"Care by Assertive Outreach Team.....Worthing"

About: Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Working age mental health care (community)

(as the patient),

I have sufferd from Bi-polar for over 14 years. For the past 2 years I have been under the care of the Assertive Outreach Team in Worthing. They have been of tremendous help to me, their service is excellent.

My CPN visits me every fortnight now and is warm, kind and professional.

She has helped me no end and has given me useful skills to help my condition.

The AOT team have taken me to their Bowling group, Badminton, Yoga and Pilates and also for coffee.

I can contact them anytime and their response is very quick and efficent. If I need extra medication, they will bring it to me all ready.

The team's Psychiatrist will visit me in my home and I do not have to wait for weeks or even months to see him.

Thank you to the team!
