I have been receiving psychiatric treatment for 15 years during which time I saw the same CPN. However, since she was promoted recently I have seen 5 CPNs in two months. I’m 67 and keep having to explain to different people how I feel and why I feel the way I do.
I last saw a psychiatrist at the beginning of the year and should have seen them again in September but I forgot. I’m beginning to get memory problems and only remembered about my appointment in September when they sent me a new appointment for next March. The hospital does not send any reminders.
My GP is very good, he has always kept an eye on me and keeps me going but can’t help with the appointments I keep forgetting.
