My sister was on ward 20 in Hairmyres, East Kilbride and we were not aloud to help pack her personal belongings for a transfer to another hospital. Some items were missing from her bag such as her PJ's, slippers, teddy bear and toothbrush.
When we phoned the ward the next day they said they were not there. I find this hard to believe as when had only left the night before and there was many items missing. I would hope that staff should take better care and attention of personal belongings especially on a psychiatric ward. I would hope that future that this is not repeated and passing this message to the ward may help future patients.
