After my wife suffered a stroke and was left with cognitive problems and was referred to the team that covers our area she received an appointment with the Dr in 6 weeks but after seeing her and despite the Dr asking for urgent appointments for the team nurse OT and speech therapist to see her we have had only one appointment with the nurse and no appointments or contact with the OT dept.
Only the speech therapist has maintained in contact and visited us in the last 6 months, upon trying to make contact with these services all you are told is that the mental health trust is underfunded and that they have a 9 months waiting list and some people from the stroke dept are even working 3 day weeks. The situation is very bad.
