Response from Phil Blatherwick, CPN, Broxtowe CMHT MHSOP, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

I am pleased that the Speech therapist has been able to provide you with strategies to deal with your gradual word loss and cognitive function. I am concerned however that other staff have been unable to help you. Would you feel able to talk to a member of staff about this so that we can look at other ways of helping you?.
