Glowing five-star reviews for CAMHS Learning Disability service in Swindon

The service, located within the Community CAMHS team in Swindon, is a specialist team made up of consultant psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and learning disability nurses.

Swindon’s Learning Disability service (CAMHS) work with young people up until the age of 18 who have a learning disability. This may include mental health problems, complex behavioural difficulties impacting everyday life or longstanding difficulties that are not getting better despite mainstream services having offered the appropriate support.

Carey Gurd, Interim Team Manager at Marlborough House, Swindon, said: “It’s great that we have such a positive response from families we look after. Our team works so hard to support patients and provide an excellent service that they can rely on. We’re pleased that the hard work is being recognised – it keeps us going!”

All patients and service users who receive care and support from Oxford Health are encouraged to provide reviews on the independent I Want Great Care website. Our NHS organisation encourages reviews as they help our teams learn where the quality and standards of care can be improved. It also lets us know where our clinicians are providing compassionate care and allows us to publicly recognise their work.

Below are just a few of the many positive comments the team has received:

“Our nurse has been really helpful and understanding of my child’s issues. He has listened carefully to me and provided me with relevant information to support with my child’s problems.”

“We were a family at crisis point and the nurse gave us really informative information that has helped greatly.”
