I moved house twice in one year due to unforseen circumstances and also had a new phone number. I was in therapy and was having regular check ups with the psychiatrists at Marcievicz House in Sligo. Although I updated them numerous times with my change of address and number they kept sending letters to my old address and hadn't updated my number. This meant I missed many appointments. I must have updated my info close to 10 times either by calling the reception and, on one occasion, giving my new details to the psychiatrist directly when I managed to make an appointment myself.
I felt very angry as being a mental health service user it is very important that the people whose care I was under should have made sure to have the correct details. It felt like they were badly organised and I felt forgotten about.
I have since then called and asked to be removed from their care as it causes me too much frustration when my ex delivers me yet another letter that they have sent to my old address and it still has my old phone number on it.
