"Further excessive waiting times"

A further example of Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust and its excessive waiting times. I have now been referred to a specialist group by the trust which is in itself a positive, but, again, this involves a 3 months wait. The whole service is below an acceptable standard, if it was a mixed discipline trust (catering to various physical problems as well as mental health problems) I could somewhat understand the mental health related issues being put on the back burner, as they so regularly are. However, in a trust that is almost entirely dedicated to mental health treatment it would be hoped that waiting times for access to mental health services would be somewhat less dire. Sadly not.
