"Unfair wait at Ashley House"

About: Ashley House / Recovery service

(as the patient),

My appointment was for 9. 20am. I had to pick my little boy up from nursery at 11. 30. It’s now 11. 24. It’s not fair to be told or left for 4 hours.

Response from Nicola Guthrie, Halton Integrated Recovery Service Manager, CRI

Hi Rain 498,

I’m really sorry that you had such a long wait for your appointment and I appreciate the negative impact this had on your day.

At Ashley House we are committed to continuous improvement and your comment will really help this process. We have a group of trained peer mentors within the service and following on from your comments I will be working with them to ensure the reception area is managed in a warm, friendly and efficient way.

I apologise for the experience you had and can assure you we will be working hard to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Many thanks
