"These people are truly amazing"

About: Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Working age mental health care (inpatient)

(as the patient),

I was referred to the crisis team in Eastbourne after I had a complete break down. At the time I didn't agree that I had depression but the team gave me the right help. I was detained in amberely ward, to whom all saved my life. The nurses were amazing (although I didn't think that at the time) these people are truly amazing and I can't thank each and everyone of you enough.

Response from Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Dear Sammy85

How wonderful to have such lovely feedback!

I don’t think we have met, my name is Helen Greatorex and I am the Executive Director of Nursing and Quality at Sussex Partnership. I always check Patient Opinion to see what people have said about their experience of our care, so useful to have quick and clear feedback about what people think and feel. You taking the time to post such a positive message is just great,a really thoughtful thing to do, and warmly welcomed.

I was on Amberley ward just a couple of weeks ago,and you are right, the team there are truly amazing!

I am going to share your post with the Matron, Jenny Pickett and I know that she will make sure that everyone in the team is able to read what you’ve said.

So glad you’re better, and so glad our truly amazing team helped you get there.

With Best Wishes
