Hi I am currently an impatient at Chapman Barker unit, I've been looking for away to let the staff know how much they are appreciated . they all do a fantastic job, nurses. Psychiatrists, doctor's., ex- service users and also al the Therapy team. Everyone is treated individual and on there own personal need's, I would certainly recommend treatment to anyone who wants it, in fact staff and patients are all so friendly I don't want to go , I would love to stay and help and maybe volunteer one day!

All I can say is Thank you so much I don't know where I would be today without them. And also to anyone who is offered a place at Chapman Barker then take it because you can do it!!

Dear Kerry,

Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review about our Chapman-Barker Unit. It is good to hear that you have found our staff so helpful and friendly. This is one of our Trust's key values, so it's great to hear that our staff embody this on a daily basis. We are all so pleased that you are finding your care so useful and it is at the right pace for you, which is so important.

Thank you for telling us about your experience, I shall make sure I pass this to the staff so they appreciate how you feel about the care you have received. Please also speak to staff on the unit about your wish to volunteer. The Chapman-Barker Unit has a fantastic volunteer programme and I'm sure staff would be more than happy to tell you all about it and how to apply.

All the very best wishes for your recovery,
