"Awful service for children"

You'll be told one thing and get another! Twice in 5 years I've been here with my child to get a diagnosis for ADHD! They fob you off, they don't stick to the 'NICE' guidelines, they don't listen and they won't rush to get you follow up appointments or assessment appointments within the timeline thay your told. Useless and unhelpful staff who aren't compassionate in the slightest.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Firstly, apologies that the service has not met your/your child's expectations.

We take patient feedback extremely serious but unfortunately without personal identifiable information we are unable from this site to look into individual cases, however your feedback will certainly be forwarded onto the relevant department.

Please contact PALS (pals@southend.nhs.uk or 01702 385333) if you would like to discuss this further.

Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to contact us.
