Response from Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

Thank you for raising your concerns about access to fresh air on Trent ward.

Trent ward openned a new courtyard for patient access in January 2012.

We are sorry to hear that you feel you are not getting enough access to fresh air, the staff aim to open this area at least once a day. In exceptional circumstances this may not be possible.

We will ask the ward manager to monitor how often the courtyard or fenced area is made available and we would also encourage you to discuss this at your community meeting and gain the views of other patients experience.
