Response from Denis O'Brien, Assistant Director of Nursing & Leitrim Community Mental Health Team Co-ordinator, Sligo Leitrim Mental Health Services

Dear Laura

Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your experience of attending clinics in Carrick-on-Shannon,, Drumshanbo and Mohill. I am sorry that you have had to wait up to 2-3 hours to be seen by your Consultant for less than 10 minutes and I wish to apologise to you.

I have brought your concerns to our Community Mental Health Team. We are currently looking at methods of reducing the number of people attending the clinics, which will have a positive impact on reducing the waiting time and increase the length of time spent with our Consultant. This will benefit all people who attend the various clinics..

Thank you for providing your feedback and once again I do apologise for the length of clinic waiting time.

Kind Regards

Denis O Brien
