"I was in hospital on Christmas eve for four days"

About: Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust Royal Bolton Hospital

(as the patient),

During my stay in ward K1 at the Royal Bolton Hospital, the staff were very caring and professional. However, I was unhappy with the diagnosis from the psychiatrist. I feel am not being given the correct diagnosis of Bi-polar. I think this is because I would need follow community care. I feel the psychiatrist did not fully understand my problem. However, I felt this time he tried harder than on our previous meeting. Nonetheless, I would like to thank the crisis team and the staff on K1because whilst I was in hospital on Christmas eve for four days, they made a great effort to make it special for all the patients.
