I’m A Catherine Wheel and access mental health services via The Stonebridge Centre, (Team East) in Nottingham’s fair city, where the women are so witty.
My post concerns our Wi-Fi.
How about giving us access to our Wi-Fi in the refreshment outlets run by Options in our local mental health services? Perhaps in the lovely Cafe Art.
Currently at Cafe Art only the Trust’s staff can use our Wi-Fi, as the password is withheld from the rest of us. The local services are part of the NHS, and are paid for mainly from the public purse. The spirit of the NHS is for it to be there when we need it, and free at the point of access. It is our NHS, collectively accessed and owned, by all of us.
Cafe Art might be a public/private partnership where we do pay for the latte when we order it. Sadly we do not collectively own that. We do though own the Wi-Fi which is served up in Cafe Art along with the latte. You know, a skinny latte and a slice of our Wi-Fi would go down a treat for me. Like the staff I too would enjoy savouring my laptop to the full.
I feel like re-inventing myself as a Service Loser without the Wi-FI. I’m sure access to our Wi-Fi would contribute greatly to my mental stealth and waywarding. And most appropriately in a cafe, these things mushroom, and before you know it, lots of other peoples’ mental stealth will steep.
So please will our local services consider giving us our Wi-Fi?
