Re: Dispatches on Ch4
I saw it, thought it was a very good documentary. I saw some appalling things in the unit I was in, although some of the staff were lovely and were really trying to do a good job in difficult conditions. There were some members of staff who I wouldn't have let near my dog, never mind vulnerable people. The NHS is in a shocking state these days - I experience it with BP and my son's autism and there's no provision for either of us - anything we need we have to go private for. I've made numerous complaints over the years and have just been fobbed off every time. I sometimes feel like a just want to shake somebody and yell at them until they do something about it - a lot of it is down to poor communication and poor management, both of which are easy to do something about.
It's just lucky that we have these sort of investigative programmes to bring things to light - at least you know you're not the only one then.
