I was advised by outside agencies to speak to my GP urgently as I am a trauma survivor and was experiencing a severe flashback which left me terrified, overwhelmed and suicidal. The receptionist wouldn’t allow me to speak to my Gp, as it was not deem urgent and the soonest I could get a telephone appointment was in two days time.
Mental health needs are not treated as urgently as physical owns, despite my diagnoses being severely disabling.
