John Oldham on 140-bed Roundhay wing: 'The conditions there are, in my view, abysmal.'

Peter McGinnis: 'There is no outside space at all at Roundhay. There is one ward with a corridor going through it which is just not acceptable in terms of modern psychiatry.'

Professor Mindham: 'If a ward is full and you have a lot of very disturbed patients you get resonances within the ward, with patients winding one another up. Nurses end up taking on a custodial rather than a therapeutic role. We have had episodes of violence which could have been avoided.'

Professor Mindham: 'I am not confident that the trust board know enough about the services they are running.'
