"Ward B50 at Queens Medical Centre"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Inpatient mental health care Queen's Medical Centre

(as the patient),

I think the things that could be improved on this ward are:

A regular time to see the consultant as far as this is possible.

A small space on ward dedicated to private reading or writing, i.e. no loud TV and no visitors.

More showers, i.e. 2 per ward dedicated M/F.

At times I thought the ward appeared to be over-staffed with agency(?) carers who had little to do.

Best thing about the care:

Very friendly & relaxed environment & good access to key workers.

Always someone to talk to.

Response from Involvement Team , Involvement & Experience, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

Thank you for suggesting improvements on B50.

I will pass on your posting to the ward as this is the kind of feedback that is very useful to bring up in patient and team meetings.

It is good to hear that the care is providing the right balance of support and staff will be pleased to hear about this.
