"lengthy waiting times for therapy"
The waiting times for psychological input is months even when this is the recommended source of treatment. It often takes weeks for reports and letters to be sent to G.Ps and patients resulting in poor information sharing. My G.P. often has out of date information because letters are not sent in a timely fashion. There appears to be no cohesion in collating and sharing information, for example, I shared information with various professionals only to find that when copies of this is sent to the G.P. half the information is missing and there are errors. There does not appear to be one format where all my information is held. Mental health care is appalling. If I had a physical health condition or a learning disability I would be given much better help.
