"sapphire ward :)"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

Anything else?

I came to a n e because of suicidal thoughts and hearing voices ( I am schizophrenia) I was treated fairly quickly and seen by the crisis team within a matter of an hour and a half, which was amazing as I am orginally from northern ireland and to see the crisis team you have to wait 6-10 hours, the crisis team where amazing, they admitted me to Sapphire Ward and managed to get me a bed within 30 minutes I spent 6 weeks on this amazing ward, the staff were kind, caring, thoughtful and comforted me when I went through a very bad breakup they even went out of their way to escort me home to Northern Ireland when I decided I didnt want to stay in Gillingham any longer :) I couldnt have been happier, had an absolutely amazing experience Thank you for your amazing service
