"Failing to acknowledge my concerns"

About: Stobhill Hospital / Skye Unit (Glasgow Adolescent Inpatient Unit)

(as the patient),

I am an inpatient in Skye house and this is my second admission and I may say it has been absolutely horrendous. I would never have expected the level of sheer rudeness and disrespect off of some staff members who make extremely inappropriate comments about patients and had no regard for keeping my belongings safe.

Due to my lack of trust in Lewis wing I asked if I could move wards.  This was refused.  My aunt emailed and asked and yet again this was refused but I still have not got an answer of why I can not move wards.  I was in Harris wing before where the staff are polite and caring.

I find the attitude and failing to acknowledge my, and my family's, concerns appalling. I think that more training needs to be done in Lewis wing as I don't understand how I can get a completely different service from another wing. Thanks for taking the time to read this as I feel like I'm not being listened to.
