Poor bed availability
My son was send out of area as there were no beds available in Oleaster part of BSMHFT. He was in Manchester for weeks/months, causing us family considerable distress i.e. going up and down the M6 and we are now in our 70’s, which is totally unacceptable.
There was a safeguarding issue when he was in Woking and he ran into a busy main road when he was not campus mentis and stopped a van. One of the man in the van pushed him on the right hand side of his head when he was transferred to the hospital in Woking. He wanted to get home and he could have been killed ! he was there over night and was not secure enough. This situation should not have occurred had a bed been available locally.
