Response from Andrea Emmens, Family Interventions Co-ordinator, Adult Mental Health Bassetlaw, Nottingamshire healthcare NHS trust

Hello. I was very pleased and proud to be part of the launch of this new Carer resourse. What a superb attendance, it was lovely to see so many people.

Carol was a superb host, strawberries and delicious cakes were very well received along with Carol's welcoming manner and smile. Amy and Michael did a fantastic job facilitating the talk on Mental Health Act and Mental Capacity Act, many people fed back that more time was required as it was so informative and relevant to them.

Suggestions had been put forward with regard to a name for the group, ROSIE'S won the vote. The name not only reflects the purpose of the group but the wonderful venue where the meetings are held, Rosewood Involvement Centre.

It was such a pleasure to read all the feedback above and I am so very pleased the group seems to be meeting the needs of the many dediacted carers, family and friends, who support their loved ones. Long may this group continue and I look forward to the next meeting.

If you would like more information on the group please contact Nigel Groves Invovlmenet Centre Manager on 01159 560845.

I will ensure all staff who attended are made aware of this lovely feedback.
