Almost 4 months ago, I wrote on Patient Opinion regarding a lack of planning in relation to my daughter’s care, by adult mental health services. A response encouraged me to call a clinical nurse manager, “due to complexity of your journey so far and your request for immediate action”.
Immediate action or help has not been forthcoming. Still, no follow up has been planned through, although a care coordination meeting had been set for the beginning of this month, then cancelled. It has been rescheduled for early April, I understand. It may or may not bring forth planning and care in my daughter’s case, however, I have little confidence that any help is imminent.
In the meantime, another communication muddle made somewhere within the NHS disrupted my daughter’s medicine supply, and again it has been left to the family to pick up the pieces and attempt to rectify matters.
It is wholly exasperating for us all, given the timescales reported above.
