"Care, dignity, kindness and respect"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health (inpatient)

(as the patient),

I was very effectively cared for on the 236 suite at Millbrook Mansfield. I was treated with great care and dignity by the nurse in charge whose name was Stuart. He took the time to explain everything to me as I was very unwell and had been brought in by the police force.

He was able to allow me to become myself once more and treated me with care, dignity, kindness and respect.

I was seen by a four strong team of mental health professionals and went onto a ward that afternoon where they knew all about me and why the police force had been involved.

Information was explained to me in detail at all times and he did not get angry when one asked the same questions numerous times.
