My daughter was cared for at this hospital and it was the worst 8 months ever,similar to something from Panorama.

Many of the staff are cruel and should not be in a caring role. Medication was given to my daughter unnecessarily, restraint was used far too often rather than actually talking to the patients. Hardly any activities organised, bullying was rife and nothing done about it when reported.

Regular checks weren't made,leading to self harm and then she was punished by being put back on 1:1. This is a private facility,what a joke, I'm sure Huntercombe made a fortune from having my daughter there as a regular patient on 1:1 surely those staff should talk to the patients this quite often wasn't the case,the nurses would talk amongst themselves or fall asleep.
