    Unfortunately it appears that someone has been having you (or maybe the nurse) on Birdman!
    HMP Berwyn does not have any prisoners convicted of any sex-related crimes including rape. This was in the details publicised and agreed to before it was built. If you’re not convinced, do a little research and you’ll see it’s a fact that in the UK such prisoners are kept in a limited number of prisons with special adaptations, and Berwyn isn’t one of them.

    Great, so after all the kerfuffle and outrage the original post is fake news. Sums up the state of the internet today.

    The biggest threat to A&E are timewasters who could easily treat themselves, and attention seekers who often have mental health issues..

    What an idiot to call someone with a mental health problem an attention seeker! We have this huge drive at the moment to bring mental health into public awareness due to the fact that 1 in 4 have a mental health problem in the UK.

    It’s really saddening to see discrimination here and you should be ashamed of yourself. Your definition of ” attention seeking” is probably hell on earth for the mental health sufferer and patient.

    I totally agree Janey. No wonder sufferers (like myself) find it so difficult to come forward and ask for help. In my mind now is if I ever do have an attack in public, people will be thinking I’m attention seeking. I’m glad AMA no longer works there if this is his attitude. I hope he never works around people with mental health issues at all. I feel very disheartened tonight, I really thought things were getting better.

    Fugazi,

    Not everyone discriminates so don’t worry. Sorry you have panic attacks, I know from personal experience what they are like and how debilitating they can be.

    I read someone got hit by a train today near Wrexham and I am hoping its not suicide/suicide attempt!
    Mental illness ruins lives, ruins families lives, to discriminate in this day and age is very sad.

    The invisibility of mental health should not make it any less of an issue than someone with a plaster cast on their leg. The ability to lead a full and active life can be affected by both, for the individual and their family and friends.

    Everyone needs time and space to be able to talk yet everyday pressures often mean it is forgotten. GP’s find it hard to deal with – often giving out inappropriate medication to mask an issue rather than dealing with the cause. If someone is successful in being referred to a Mental Health specialist by the time an appointment is available the condition could have escalated and the person’s condition deteriorated.

    Everyone should look, listen and talk.

    If you need help now phone Samaritans 116123

    All prisoners brought into A&E from HMP Berwyn are handcuffed, and often chained, and accompanied by at least 2 officers. 1 officer stays with them at all times during treatment.

    In 9 cases out of 10, patients brought in by the Police are also accompanied by 2 officers, who stay until they’re discharged. In the odd 1 in 10 case, the patients are victims, aren’t under arrest and are not deemed a threat.

    The biggest threat to A&E are timewasters who could easily treat themselves, and attention seekers who often have mental health issues.

    I worked as a Security Officer in A&E at the hospital until 3 weeks ago.

    I find it disturbing that someone who claims to have been a security officer at the Maelor’s A&E appears to think that this make him/her capable of spotting so-called “timewasters who could easily treat themselves” and “attention seekers” with “mental health issues”. Did you have sight of their medical notes? Did the medical staff discuss with you personal information relating to their patients?

    In fact, I find this sufficiently disturbing that I am going to report it. I would not feel comfortable attending A&E if this sort of personal medical information is handled so irresponsibly.

    Bubble, reporting him will do no good.

    Mr Adrian has run his own security business since April 2016 so is unlikely to reprimand himself!

    I think Bubble meant reporting it to the Maelor. More of an issue of their staff discussing personal information with security. It could also mean they wouldn’t use his services in future. Also possibly legal implications?
