It has been my great pleasure in having firstly met Steve Ball (General Manager of Wathwood Hospital) and secondly having had the opportunity to meet patients and staff at Wathwood
What I feel Wathwood offers is a very much recovery focuses in-patient facility. The work that Wathwood is doing in terms of helping patients to move forward on their recovery journey is astounding.
I have had the opportunity to hear from staff and patients at Wathwood and have witnessed how staff and patients work so well together in supporting many of the initiatives in the unit.
It has been my absolute pleasure to have met many of the patients at Wathwood and I have been most impressed by their drive and positive attitude to recovery and moving forward.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to witness the enthusiasm from patients that are working within the Farm Shop and Section 17. The excellent work that both the patients and the staff do in providing these opportunities is so valuable.
I am therefore sad to have to step down as Governor Ambassador to Wathwood due to changes in my working practice and of course as we move towards Foundation Trust status; elections will need to be held again to appoint a new set of people for the governing body.
I would like to say a real big thank you to the patients and staff at Wathwood for making the last few months so enjoyable. Having witnessed the excellent work that is happening at Wathwood I believe many of the services and wards should be modeled on the work and ethos that Wathwood represents.
With all good wishes for the future to the patients and staff at Wathwood best wishes Tim
