"mental health unit"

About: Basildon University Hospital

This unit is run with a Victorian might is right attitude where the patient has to accept the view of the doctors consultants without question,It has a bullying atmosphere with little concern for the patients mental health or wellbeing the sooner this unit is closed and new management can take over the better.This place is a ticking time bomb of abuse and discrimination.I have made the CQC aware of my experiences and hope enough patients make there feelings known to make changes to this place.
