My son also is on milbrook ward I feel he does not get the correct therapy as he only sees a the consultant once per week An there is no therapy given to help with any of the unrealistic thoughts or voices that he hears due to his phycosis issues An is only always put on medication An never learns realistic ways of thinking so he ends up back in section when things go wrong where as if he had correct therapy then he would have a better chance of a much better life instead of trying to harm or kill himself when things go to breaking point

Dear Ashley

Thank you for taking the time to contact us and I'm sorry to hear your concerns.

Our focus should always be individualised and have a strong emphasis on psychologically minded approaches and seeing people in their wider environment and what matters to them.

While medication can be important for many people, it should never be the sole intervention.

I agree that we need to have long-term perspectives to try minimise the risks of coming back into hospital.

I will speak with the ward and ask them to contact you to discuss your concerns further and to think with you about how we can provide the best possible care for your son.

Kind regards

Clinical Director

My son is a mental patient in Millbrook ward, who is very badly in need of services of a Psychologist. There is only one Psychologist who handles over 20 patients or more, for the last six months no Psychologist therapy was given to my son due to lack of therapists. It would be helpful for all the patients as well, who need this therapy be provided by increasing numbers of psychologist service in this ward.

Other services provided by the staff are excellent.

I am sorry to have read your comments, it will be helpful to make contact with you to discuss this.

Can you please contact our PALS office so we can arrange a meeting or a telephone call to get further details to enable us investigate your concern.

Their number is 0800 917 7159.

Kind regards
