"Be a very patient, patient"

I was referred to this service in 2012 and Im still waiting for another appointment since my last appointment in August 2015. After phone calls and emails I've had no joy. Just contradictory details from a confused administration team who seemed to be reading to me from a list of reasons why Im not being seen. Initially I saw some professional doctors and a counsellor though after time there's been a steep decline in professionalism. I advise you to becareful and be patient.
