"Disgusting treatment by all!"

About: Heartlands Hospital / Respiratory medicine

I am a patient who suffers mental health issues the staff don't not recognise theses problems and to be honest can send a patient frm 1 to a 100 in no time wat ever! Food was appalling had to go and buy at the Starbucks I was so shocked at the prices they don't care that ppl are living on benefits or are pensioners who are already strained by the financial pressure a family member being in hospital, fancy menu bog standard food out to rise every penny they can get if u can't eat the food and can't afford the rip off Starbucks that supplies frozen chips n all that kind of food tough u must starve or beg ... Absolutely disgusting place for patients n relatives ..
