"Orchard Ward Millbrook Hospital"

About: Millbrook Mental Health Unit

(as the patient),

Nice clean ward. Friendly and supportive nursing staff.

Food was adequate.

Would be better if there were more self supported activities for those who can not leave the ward to help pass the time.

Would be good to have a better plan in place for when doctors are on leave to help progress rather than waiting for them to come back.

Response from Kirsty Aveyard, Acting Ward Manager, Lucy Wade Unit, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

Dear Annonymous1

Many thanks for taking the time to post feedback regarding orchid ward at Millbrook.

It is great to hear your positive experience regarding the nursing staff and I will ensure staff receive this feedback.

The leadership team are currently working closely with the OT and Millbrook LIVE team regarding self supporting activities and there are currently proposals in place that are awaiting finalisation for some hours of activity ward based co ordinators.

I will ensure the medical team also receive your feedback regarding your experience of the medical team being on leave although I understand on this recent occasion the circumstances were unforeseen.

If you would to discuss further you can contact me on 01159 560835

Many thanks and I would like to wish you well in your ongoing recovery.
