Former East Surrey Hospital patient Nathan Harvey proudly unveiled his art work to staff at a special tea at the hospital last week (10).
Mr Harvey drew dozens of pictures while he was a patient on Woodland ward and his colourful drawings capture the work of the many staff who looked after him.
The Dorking resident joined staff and former patients at the Learning Disability Liaison Tea, an event organised to raise awareness of the support available at the hospital for patients with learning disabilities.
Sarah Lalljee, an acute learning disability liaison nurse, said: “This was a great opportunity for us to involve and listen to patients with learning disabilities. Their feedback will help us develop and improve our services and help us tailor the care we provide to the needs of different people.”
Staff at the hospital, which is run by Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, are also talking to people with learning disabilities and their carers about creating a Learning Disability Parliament. This will give people the opportunity to highlight the things that are important to them when using the Trust’s services.
