Wathwood Hospital is a 60 bedded medium secure unit for individuals who require assessment and treatment of mental health difficulties in a secure environment. The hospital offers sporting, leisure, and educational activities alongside a structured therapy programme.
The Involvement team visits patients informally at Woody's shop on the hospital site. This time we went along with a service user Governor of the Trust and a volunteer to hear patients stories. This is what patients and staff say about Wathwood:
'I am new here, only been here a week it's ok so far. I'm going to do some cooking and relaxation and staff seem ok.'
' We could do with more advocacy so we can talk to someone independent about our needs'
' I've been here a year, not sure how I feel as I've been excluded form the outside world. I think I've improved but that may be down to the medication'. I have 1:1 time with therapists and staff.'
