Posted by a friends who seen a big change (as ),
I visited a friend recently in Bethlem Royal Hospital who been in mental health services for serveral months now. I seen a complete transformations in his behaviour and mood so I asked him what was different to all the other treatment he has recieved in the past.
He couldn't have talked highly enough of the exercise department at the hospital. He says the lady that helped him was extremely positive and made it exercise available for him by offering him 1 to 1 treatment buidling up to a small groups into larger groups with a hugh range of activities, swimming, sport and cycling.
However, he couldn't understand one thing. The whole exercise department is run by one person at the Bethlem. To me the hospital seems extremely big and how one lady serves the whole hospital I'll never know. This is made such a hugh differnce to my friends I can only ask why don't we have more exercise staff available for the patient to take full advance of the excellant service.
