During an inspection in response to concerns

We spoke with the majority of the patients on the male and female units. Most were very positive about the care and treatment they received across the Bede Units. Some of their comments included, �I think this is one of the best places to be if you�re mentally ill�, �I�ve been to a couple of different places, but it�s totally different here. There�s a relaxed environment here. The staff are approachable � there�s no barriers between staff and patients�, �This place has saved my life�, "It's not that bad � it could be worse!� and �Being here gives you a chance to look over your life and work out where you want to be.�
