I am a user of Sligo mental health outpatient services. I usually have an appointment with a psychiatrist every four months.
But I have been feeling very dissatisfied with the psychiatrists I have been seeing for some time. I get the feeling they don't really care about how there patients are actually doing they don't listen they talk over you and its a very patronising experience. There's a different psychiatrist on every time I have an appointment who doesn't know you, and I feel sometimes that we do not communicate effectively.
Wednesday at an outpatient appointment was the worst I have ever seen, I seen a doctor for all of 60 seconds he seemed in a big hurry he just said your doing well didn't listen to a word I said and showed me the door. After waiting four months for an appointment its not good enough.
I feel its a very poor service and seems to be getting worse.
