They need to sort the food out, all of it!

I prefer home made food, cakes, pies, roast dinners

The staff are ok. I watch TV ( X Factor! ) and have a cup of tea with staff

I'm hoping Santa will bring me a Happy Christmas

Thanks for helping to gather comments at the Highbury Listening event.

All comments gathered at the Listening Event are being shared with the senior management team who oversee Highbury services, and I'm sure they or a responsible manager will respond in more detail shortly.

Response from Andrea Ward, General Manager , Mental Health Services for Older People, Nottinghamshire Healthcare We are preparing to make a change

Thank you for taking the time to respond to patient opinion. I'm sorry to hear that the food doesn't appeal to you.

Comments have been made by others and I've asked Sharon Howe, the Matron for older people to look at this with the catering team by the middle of January to see how it can be improved.
