"Dealing with constant pain"

About: Dewsbury & District Hospital / Pain Management

(as the patient),

I would just like to let you know that I attended Dewsbury District Hospital Pain Clinic. The help and commitment that the “team” has given me over the last few years has been tremendous, and without their help, expertise and knowledge about everything to do with controlling pain, I don’t think I would be here today. Special mention must go to Dr Ian Wilson and Sister Alison Elphee who are always patient, kind and caring when ever I see them. Just to let you know that I can call on them at any time for support and advice is so reassuring (although I haven’t done so, except when it is my appointment time). Please please keep this service available for people like me who has long term medical problems, especially dealing with constant pain.
