Advocacy is detrimental component of care on the psychiatric unit. Fortunately I was lucky to have a very caring and compassionate advocate, “Tracey”, on Ward 21 at Royal Glamorgan Hospital and “Alan” and “Louise” also had small input and did post discharge follow up.
The experience I underwent was integral to my care to ensure stress was reduced through open and private communication and section 3 and 11 care was explained by Tracey who had picked up on my anxiety in this area.
Fortunately this support resulted in a smooth transition back to the community and reinforced my experience in a positive manner to ensure all aspects of holistic care were addressed.
The system of advocacy reinforced contact with outside world re driving and sharing.
