Welcome to Ellern Mede’s new website launched in January 2017.
Best wishes to all for the New Year. Service users, parents, commissioners and staff involved with us will have experienced an Ellern Mede Christmas and we hope we made it a happy one.
Christmas and New Year are times of the year when family and friends are closest. For those patients who remained in hospital at Ellern Mede Ridgeway over the holiday season we were pleased to welcome parents, friends and family visitors warmly. Patients and staff all celebrated and the hospital felt as much like home as we could possibly make it.
Patients joined in the spirit of the season throughout December, designing Christmas Cards, participating in decorating their surroundings, dressing trees in each ward and enjoyed a festive lunch on the 15th December.
The Christmas Newsletter from national eating disorder charity, BEAT, featured an article by someone who spent Christmas time in an eating disorder hospital – read about ‘Rebecca’ in our patient blog.
Best wishes to all our readers.
