"Millbrook open day refurbishment event"

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

(as a staff member),

Lynne - I'm here representing Adult Mental Health and 'manning' the Meden Ward and Section 136 display. I'm really excited about the interest we have generated in relation to our bold colour choices and the positive feedback received. The open day is buzzing, there's lots of people milling around and there's a fabulous buffet! I'm really looking forward to finding out at the end of the day the names of our new ward and 136 Suite as voted by the event attendees.

Martyn - I'm here to promote the Peer Support Service and to see what the refurbished unit will look like... I'm really impressed, it looks really inviting and friendly... Really looking forward to it being up and running. A great day so far!

Response from Jo Horsley, Adult Mental Health Service Manager - Acute services, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

I’m really pleased to share how well the Millbrook modernisation project ward went. All the new wards are now open (Orchid, Kingsley and Jasmine suite) and patients and staff say they love the improvements to the environment. The wards feel lovely and light and airy. The 136 suite which is a place where people come to be assessed instead of a police station now has two on suite bedrooms which is much improved as it didn’t have any beds or washing facilities prior to the refurbishment. Management are always keen to hear feedback good or bad so please keep posting your opinions about the Millbrook changes
