The team at the Arundal Unit are a good bunch who work hard on Edgehill & Newington Wards, but I feel are spending far too much time on the computer doing paperwork.
When I was on the "Unit" last month often I would hear staff complaining that they did not have enough time to spend with patients. It is very important that staff do spend as much time as possible with patients, nursing them back to health and therefore I agree with them.
I learnt that the Arundal Unit staff will be moving to wards at St Martins Hospital when the Arundal Unit closes later this year, but like staff I was disappointed that this apparently will mean the loss of eighty (80) beds in Kent.
