"Waiting times "

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Adult Mental Health Services - Community (City)

(as a service user),

I have finished my talking therapy in March and I was reffered back to see a psychiatrist for a second opinion. I was told it was only going to be 4-6 months and I have been waiting now for 8 months.

I am not very happy having to have waited for so long, I feel very frustrated and upset and angry.

When I go back I want to see a fully qualified psychiatrist. I don't want no trainee. The one I had was rubbish. I could not connect with them and I didn't feel comfortable.

I need one that can understand me and have that empathy.
