In my opinion, the diabetes clinic hasn't changed in my 35 years of being diabetic and I lost my brother through neglect and no care of his diabetes, even though me and my mum kept mentioning, shouting, screaming, upset that he was struggling, as he had a learning disability.
My mum gave up years ago and left me to go on my own with my brother, but no-one listened or tried to help. They do the usual sit and look at you and say your fine, see a nurse.
I feel that the staff haven't a clue. I think that they've not educated themselves in diet or how can they advise a diabetic to eat healthy.
When I moved away, I didn't visit ninewells and did better on my own. Then I came back and I don't know if am coming or going with that department and now I’ve lost my brother due to the lack of care.
Do they not think in this day and age, we should all be more educated and show more care towards disability patients? They expected a person with a learning disability to call, which is ridiculous. They don't listen, absolutely disgusting.
Think it’s time to make it more public. In my opinion, I'd still have my brother here if they listened and done the job they have above their door and so called qualified for.
