"My mum is currently being neglected and treated in..."

Anything else?

I am writing this to inform all prospective patients of the dangers surrounding care of vulnerable people in this vicinity.

My mother is currently being held against her preferred will, despite their being no evidence that she is a risk to society, or herself.

I have three current problems that have arisen since she was admitted:

1. She was left in a very ill state all evening and night waiting for a locum doctor who never arrived.

2. She has been visited by her consultant, who has several very serious complaints against her by my mum and dad due to her conduct, lack of care planning, inability to work effectively and respect my mother. She still administers my mums treatment despite the promise that she wouldn't see my mum due to the allegations against her. This is a blatant disregard of my mums human rights and her rights as an NHS patient.

3. She is clearly being ignored and treated in appropriately given her condition of kidney failure due to excessively administered lithium over many years.

I am asking for a formal investigation immediately, i hope that this will save my mum from the neglect and emotional abuse that she is currently subject to.
