I want to praise the care given by all medical staff at East CMHT in Newcastle.
Dr Gavin in particular is a fantastic consultant psychiatrist - uniquely so in my experience of many...
I visited last week, feeling more down, anxious and suffering from sleep deprivation than usual. As usual, he discussed the options WITH me and I felt like we made a decision together. He also discussed my concerns about my weight and the balance between benefits and side-effects of my medication. He always recaps details of my case and I know he will keep on top of this aspect too
He's also a lovely friendly man!
