I feel very blessed to have spent three weeks as a patient at the “Min” where the staff consistently demonstrated tremendously impressive and immensely compassionate care.
Despite my confused and vulnerable condition I found the environment to be an extremely friendly safe and informative one that was perfectly suited to the very real needs that I had yet to recognise myself. Each and every member of staff I encountered proved to be supportive informed and encouraging. It seems truly miraculous that I felt completely at home there at a time when I felt entirely lost within my own self.
From my own experience and from feedback I have received from friends and family regarding my treatment at other NHS establishments, following the accident which led to my brain injury, there are no equivalent services offering comparable standards of excellence!!
To hear of its future closure is shocking and appalling. The only explanation I can find is in that the NHS is being deliberately undermined by forces ideologically opposed to its existence. If it is under funded and therefore unable to deliver appropriate services, the public will become frustrated and allow those in power to proceed with the privatisation of health services in this "democratic" country . We all need to wake up and take notice as the Lord Kitchener poster once proclaimed as a call to arms "Your country needs You!" This time the very real enemy is within!
