I was referred to the Bedale centre through my doctor as I have mixed anxiety/depression. I went to my first appointment and was put on setraline which was awful, bad side effects so I had a medication review and was put on mirtazapine. This worked for a while but the last week or so they've been making me feel ill, so I phoned Bedale who told me they'd get back to me. I waited 4 days with no response so rang them again and they denied I had ever rung them, so they made an appointment for a months time to review my medication. I've rung them today to see if I could get in sooner as my medication isn't working for me. I was told they're too busy to see me after I rang them again because they never returned my phone call.
I'm now waiting until tmrw for someone to ring me, but I very much doubt they will. I feel extremely let down by the Bedale centre as all they have done is given me a pill and basically told to get on with it. I feel sorry for anyone who has a mental health problem in Bognor because the care you get is laughable.
