"Drs putting money before patients well being"

My boyfriend is suffering with his mental health and was referred to the CMHT, home treatment team rarely showed up, gave false promises, didn't deliver medication and were patronising as hell. Moving on to the doctor himself.

My boyfriend is suffering daily-I mean daily and nightly-yet where is the medical support? We were told 3/4 different 'possible' diagnosis-so how do they kno what they're treating with their anti-psychotics? This service is a joke. We were promised an appointment would be sent out four weeks ago!! I'm left to pick up the pieces at 2/3/4/5am when he's muttering incoherently, pacing and in tears. This service needs a serious overhaul or there are bound to be serious consequences for those involved in this awful Mental Health facility!!!!!
