Dr Bennett provided excellent mental health care.


Followed up referral to ensure external service was provided.

THIS IS TO UPDATE AND REPLACE PREVIOUS REPORT FOR TWO REASONS 1. ADDITIONAL CLARIFICATION 2. WHEN FILLING IN THE FORM HERE - AND ANSWERING THE FOLLOWING QUESTION 'WHAT WE COULD HAVE DONE BETTER BOX' IT DOESNT SHOW UP WITH THAT IN THE REPORT - SO COMMENTS ARE OUT OF CONTEXT. THANK YOU I don't go to the doctors often and try and resolve problems myself, but after months of trying to resolve a severe skin condition in which my face had swollen and I now couldn't open my eyes fully, I finally phoned the doctors only to be told a doctor would not speak to me - I should go and see a pharmacist and until I had tried at least three different types of creams the doctor would not speak with me. I had a temperature of 40.1, BP of 125/77 and it was painful to even wear clothes. With my worsening condition the last thing I wanted to do was be amongst people nor waste time and money to address symptoms and not cause. I went private. Blood tests and consultations resolved the issue without any creams.


What could you have done better? 1. Have a doctor speak with me 2. Asked qualifying questions to check age, severity, duration, other symptoms, ability to access other services 3. Show you care and you are not just looking for excuses not to see people

Disgusted with the response and lack interest - I have since resolved the problem myself by going private.


1 - Spoken with a doctor 2 - Asked qualifying questions to check the sevrity, duration of the problem or whether it could have been something life threatening such as meningitis, covid etc.

I feel I have to write this re 2 earlier reviews. Dr Sophie Galloway has literally saved my life on more than one occasion and the nonsense that has been said is absurd! Over the last 7 years I have had severe mental health and medical issues and without her compassion, empathy, time and always always availability to talk I most certainly would not be here today! She is so caring and goes out of her way to help. Please ignore the rubbish written earlier- she is a Saint.

I want to complain about the terrible lack of mental Health awareness and care by a ‘partner’ doctor that is quite frankly shockingly unaware of addiction and mental health. Steyning health centre will have nothing to do with anything ‘addiction’ related problem ...no worries I will go elsewhere as I have BUT does that give your doctors the right to them question and criticise plans you’ve made with an alternative charity in a different city???? . What’s really disgusting is how your main doctor (dr Galloway) should NEVER EVER MEET/advise/speak to anyone who has had an addiction (she’s clearly extremely judgemental and ill equipped to deal with/understand/empathise even in a pedestrian way; how you treat a recovering addict. )She will patronise, berate, judge, make you feel less important than a piece of mud she’s just walked through, person to deal with anyone who has ever been depressed, anxious and as I said addiction..,..you will be treated like a stupid junkie that chose your path and can control your body and urges and so one ‘chose and keeps choosing’ to be an addict!! She will chastise you over the phone; “You need to just stop! Just stop it!!” And when you work with another company as steyning healthcare won’t deal with mental health you’ll be humiliated and made to feel ashamed.....more ashamed and disgusted with yourself than you already feel. ‘I can’t prescribe you anything with all the other STUFF you are on!!’ I’m on one medication.. ?!


Everything!
