She flew on the 22 June 2014 but as I told you earlier she is delusional and is refusing to take medication ideally I need the mental health service in the UK who she is under to communicate with the hospital in Budapest her brother will fly out to assist but the UK mental health need to help as she will need to go straight into hospital in the uk

Hi Julie
I cannot begin to imagine how you feel at this time.
I suggest that you get a letter from her doctor concerning her medical condition.
If he will not give it to you ask him to send it directly to the hospital.
If your son is able to get to Budapest he shoudl go to the hospital and tell them that the letter will be coming and arrange the fax to be sent them.
He should also attend the Embassy in person and ask for their assistance in dealing with the hospital - it IS part of their job
I hope that this is of assistance - if you need more details then please just ask
Clare
