"Mental Health Assessment."

About: West Middlesex University Hospital

From the moment I was approached by the police and the squad of mental health professionals at my home on 18th September 2016, I knew something was very amiss. The Police were consummate professionals and behaved well within the bounds of their power. The same cannot be said for the mental health professionals making the initial inquiry at my home and the vast majority supposedly delivering a health service following my incarceration on Finch Ward. This uneducated force with the power to detain and hold citizens of the UK without proper personal representation is a scandal on the NHS and the government. It just waste £'s in the millions, I myself have been held 5-6 days longer than necessary and will still not see the light of day for another 5 days until the tribunal has convened and hopefully found me fit to return to society.

It is a farce and ludicrous waste of tax payers money.

Response from West Middlesex University Hospital

We are sorry to hear this. From what you have written i.e. that this refers to mental health and Finch Ward it sounds like you are receiving care from West London Mental Health NHS Trust at the Lakeside Unit. Although this is based within the grounds of our hospital it is run by WLMH. Your comments have been passed to them but please get in touch directly via PALS by emailing pals@wlmht.nhs.uk or calling 0800 064 3330 so that they can investigate your concerns and respond to you directly.
