"Shortage of food on Ruskin ward"
Posted by Charity (as ),
I work for Southwark Mind as a user liaison officer which means that I go on to the wards and hear the service users concerns to report back to the user liaison meetings. There is an on-going issue with a shortage of food on Ruskin ward. The reason being that the supplier claims that he hasn't been paid enough by SLAM for the food that he has supplied in the past and now he is supplying only the basics.
The implication of this is that the women, who used to have sandwiches available when they took their medication at 10pm and were hungry, now have nothing.
We have brought this to the attention of the ward managers and other departmental heads at the Maudsley at the user liaison meeting. Nothing has been done yet.
SLAM please can you pay so that the women have something to eat again with their medication!
