""Enjoyed seeing staff encouraging patients and staff also joining in’"

About: Rampton Hospital

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

This is some feedback that was received from the patients within The High Secure Personality Disorder Service at Rampton Hospital (Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust) following a Recovery focused Summer event on Tuesday 14th July 2015 which was supported by some of the Rosewood volunteers and attended by our Chief Executive Ruth Hawkins.

A summer sports day was organised by staff from Chiltern Day Care services and co-hosted by some of our Male patients. Some of the staff and patients enjoyed playing Table Tennis, Badminton and Bowling outside in the sunshine whilst those more energetic engaged in a great game of five a side on the football court. The games ended with ice creams, ice lollies and strawberries for all.

Feedback from the patients was very positive and included some of the following quotes

‘Positive day, football played in good manner. Enjoyed seeing staff encouraging patients and staff also joining in’

‘Great to be engaged in outdoor activity in good weather instead being on the wards’

‘Brill day, enjoyed ice creams after spending time out in the sun’

‘Would like more days like this’

Response from Martina Griffiths, Modern Matron/Senior Nurse, The Peaks Unit, Rampton Hospital, Rampton Hospital

Thank you very much to you all for taking the time to share your feedback and experience of the care you recieve within our Male Personality Disorder Directorate here at Rampton Hospital.

As the Manager for Day-Care Services I am aware of how hard the staff and patients work together to share ideas and to host meaningful recovery focused events. It was my pleasure to support you with your ideas for the summer sports event and I was very proud to see those patients who agreed to show Ruth Hawkins around the Chiltern unit talking so passionately about the future plans!

Glad you enjoyed the event - cant wait for the next one.
