"I do not like the way I am being treated at pebble..."

I find that some staff at pebble lodge can be rude, intrusive and offending of my personal needs. On several occassions have I been named and labelled about myself by staff and then spoken about and been joked about behind my back. Please note that these are issues I feel uncomfortable disccussing and the fact that two members of staff I later saw talking and joking about me made me feel very disettled and upset to this day and I find it a violation of trust. Whilst still being a current patient at pebble lodge, I am still having issues with staff and feeling a disloyality and lack of trust whilst staying as an in-patient. M
