"We can't have pens"

About: Women's mental health / Colne

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

We can't have pens and I am trying to do my exams. I had a pen before for months and months, but now I have a set time to have a pen and then I have to give it back. It stops me from studying and is too restrictive.

thank you for your question about the restrictive use of pens. I have brought this to the attention of the Service Director and they will look into this matter on your behalf. they will contact you either directly or through the patient opinion site with a response shortly.
