"Recovery journey"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health (inpatient)

(as a service user),

I cant believe span is closing ive only been attending about 6 weeks before this i was isolated and alone, Im sad to think of its closure not just because of the people ive met on different courses there, but also because i think it has a fantastic atmosphere ive felt very comfortable there even on my bad days. Its such a wonderful place i cant understand why span is closing yet the trust are looking for another building to provide a recovery education centre. surely thats what span is already providing? why waste money on a new site new staff new equipment etc etc when everything you need is already at span?

sorry if im nieve just dont see the point.just like to say thank you to all the staff at span for the help given to me. genuinely thank you

Thank you for your feedback about the services at Span.

Change is notoriously difficult, but the services that are provided from the Foster Drive site are going to continue in community venues.

The Admin, IT, and Basic Skills have moved to Aspley Community and Training Centre, and we are looking for suitable venues for the art groups.

The creation of a Recovery Education Centre is been developed which will offer lots of opportunities and support in service users individual recovery needs
