I feel Safe here on Alford ward, Safer than the outside World. The Staff observations and having a lock on my door helps me feel safe. I would like to see more staff on the ward and more options for me to do. The Ward is effective having ward rounds 1-2-1 sessions, having a named nurse whilst on the ward and Regular Staff on the ward all helps. You don’t need to improve but keeping my named Nurse and giving me regular feedback is important. The Staff are caring and when I get good feedback about how I am doing that’s good. Sometimes Low staffing on the ward needs to be improved. I think we do need more Staff on Alford ward. I would also like to get more feedback from Senior Managers; let us know what is happening with the Hospital. We do have a good community on Alford Ward we have very caring staff and Patients, they look after us and support us, we also have a community meeting 3 times a week. We could improve this if all Patients took part and we would like more activities to do
