"Improve our stay"

About: Intellectual Developmental Disabilities/ Learning Disability Services – Inpatient / Orion Unit

(as a service user),

The staff on Orion are alright.   Better food and more choices (more cakes/sweets).   Orion staff to have a pay rise 4. 4%.   More money for activities, improves our stay.

Thank you for your feedback. It is good to know that you get on well with the staff.

Our food choices are limited because the meals come from the main hospital kitchen.

We can look at doing some basic meal preparation on the unit as an activity thinking about healthy eating choices.

It might be a good idea to chat with the staff about what activities you would like to do and we can have a look at how much they will cost.

It is good to hear that you like to keep busy doing activities so hopefully we can look at how we can support your interests.

Thank You

Natalie Smith

Clinical Nurse Specialist.
