"You are all unsung heroes"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital / Pendle view inpatient unit

(as the patient),

I would just like to say a really big thank you to you all.

During my time here the words of advice you have given me have helped me through this rather tough period of my life.

I know I have lost my temper on occasions and for this I apologise. I will however miss having a chat with you all.

So until we meet again, but not in here, big up the excellent work you all do. You are all unsung heroes and you deserve to be recognised more for the work you put in.

Thank you once again.

Response from Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust

As I know a lot about this man and his story, I found his posting genuinely moving. I am touched that he has written this. It is a credit to the whole team on Darwen Ward and has reminded me what our work is really all about.

Many thanks for posting it.
