Dear Sheer548,

Thanks so much for sharing these comments on Patient Opinion, on behalf of the service users you spoke to.

There are some really lovely comments here, and it's great to capture more of the positive feedback at Arnold Lodge, which I think has sometimes been missed.

There is something about the fishing comment that I particularly like! My instinctive reaction to it is to smile - I'm not sure whether the person particularly likes to fish, or whether they simply enjoy leave, but either way - I'm sure it will be a change of scenery and a good time to relax (unless they catch a strong one!).

I know that you are sharing these comments with staff at Arnold Lodge, and that Jennie Palmer-Vines is taking a particular interest in the comments you're capturing, so please do let people know on your return visit to the wards that staff are very grateful for this positive feedback.

Thanks again,
