We are service users, Carers and Volunteers and attend a Meeting called the Rosewood Forensic Development Forum at the 2nd Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Truss involvement Centre “Rosewood” in new ollerton. Part of the groups work is to work in partnership with service user’s carers and Staff from the Forensic division and link up our involvement from Rosewood.
In this case service users and Carers from Rosewood went to work in Partnership with Wathwood Hospital to help Train and support Patients from Wathwood to do interviews. This work is carried out by ERIF (Employment Resource Interview Forum) Ingrid, Sue, Morgan, and Allison all went to Wathwood the week before the interviews and worked on questions with Patients that they would like to ask, and then the following week 2 sets of interviews took place both supported by Rosewoods ERIF Members, Wathwood Staff, and of course Patients from Wathwood Hospital.
Ingrid, Sue, Morgan and Alison all feel that it is very important for Patients to be able to take part in this kind of thing and be involved in the next wave of staff who help care for them. The Patients from Wathwood enjoyed this process very much.
Staff from Wathwood have sent individual letters to the Rosewood team thanking them for helping out. Could you kindly pass on to Wathwood how great this was received.
The group at Rosewood think it very important to spread the word about Interviewing (ERIF) and would like to see more outreach work at different locations in the Trust, could they ask what the Trust intends to do to support ERIF as it expands and will HR be helping develop it going forward?
could you pass on the Rosewood teams thanks to the Wathwood patients and staff who helped make this so successful
