"My Wathwood experience"

About: Wathwood Hospital

(as a staff member),

(posted on behalf of patient) Continuing care ward Wathwood hospital

Ive been a patient at Wathwood hospital for the past 4 years. During this time I have learned to read and write. Both of those I could not do before I came here. I have had the chance to gain qualifications with my education.

My mental health has improved which proved me wrong as I didn’t think it could be fixed, my self confidence is much better and my physical health is better thanks to healthy eating and getting to the gym when I want .

Im also able to get my fruit and veg from our own farmshop on site.

Basically its thanks to Wathwood that I feel im able to live again.
