Here is an Email received yesterday, 12 June 2015, from the Director of Training for Psychology Services, NHS Education for Scotland:
Strapline: Nes commissioned review
You were in touch 3 weeks ago - I have been out of the office a lot lately, sorry it has taken a while to get back to you. It was not my intention to offend you in my earlier communication- I will try to avoid this now and in the future.
You are clear that you would like to see quick progress and results from the review. Unfortunately at the moment I cant add much to what I said previously. The discussions about scope and remit with the two EBE and governance groups have not been concluded yet, and I feel its important not to close this down prematurely.
I aim to provide updates regularly and will do so again in a couple of months.

And my response today, 13 June 2015:
Strapline: Re: Nes commissioned review - my reasons for keeping up the pressure - talking therapies for people in crisis
Thank you for your Email.
Apologies for spelling it out yet again. I do it because the meaningful involvement of Experts by Experience is too important a task to be sidelined and left in a report. I have not seen the Scottish Government mental health division under Geoff Huggins do the job right. It has left me sceptical and critical. In recent years my sons have suffered because of the government's failure to act in relation to patient safety and polypharmacy.
