About: Lings Bar Hospital / Inpatient nursing and rehabilitation

(as the patient),

I stayed on forest ward. I bought a wordsearch and books to read. If I hadn’t I would have been bored.

Response from Sara Jane Ashmore, Interim General Manager for Rushcliffe, Rushcliffe Locality, County Health Partnerships

Thank you for your feedback - I am sorry that you felt you would have been bored here in the hopsital. The wards do try to encourage as many activites as possible during the times when excercise groups do not take place. We do have a TV room and lounge that has books and table top games, magazines and films to watch which is available for all patients who wish to use it, it is also available for families to use when visitng the ward. There is also a brain Cells and Biscuits group each Wednesday morning on Forest ward,run by a volunteer which is a discssion group - if you did not know of these then please accept my appologies,as it seems as though you would have enjoyed using some of these to help fill your time. We have had one or two other feedback comments that relate to the same issue and so we are currently reviewing the activites we can provide and are considering the appointment of an activites coordinator post to work with patients to maximise the rehabilitaiton by engaing time in coordinated activites. This is at the planning stage at present but is something that we do hope to create very soon.

Your feedback is really important to us as it helps us to identify ways in which we can improve our servcie and ensure it meets the needs of our patients using it. I shall share your feedback across the wards.

Once again thank you for taking time to feedback to us we do value any feedback.

Sara Jane
