"Please leave the regime alone"

About: Wathwood Hospital

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I've been here as a patient for a short while and it's working for me because I'm from prison.

This hospital should not be turned into something like a prison. It should be left alone where the care staff do care about us all and they are all there if we have problems. So please leave the regime alone.

Thank you for your posting about ''Please leave the regime alone" I have spoken to managers at Wathwood and other Forensic services about this. They are happy to reply in more detail both on the Patient Opinion website and in patient forums where this was first discussed.

Please be reassured that any plans to bring about changes would be discussed with patients first to make sure that all opinions are listened to and valued.

You can expect a further reply to your posting with more information.

Thank you again for taking the time to feedback and your kind comment about staff caring about you

Best Wishes
