"I would like to thank them all at Arnold Lodge"

About: Arnold Lodge Regional Secure Unit

(as the patient),

I just wanted to write to say my care and treatment whilst being at Arnold Lodge has been excellent. I have been involved in all my treatments since being here and it has helped a lot. I have been involved in my medication changes after discussions with my RMO.

I feel positive about the future.

Arnold Lodge has helped me to loose some weight 4 and a half stone in 2 years and this makes me feel more confident in myself as I can buy more fashionable clothes.

At my next CPA they will be talking about moving me to a low secure unit called Farndon Unit.

I have gained some qualifications whilst being here in IT and education, Overall Arnold Lodge is the best place I have been in over 6 years. Staff are always helpful and listen to my problems.

I would like to thank them all including management.
