Wathwood patients become trainers!

16/06/2016 by Amy Gaskin-Williams

A recovery college campus has been established for some time at Wathwood Hospital, delivering recovery based courses for patients, helping them to prepare for discharge and manage their own conditions.

Six patients have now completed the ‘Train The Trainer’ City and Guilds course enabling them to deliver courses with staff at the Recovery College campus on site. This means that they will be able to support other patients to complete the courses, delivering whole sections of the courses themselves, building their confidence and their skills.
