"Helping to get my life back - Thanks to all involved "

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital / Parkwood inpatient unit

(as the patient),

Everything great, staff great, over the moon with it here. It’s like winning the lottery. I’m very grateful for everything – humbled by everything in here can’t thank you enough. Patients great too.

Thank you to everyone. Cleaners, police and all the others who had to restrain me. I’m very, very grateful for everything. It’ll be tearful leaving but that is good.

It’s helped me get my life back in perspective and I know if I can go around the corner in a meaningful way and not hurt anyone now and life is good today. I’ve got back my self-respect, dignity and a life. Thank you so much for that. Thanks to the Bowland staff, all staff and the receptionist.
