What I liked
I have no problems with the actual consultation, although the consultant I saw is arrogant and inflexible.
What could be improved
It would have been nice to be treated like an adult instead of being treated like a naughty 5 year old!
I was never included in decisions about my treatment and when I wrote to question why decisions had been made without being discussed and agreed with me the consultant discharged me!
This is mainly down to the fact that he has been told to reduce his drugs bill, he has been trying to reduce my medication for a year or so on no evidence at all. He refuses to answer my questions, just threatens to stop prescribing my medication, which I can't live without.
Now I am stressed, scared and angry, no help to my condition.
