"My dog put in Kennels gets better care for his..."

About: The Bradgate Mental Health Unit

Trapped in a filthy dirty place, not once cleaned whilst there. Sinks blocked toilet blocked smell foul"its normal". Only met a trained staff when leaving.Other wise 'agency staff' who baby sat and more interested in catching up on their social lives. Whilst patients in chaos, no one seemed to get any therapeutic input, very bullying,humiliating, boring,digrading,undermining environment , if you did not feel bad enough as it was.Some patients had a good time'drinking and smoking' to the determent of more vulnerable patients.No privacy or dignity using toilets if you could get into one locks kept jamming. I was cold asked for a blanket was not any next night awoke cold to find staff had taken new blanket,but they were able to sleep okay as they were snoring. Well done LPT blocking WiFi access allows for an individual to not beable to com act anyone for help!
