Original feedback for

Woodbourne Priory Hospital

It has been dealt in appropriate

My son was sectioned under section 3. He was transferred to home treatment by FTB under a 117. When the hospital discharged him, they did not add on the discharge paperwork that he needs (depakote) mood stabiliser medication. This left him without essential medication for one week and the FTB needed to be chasing the hospital for authorising of his medication. He was in a highly vulnerable stage at this stage and the lack of essential medication left him even more vulnerable. He actually rang the hospital asked to be able to go back to priory and they just told him go to A&E. His discharge should have been dealt with in a more sensible way. His support and care in the community was not fully in place at the time of his discharge and this should not be happening!
