"I feel safe here on Alford Ward"

About: Rampton Hospital / Mental Health Service

(as the patient),

I feel safe here at Rampton on Alford Ward as weapons cannot be brought in. I do think I would feel safer with a better Environment

The Staff are Effective and treat Patients well and as adults, I have a good named Nurse But I would like to see more off ward sessions.

I feel cared for with my Psychology groups with teaching ‘’kindness being’’ Like I said I have a good named Nurse but I would like more sessions. The Staff could be more responsive with Key workers and Named nurse sessions.

We have a good Community on Alford Ward and we all get on with each other, you could improve group activities and also observe band rehearsing
