My ex partner and friend who lives in Nottingham was sectioned in Sheffield and has now been moved to Cygnet Hospital Wyke in Bradford. I believe this is because of a lack of psychiatric beds in Nottingham.
It doesn't seem acceptable to be on a ward in Bradford when my friend lives in Nottingham.
The thing that I thought was good was that while my friend was on the ward in Sheffield was that he had free access to a safe outside space.
The other thing that happened that isn't great is that when I went to visit him in at Nether Edge in Sheffield we sat down together and wrote a letter that had been requested by his CPN in Nottingham giving him permission to deal with his benefits. He handed this letter to a member of staff to post. His CPN has not received the letter.
