"Friend who was in lake side leigh"

About: 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

(as a friend),

The staff in the Lakeside unit, well some were great. It seemed like one of the female staff had favourites and paid much attention to certain male flirting with the men.

The staff are really good but there is not enough staff and I don't think it's safe in that place, the patients can't escape that is a good thing but bullying goes on and the staff are unaware how much of it goes on.

One person stole someone's teeth and clothes go missing. On days out some people are going out and bringing drugs.

People are poorly and I don't think it's safe to be sharing rooms, I was scared when sharing a dorm . I felt I had to go to sleep with one eye open watching for male waking at night. 

I got the medication I needed.
