About: South West London And St George's Mental Health NHS Trust

(as the patient),

As a patient of Cheam Recovery & Support Team I am told I will get a copy of letters to my. GP. I am seen regularly by the same consultant and have had no letters since Jan

My GP has also not had all the letters. specifically I was seen on last month and I was to see my GP in two weeks for a alteration of medication. No letter came to me or my GP. After I phoned patient helpline my GP had a fax. On the 3rd June I received a letter to myself dated mid May.
