"Felt very safe and cared for by staff"

About: Mental health unit Bassetlow

(as a service user),

This is the first time I have ever been on a mental health unit (Bassetlaw hospital).

During my stay I have felt very safe and secure and very well cared for (by all the staff). The groups that are available have been very beneficial and enjoyable

It's great to her such positive feedback about your experiences and how the staff supported you in your recovery.

I'm particularly pleased that you enjoyed the groups offered to you as they are quite an innovative idea and I want to promote their use on other wards across the trust.

Best wishes for a continued recovery.
