"Feedback about Rowan and Redwood wards"

Posted by AmyJayne (as ),
I was a service user on both Rowan and Redwood wards. I feel really strongly that patients should have protected time with nurses.
If a psychologist/psychiatrist goes on holiday, ward rounds should not stop. There could be patients who are ready to move on or progress, but don't because decisions can't be made in the absence of the person on holiday.
It would be nice to know a bit more about the staff/nurses - it makes them human and helps you to get to know them and trust them.
Could psychiatrists/psychologists be available over the internet maybe? Because the thing is, you can't plan when you're going to need them.
