"Wonderful staff"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / The Woodlands (inpatient unit for substance misuse)

(as the patient),

Wonderful wonderful people. having spent historically years in rehab in the 80's and 90's I knew what to expect. The staff in Nottingham were in my opinion very very busy but always there for you. The NHS needs to acknowledge their professionalism. It's wrong that these lovely people are restricted by political correctness (a joke in itself).

Thank you so so much, I love you all and even though I couldn't get the meds I needed due to some "political correctness from the East Riding" I can tell you " Be proud of your efforts" also wish professionals like you guys got a bloody good pay rise.

I am a strong person but also very emotional. I WILL succeed and can't not afford too succeed at my age.

Also very impressed with the selection process of the right people, patients. What lovely motivated patients. I couldn't even go say goodbye because I felt hurt. I loved you all so much because you were chosen correctly.

Final note! You can do it guys but if you have a relapse then keep going the next time you are ready to fix it.

Only downside and nothing to do with Nottigham or the woodlands is that detox alone needs to be extended at the very least with therapy.

Thank you so much because only people like you understand! ! !

Oh one last message give your bloody employees a wage rise because if you don't then a lack of good staff will cost you hell of a lot more and patients will have little chance of success!
