Overview

Inspection carried out on 21 July 2011

During an inspection looking at part of the service

Patients told us that they were happy with the care they received at the hospital. Group and individual therapy was provided on a regular basis. Staff were described as �sincere, kind-hearted and genuine�. Young people on the adolescent unit took part in regular activities and school work and were enabled to keep in contact with their families. Plans of care and treatment were individualised and patients were agreed their weekly programme of activity with staff. Treatment, including medication, was explained in ways that could be easily understood by patients. Patients felt that staff had time for them. One comment we received typified this: �staff always want to know how you are doing; they stop and ask you how you are feeling�.
