Wathwood Hospital is a 60 bedded medium secure unit for individuals who require assessment and treatment of mental health difficulties in a secure environment. The hospital of fers sporting, leisure, and educational activities alongside a structured therapy programme. The Involvement team visits patients informally at Woody's shop on the hospital site. This time we went along with a service user Governor of the Trust and a volunteer to hear patients stories. This is what patients and staff say about Wathwood:
'The best thing about Wathwood is the swimming pool. It's therapeutic and makes me relaxed as we are able to go every week.'
'I wish I could smoke at Wathwood but even though I want to smoke, it's done me good as my smokers cough has imporved'
'I like the facilities, I'm on a diet, I was on a 'healthy lifestyles' programme but now I'm doing it on my own. I want to be able to bend down and get my breath so i'm doing it to be healthier and I've lost over a stone'.
Staff are helpful and things get done. It's worked for me. Staff should be paid more!
