusted yes been in a suicidal state for years but I moving following day then coping with two bereavement s
I have been suffering from mental health issue for some time and it all came to a head. I approached them in desperate need of help. I waited 2hours for a 10 min counselling session in which I left with an app for mobile phones. A reduced anti depressant medication from the dose I was on and a useful contacts leaflet and told to back to my g.p. who I can't get an appointment for a month. How is that helped me. I'm more lost and suicidal now I've left. They are useless
Mhas assessment team are a utter disgrace they dont help patients I was told I was low suicidal risk and low anxiety an utter disgrace considering I tried to set myself on fire that morning they do not care if I killed myself I would blame royal Edinburgh mhas team for lack of empathy and care
I found the nurses to be necessarily rude and confrontational. Some of them were undisguised thugs. And in one particularly unpleasant incident I was assaulted by two of them. The place operates more as a prison than a hospital I was held there and received very low quality care. I was held in conditions where it was too warm for me to sleep and I was given very little access too food. If you are not well enough to get out of bed at meal times you will go hungry. The doctors were high handed and pursued a drugs and shocks only approach to treatment. The side effects of drugs including very dangerous ones were ignored by doctors and nurses. On one occasion this almost lead to my death. The course of ECT that I received was badly botched. The drug handling was appalling and resulted in me struggling to get the medication that I was prescribed. When very serious medical errors where made by doctors they were swept under the carpet. One doctor in particular was very dishonest in covering up his incompetence and behaved very aggressively towards to me to try to intimidate me into silence.
