Response from Andrew Howorth, Head of Patient Experience, Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

I am so pleased that have taken the time to post with really encouraging posting. Comments like yours can make a real difference not only to people who find themselves in a similar frightening place as you were once in, but also for our staff who sometimes feel they are not making a difference. I will ensure that your kind words are passed on to the staff and would invite you to visit our website and consider signing up as a member and supporter of the Trust?

It would be great to hear from you again

With very best wishes

Andrew Howorth
