If I have an address in one city, can I check myself into hospital in another city in the UK?

If I have an address in one city in the UK (in Wales), can I check myself into the psych ward of a hospital in another city (in England), or will I be transferred back to the first city? This is a situation I need to be sure on before I put myself in the way of possibly being sectioned.

Is Keppra the problem?

My nephew takes Keppra for his epilepsy but I feel the meds caused his severe lack of attention. He was a seemingly alert, outgoing kid before the meds and since he's taken them for 7 years, he's displayed off behavior and his coordination is like a baby's. Is this side effect unique to Keppra or does epilepsy sometimes cause certain learning disabilities?

So many options . . .

I live and work in midtown Manhattan and was walking home from work today when I was stopped by a woman. I'd guess she was somewhere between 50 and 70 - yes, I'm terrible at estimating age. She was dressed well and conservatively. She told me I reminded her of someone she used to know, that she lived nearby, and wondered if I'd like to get lunch or dinner with her sometime later during the week. [more inside]
