"Mental Health Services Fail the Vulnerable AGAIN"

The Locum Psychiatrist I saw 2 times rushed through my appointments Didn't listen to me Liked the sound of their own voice Couldn't give me any coping tips other than you must get a routine! I mean.... really!!!? Years of training to say get a routine on every visit

Could barely understand their accent and had to keep saying "Pardon" Next review in 3 months Probably will be told to " get a routine" Absolutely disgusted Need I say more?!
