Hi, i'm Maisie.

I'm a Peer Support Worker for the NHS Perinatal Service.

I am a mum to 2 girls aged 1 & 4, so life can be a little hectic at times but I wouldn't have it any other way!

Ready to learn!

  • What resonates most for me is the clear pride and passion they both have for the work they do. It makes me want to do what they're doing too!

  • Maisie Puddifoot made a comment

    Prior to this course I did not know anything about personalised care, learning about it has helped me to realise that I have experienced personalised care from time to time in the past relating to my mental health condition.

  • Confidence is key!

  • I joined this course as I have both personal and professional experience of mental health, I would love to be able to help shape the future of personalised care and to share my own experiences.

  • Getting an official diagnosis for my MH condition was a massive help. I felt listened to and understood for the first time ever. I was grateful as I knew I could start getting the right help I needed to enable me to start my journey of recovery.

  • All the key features are important and to some extent struck a cord with me, this is because the personalised care key features are how anyone would want to live in society, be it someone with a long term health condition/disability or someone who is well.

  • On a personal level I have felt this at times when receiving support for my mental health conditions. I can remember one doctor in particular who was obviously a very firm believer in 'doctor knows best'. Professionally I have felt it too, as part of an MDT.

  • Amazing! What a powerful story.

  • I have noticed a few changes quite recently in society. One change being that on some disabled toilet doors or parking spaces there are signs saying 'not every disability is visible'. Also, today whilst I was out at a local shopping centre I noticed they have introduced a 'quiet room', a place where someone experiencing sensory overload could go to. Both...

  • I am a peer support worker for the Perinatal Service. I would like to learn more about personalised care and how to promote it to the ladies I work with. I am passionate that everyone receives the care and help they are entitled to, I am a believer in living a life worth living and I feel being able to encourage patients to access personalised care, where...

  • I have found step 1 very informative and interesting. I was a complete novice when it comes to personalised care at the beginning of the course but I now feel I have more knowledge on the subject and would feel confident to talk personalised care.

  • I didn't know you could get treatment outside of the UK.

  • When working with my local mental health team I feel they have always approached me with a 'shared decision' type way of working. I have appreciated having a say in what treatment I receive.

  • I relate to the 'one size fits all' comment, there are times where I have almost felt discriminated against for my personality disorder purely because I am being judged on a generalisation. It has stopped me from receiving the care I needed at the time I needed it. This is something I would really like to see change.

  • Having suffered with EUPD for a long time now, I have experienced all the ups and downs of being under the mental health services. There have been times where there is no doubt about it, the NHS has saved my life. I did a year and a half long course of DBT, this therapy was a god send and helped me to build my life up and find some identity. I feel privileged...

  • Hi, i'm Maisie and i'm a peer support worker for the Perinatal Service. I use lived experience in my job so think I will find this course really interesting. I am also a service user, still currently under my local mental health team receiving support for my diagnosis of EUPD. I can see how the team that supports me uses personalised care, it is something I...

  • Increasing my confidence to talk about personalised care would be helpful as it will help me to ensure that the ladies I work with under the Perinatal Service are getting the best care possible, suited to their needs.

  • I am a peer support worker for the Perinatal Service. I am doing this course because I would like to be able to advocate for the ladies I work with and ensure they are receiving the highest quality care possible. On a personal level, as a mental health service user myself, I want to help ensure that other service users have a positive experience when under a...
