Our core purpose is to work with people and lead communities in improving their mental and physical health and wellbeing for a better life; through delivering excellent and responsive prevention, diagnosis, early intervention, treatment and care.
Whilst in hospital we want to give you the best care possible and make sure your individual needs are met. As well as this, we need to keep you safe and ensure your stay is pleasant and productive.
Our aim is to keep you safe, help you feel optimistic and hopeful about your health and wellbeing and support you through your period of need for hospital care. We aim to provide you with a solid quality of care during your stay with us.
We want you to:
be involved in decisions about your care and treatment
have an assessment of what your needs are
have, if appropriate, a Care Co-ordinator to help pull everything together
have a written care plan explaining what is happening
be involved in regular reviews to check that everything is going ok
have support for your carers/family if they need it
be followed up if you go on leave, and after you leave hospital, to make sure you’re ok
have copies of letters written about your care, if you’d like them
