"With the support of all staff I am where I am now"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Adult Mental Health Services - Community (City)

(as the patient),

When first I joined SPAN, I was unable to think, speak, concentrate, etc. With the staff patience and support of SPAN, I am getting better and better in every day. I learn and still I am learning new skills in IT system. I attended other courses too, and I could say I am happy with my progress on my journey of recovering. The leader of IT course gave me the opportunities to have some volunteer jobs in the offices, working for NHS and I was pleased for the report I got from the people I worked for; this reflects good line of my recovery. With the support of all staff I am where I am now, they are brilliant and good.

Response from Julie Grant, Head of Communications, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

Thank you for your comments. We are always pleased to receive feedback, with positive comments we can rejoice in doing things well, whilst negative feedback helps us look at areas in need of development.

It sounds as though your experience of the Social Inclusion and Wellbeing Service has been a good one and that you feel it has been fundamental in your recovery. It is important to recognise that you are the one that has done all of the hard work, recovery isn’t always easy but it sounds like you have hung on in there and managed your recovery well.

Best wishes Tim Wood
