The review wanted to hear about the experiences of women’s high secure services from the Patients. This Feedback will be included in the report. At the end the review NHS England will feedback the findings and how the Patients views have informed any recommendations.

This is the Feedback from Sue, one of the Experts by Experience who is working on this for NHS England
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for helping myself and my colleagues gather information from the women at Rampton a couple of weeks ago.
I wanted in particular to say a thank you to Kath Alder for helping to facilitate the interviews.
The women were so responsive to us, and I do believe that it was due to the fact that they felt comfortable to share their thoughts and concerns in front of Kath without fear of retribution or affect on their care and treatment.
I thought that you might like to know that including the interviews that you kindly did for us, we managed to interview 28 ladies which is amazing.
Thank you very much once again.
All the best
Kath could I just say a very very big thank you to you for all you do supporting Patients Directly and also going the very big extra Mile sending the information over to us in the Involvement Team to post on our Blog site and celebrate all the 1st class work you do for the Womens service at Rampton.
