Two-thirds of GPs say long waits ‘biggest barrier’ to treatments for mental illness


I worked for 4 years for a GP practice as their practice counsellor, managing my own client list and diary. Although referral rates have increased since then I did not have lengthy waiting lists and clients were seen within 4 weeks. I then worked for a NHS Trust in a large team of counsellors for 14 years where waiting lists were often several months. Big is not always best!
