"I liked it because it made me feel good for a day"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

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

After receiving an invitation to go to a game in the box, I had never been to a hockey game so I didn't know what to expect. It was a good day out with other patients on the ward, then when I got to the box in the special part of the arena I couldn't believe the view. We looked right over the ice and we had a special box. Rachel who organised it had even brought panthers shirts so everyone felt involved. I enjoyed the music they played and hockey was a really fast entertaining game which I liked. Everyone was singing and dancing which was funny. We got to choose who we thought had played best and then Rachel presented this on the Ice. I want to go again and I have asked if I can get tickets for my birthday! I liked it because it made me feel good for a day.

Response from Rachel Redford, Project Manager, Local Services Division, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

Hi thank you for your posting. Wow what an amazing day out we had. The VIP box was very special and I totally agree with you, the view was brilliant. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the game, especially it being your first ever and wearing the Panthers shirt for the game.

The main aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of both physical and mental health and I think we do that well! - hope that we will see you again soon.
