A letter’s just flopped through the door from my local Primary Health Trust (PCT). It’s about my request for Habit Reversal Therapy (HRT) which I’ve talked about before. HRT could help me develop strategies to turn some of my more damaging tics, like chest banging, into ones with less impact.
I’ve waited over a year to hear from the PCT and all the letter says (now it’s finally arrived) is that they’ve agreed to fund an assessment for the treatment and that depending on the outcome they may make funding available.
Three doctors, including two consultants, have already assessed me and supported my application for this treatment, which consists of 12 sessions. If it takes a year to get funding for every session, it’ll be 2022 before I can look forward to completing the course.
