"My stay on ward B2, Bassetlaw Hospital, helped me to get back on the right path"

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

My stay on the ward allowed me to get back on the right path of life after losing my way. My stay along with the help from the staff has let me make a plan for a more positive way of thought. No amount of stay in hospital is going to do this for me. The responsibility for what happens next is down to me in the end. So the only thing to do is go back home, live my life to the best I can.

Nobody can do more than that.
