Is my suffering less of a priority or my needs for support less than people who suffer psychosis?
I feel like Glasgow NHS Mental Health Services bounces' me back and forth. My GP earlier this year referred me to the CMHT at Shawpark Resource Centre. I would try to phone to find out how the referral was progressing. Then I was told the CMHT were not accepting the referral and I should go to GAMH.
I called GAMH and was told my GP would have to refer me to them. So I had to make another appointment to see my GP, who then had to make the referral to GAMH. I then had to wait to be seen by them.
There seems to be very little consideration on the impact on my life and my time being wasted. And while my life spirals further into dispair and crisis who is supporting me? Already overload GP!
Then there is the situation of Glasgow City Social Work who charged the interim charge of £26. 50 per wk for me attending the Charlie Reid Centre for 4weeks in April. I filled out a financial assessment form in January. I only found out in November 2014 that Social Work Services had stopped processing this form when CRC closed at the end of May.
Also where is my 'personalisation assessment' and why can I not get a copy of it? Because it was not done!
I will not have anything to do with Glasgow City Council Social Work Service until I get a proper apology.
But how much GG&C NHS and Glasgow City Social Work like to pass responsibility for the wellbeing, care and support of people like me back and forth then 'dumping' us at some voluntary services. Which may actually not be equiped or suitable to support us especially when we are not that well, but not ill enough to be in hospital!
I recently lost a Welfare Benefit and I find it difficult not to wonder why? Now I face more financial hardship, even more misery and stress!
