"I feel let down by Crisis/Home Treatment Team again"

Due to recent issues, the Leigh and Wigan Home Treatment Team have been attending my home every day or other day for the past week or so.
However, due to unforeseen circumstances, I missed an appointment last week. Once I had realised I immediately phoned to apologise and was told no further visits were available until the start of May and that at the weekend/bank holiday, only a skeleton staff was available.
To be honest, I thought the team would have attended irrespective of staffing levels. This has left me feeling vulnerable, abandoned and frightened.
I was advised a visit had been booked in for me this week, but I waited in all day and no-one arrived or contacted me.
I have the greatest respect for the excellent staff who attend, but on the occasion I feel I have been left high and dry again.
