My Step Father was admitted in late August at 1 o'clock in the morning. He was put in a cubicle and was told someone would see him. He was seen shortly after for his details. He was never seen any more that night because he discharged himself. There were plenty staff but it seemed they were just standing talking to each other, showing no interest whatsoever in finding out the problems he was having. In early September we took him to the RVI where upon our arrival he was cared for and looked after properly. He was sent for tests and found out his problems that afternoon. Nothing was a bother for the staff there. My Stepfather says he will never go to Wansbeck again.
