"Dudsbury ward an appalling grim environment"
Posted by Tania Poly
Dudsbury ward is a disgusting dark, grim, depressing ward. How you people that run this hospital could think that such an awful hideous environment could help people get better is beyond belief!
The only decent place is outdoors in the gardens. Even then there were not enough decent garden seats. I had the great misfortune to stay in this dump and it was the worst two weeks of my entire life. There was a smell of urine in the sitting room and even excreta on the toilet seat when
I attempted to use them. My cousin who visited me walked out of the living room in disgust before we had even had a proper visit. Thre was also a strong smell of cigarettes in the toilets despite there being a smoking ban. I found this offensive being a non smoker. There was also nothing to do. It was the most unpleasant, boring , ugly place I have ever stayed in. the only respite in all this misery was a brief coffee morning where instant speciality coffees of various types were served in paper cups. In all black marks all round.
