Inreach sessions get rave reviews from Stepping Hill Hospital!

Oblong logo smallAs reported in an earlier blog post, we have been running activity sessions at the Mental Health Unit at Stepping Hill Hospital for the last few weeks. This is an innovative new aspect to our service and we are very excited about it. Today we received a wonderful endorsement of the sessions from the Inpatient Services Manager at Stepping Hill, who has given us permission to share his words on our blog. We are delighted that the project has been such a success and are hopeful that it will continue.

I just wanted to heap a bit of praise on Lynn and the team from SPARC.  We have commissioned them to provide a number of occupational activities on the ward from art to gardening.  Although the commission is in its infancy, the activities have been received with such enthusiasm.  (Staff) commented yesterday that they have often struggled to find patients as they are always attending activities.  The way Lynn has developed the team and adapted to a changing environment, both financially and politically is inspiration to us all.  I hope that we can continue to work together, for the good of the patients for a long time to come.

Huge thanks are due to the staff and sessional workers who have put so much of their time and effort into setting up and running these sessions – it’s their efforts that have made the project such a success – thank you one and all!
