"The care I have received from my excellent GP"

About: Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health

(as the patient),

I have had a variety of symptoms for a while but my GP at Stable Fold Surgery spends as long as I need to talk things through. One of my symptoms includes depression and he is so understanding. Due to the long waiting lists for therapy and my suicidal state he chased this up with the local Mental Health Team. He had also researched thoroughly my condition and believes it to be Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome so has looked in to all the things that will help me whilst waiting to see the specialist. All his patients are willing to wait to see him as he is incredibly thorough, caring and takes his time to ensure the right diagnosis is made. When writing to the hospital he mentioned the condition he believed I had so that the specialist would pick up my case.
