"Excellent care from Psychiatrist"

About: Boston House / CMHT (Adults)

(as the patient),

I have just returned from an appointment with a psychiatrist at Claire House in Wigan.

I don't often have much positive to say, but this is the second time I have seen this gentleman and I feel I should post about my experience.

The Doctor concerned is the first one for many years that has listened carefully to what I say; been courteous, compassionate and caring.

In fact it's the first psychiatrists appointment for years that I have come out of feeling more positive and reassured that my ongoing issues are being addressed.

I must also say that I have seen an excellent clinical psychologist in the same location who has always treated me with respect and provided an excellent standard of care.

Best Wishes
