Elaine Fletcher, associate director for neurological and specialist mental health services, said: “Walkergate Park is unique in the fact that we have so many different services and treatments all under one roof. I would like to thank all our staff, service users and carers for making this such a special place.”

The philosophy of staff at WGP is to work in partnership with service users, families and carers to give all their patients a good quality of life, to help individuals re-learn skills in order to help them achieve independence and ultimately return to the most appropriate setting within the community.

Nick Hedley, chairman of the Service Users Forum at Walkergate Park, said: “As a forum we work closely with staff and management to make the services here at WGP highly successful. We are able to give staff and management feedback from our service users about their experiences.”
