"the best help I have ever had"

About: Inpatient mental health care (Lambeth)

(as a service user),

I don't want to go into a long and protracted story but I would like to take this opportunity to say just much of a difference the staff at both Lambeth Hospital and the Bethlem royal have made to my life. I come from Manchester and only recently come to London but it has only been since I came here to London that I have received the help and support that I so desperately needed.

I can't thank the team enough for what they have done for me these last 6 years with their help and continued support I now have completely transformed life. I felt that Manchester did nothing for me they just left me on the streets with no help whatsoever! I managed to some how survive on my own but at what cost to my mental physical health ? anyway this is NOT supposed to be about them back in Manchester, I am so grateful to all the staff.

Thank you all

Response from Patrick Gillespie, Service Director, Psychosis Clinical Academic Group, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust

Dear Dislimbia,

Thank you so much for taking the time to feedback your positive experience of the help that you received on the Lambeth and Bethlem Hospital sites. This is much appreciated and we would like to feedback your thanks to the staff concerned and it would be really useful if you could tell us which wards you received help on.

I wish you well in your recovery.

With Best wishes
