"Don't expect any support"

About: Northgate Hospital

My sister was sectioned a couple of weeks ago she was dumped at my house with no warning by an occupational therapist who had no idea what the medication was or why she was taking it don't expect any aftercare unless you are prepared to phone constantly and be very firm and don't believe anything you are told they are going to do it won't happen no communication between family patient and crisis team absolutely useless
