At Huntercombe Hospital Maidenhead, we pride ourselves on delivering an excellent standard of care and our personable approach. See what people say about their experience with us.

We were impressed with the care given

I would like to thank you and all the staff at Huntercombe for making his stay so comfortable.  We were impressed with the care given and he was very complimentary about all the staff here.

I am beginning to understand the complexities of mental health

I just want to take the opportunity to say “thank you” to you and your staff for all the work you have done with our son.  When so many people are losing their lives with Covid 19, the fact that he is safe and alive is a bonus at the moment.  Getting him back to full mental health is proving challenging.  As I watch from the sidelines, I am beginning to understand the complexities of mental health.  Anyway my main reason for contacting you is to say “thank you”.

They have all helped him get back on track

Got my son home for extended leave until discharge yesterday.  Once again can I thank you for the excellent job you have done in getting him well.  He was in a very poor state of mental health when he went into hospital last September with very challenging behaviour.  Also thank all the nursing and the support staff who helped with him.  There are so many to mention: Ashton (the legend), David (the prince), Jes (Jackie Chan!), Aaron (snack police!) Whitemore (toast man), Alan and Owen and the many others whose names escape me. They have all helped him get back on track.  Great job!

All the staff that we have met are really positive, really warm and friendly

We wanted to formally put it in writing how grateful we are for the support and care that Thames ward is providing for our daughter.  All the staff that we have met are really positive, really warm and friendly towards her and seem to firmly have her best interests at heart.  This has given both us and, more importantly, our daughter confidence in the care she is receiving.  Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to all members of the team.

The services were delivering very good quality care and treatment

I felt the services were delivering very good quality care and treatment.  I believe that the feedback has been the same from other case managers who have also visited recently.

I’m actually thinking about my future, I’ve got a future!

I don’t even know where to start…Thank you all so much for helping me move forward in my recovery!

When I first came here I was convinced I’d be here forever.  I had no routine.  I wasn’t taking my medication, wasn’t sleeping and everything was just a negative.  I thought I’d never get better and I know I’ve still got a long way to go, but not to toot my own horn or anything, but I’m pretty proud of myself.  I’m sleeping, I’m getting up in the morning, I’m in a routine, attending groups, taking my medication and thinking positively.

Never did I think I’d be sat here writing this!  I’m actually thinking about my future, I’ve got a future!  I’m making positive choices already, I’m making positive plans.

I’m actually feeling things, I keep getting little bursts of happiness, like genuinely happy!  It’s been forever since I’ve had genuine happiness.  I’m so excited to see how my life goes and I never thought I’d be able to say that.

Thank you so much for helping me, you have honestly helped save me and my family…Thank you for helping me be happier and closer to making my mum, dad and sister proud, it is honestly the best thing anyone could ever do!

 

 

Maidenhead saved our daughter’s life and brought her back from the brink

I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for this hospital

I was in this hospital around 2010-2012. Best place for my treatment.  At the time I hated it there but frankly honest I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for this hospital.  Everyone’s opinion’s different but I think it takes courage to work somewhere like here…The one thing I learnt is that they can only help so much, cos the main person that can help you is basically yourself.

We are so happy

To all the team, We are so happy and thank you very much for what you have done for our son.  He came back to his usual ways and regained his confidence because of your help, encouragement and support.  He will go back to his normal life. Thank you very much.

I can’t describe how grateful I am

I’d like to say thank you so much for all your help.  I honestly would never have made it this far without therapy.  I can’t describe how grateful I am for your hard work.  I feel therapy has helped me accept and move on from trauma and believe I can now start my life fully and live my life for myself.

You make a real difference

Thanks for all your help, we have all appreciated it very much…Huntercombe has been such a large part of our lives and today it hit me how challenging the next phase will be.  You wish for discharge and when it comes it can be scary…Our daughter regards you with utmost respect and trust which is a huge compliment to you and testament to your skill and professionalism…You are a huge asset to Maidenhead.  You make a real difference. God bless you.

You have been truly awesome

From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank you for all your help, in what is the hardest time of my life. You have been truly awesome and made a terrible situation as good as it can possibly be.

The support has been excellent

Please pass on our huge thanks to everyone involved in supporting our daughter during her stay on Kennet.  We have some way to go , which we fully appreciate, but the support has been excellent from everyone.

We really appreciate all that has been done for her

Please could you pass on our thanks to everyone who has looked after our daughter at Huntercombe. We really appreciate all that has been done for her. Thanks again to all and best wishes for the future.

Things are looking brighter, thank you again for never giving up on her
