I was given an appointment in Sleaford in the evening as I work all day and my work will not allow me time off.
The clinic is a way outside Sleaford and there is no transport at all there in the evening. I do not drive so could not get there.
I was given another appointment in the morning but as there are very few buses my appointment ended up taking over 3 hours because of long waits. I cannot take this amount of time off every two weeks so cannot get treatment for my depression.
I explained my problem to the man I saw, but he said that as all patients are having problems getting there, they cannot fit appointments to fit in with buses for some patients and not others. I am now left with no help.
