"Orchid Ward, Milbrook, Mansfield, Nottingham"

About: Millbrook Mental Health Unit

(as a friend),

Went to visit my dear friend who is currently an inpatient on orchid ward, all the ladies on the ward had had their hair platted by a super kind and therapeutic nurse who clearly understands the value of the women feeling good about themselves. Charge nurse Dianne took time out of her busy day to reassure me about my friends treatment and care pathway and came across as very recovery focused towards my friend supporting her to make positive plans to be able to attend a relative's birthday party. Fingers crossed for my friends recovery.
