"Care + mental health"

About: Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

Anything else?

With many trips to A&E and other wards with illness due to mental health issues, some staff have been ok. However a lot of staff have been very rude. One time in A&E for the 3rd time that week after self-harming (I was in psychiatric hospital) I overheard the doctor just outside the curtain call me a 'spoilt little t**t' and was very reluctant to treat me. They proceeded to staple my wound with no local anaesthetic.
