"SLMHS Consultant area change."

Hi, I've recently been informed from a 3rd party that the SLMHS consultants have moved areas, I was surprised as I'd received no prior warning about this. I feel that the service should inform their clients about such moves as they may have concerns or anxiety's and they may want to discuss any potential changeover issues beforehand. You can appreciate that clients can and do have a rapport built up with their consultant and further may have complex treatment histories or concerns around ongoing/future treatments that may be affected by having to engage with a new consultant especially as the registers also have to change areas frequently due to the nature of their roles.I appreciate that it's necessary and beneficial to move consultants from time to time around the service as it gives them the chance to meet and deal with new patients and indeed gain new and fresh insights and experiences from these moves. It is also undoubtedly healthy from them to be able to engage with new clients from time to time, however it is incumbent on the service to inform the clients by some means of the move to allay their concerns and anxiety's.Thank you.
