A year ago at Christmas I was suffering from depression and became suicidal. I subsequently and stupidly took an overdose. I was admitted for medical care and whilst In A&E the doctor referred me to the crisis team, something my husband was very keen for.
The crisis team then refused to see me and I went home without any support. It's been a hard year recovering from this, and I now fortunately feel much better. However, I wanted to share my traumatic experience and express my concerns at the lack of support provided to me by Aintree hospital. I was very unwell, left in extreme emotional distress and at severe risk of self harm. I would have expected a greater duty of care to me, their patient rather than refusing to see me!
