"I liked the cleanliness"

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I liked the cleanliness

What could be improved

The attitude to Mental Health Patients. The stigma towards MH is appaling and I was not respected much at all. Spoken about negatively whilst I was behind curtains and staff were at nursing station, many people inc me could hear.

Anything else?

Staff need to know that mental is much as an illness as a fractured bone. Treat people with respect. Please
