Feeling hopeless this Christmas?


I heard of an adult who attempted to obtain anti depressants for 3 days in a row in the run up to Christmas Eve but Drs in Urgent Care would not prescribe. It was suggested he turn to his GP but sadly he didn't have one. 111 suggested the Crisis Team but unfortunately this was not an option because of prior abuse by the Crisis Team. What greater need is there in Urgent Care but to give someone hope and the desire to believe life is worth living. It seems that not all NHS staff are aware of the hopelessness a human being can feel!
