"Please use the land behind Holford House"

About: Inpatient mental health care

(as the patient),

I'm suggesting putting a sports ground or court yard or swimming pool on the land behind Holford House because its a waste of land and its not being used. It could be used by Rydon house and Holford house.

Please put my suggestion forward because it is a waste. All there is there is a electrical box which could be boarded up. Thank You.

Response from Karen Howard-Grenville, PALS, Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for giving us your feedback and for putting forward your suggestion. We are always pleased to receive comments from patients, visitors and members of the public.

Your suggestion was passed to our Estates manager, responsible for our buildings and land.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to provide level, secure and safe access to this piece of land from either Holford or Rydon wards. There are, in fact, underground drainage pumps and a collection sump located in this area which prohibits development for patient use.
