"Excellent Care"

My daughter is under the care of Dr. We have regular meetings, and are consulted in decisions about medication and therapies. I really feel they understand my daughters needs. The meetings are never rushed, and if you leave a message your calls are always returned.

The only complaint I have is that when they dictate the minutes of the meeting, it can take a secretary 3 weeks to type and send them out.

Response from Simon Street, Complaints and PALS manager, Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for letting us have your encouraging views of our Trust- it is really helpful for our staff and other readers to know how it feels to use mental health services.

I have passed the comments about delays typing up notes to colleagues in my team so that we can incorporate them in our improvement work.

Finally I apologise for the slow acknowledgement of your post - we are putting in place a better system so that there are no such delays in the future.

kind regards
