"cavendish unit, leigh infirmary"

About: Leigh Infirmary Mh Oupatients Clinic / Women's Mental Health Unit

(as the patient),

I had quite along stay on the cavendish unit and found that the staff were very helpful and understanding in sometimes very difficult situations and sometimes understaffed.

The staff would go out of their way to help where possible. I suffered a berevement and the staff on cavendish helped make the anniversary of my son's death as best it could be, going beyhond the call of duties as nurses and health care support workers, and for that I will always be grateful.

The staff work very hard to meet the demands of all the patients and ensure the safety of all and make peoples stay as pleasant as possible.
