Just to say that whilst I feel, on the whole, let down by mental health services I feel very met in the mental distress of chronic pain.
The consultant clinical psychologist in charge of pain management at Torbay works with me at Newton Abbott Hospital. I find her warm, intelligent, engaged and an inspiration. She is friendly and open with staff and patients alike, I feel like a human being in a positive hospital community that cares.
This contrasts greatly with feeling dehumanised during an inpatient stay at Torbay. Newton Abbott models an ideal hospital environment that is genuinely healing even if cure is not possible!
