I was referred by my GP to Pain Management in Fife, nearly a hundred mile trip but would have tried to go anyhow until my appointment arrived. The letter more or less was ambiguous in words, details follows.
On filling details on the questionnaire I was feeling confident that help was on the way, sadly that is certainly not the case.
What is the point on going if the letter that I received states no miracle cures, no medical intervention and the basis for help is on the patient's onus to help theirselves, not for NHS Fife's to help
Excuse me! But isn't that why NHS is here? States no further treatment can be given, like medication or very unlikely there will be any new treatment available
It implies that the sole onus is with the patient, so what is the point in consulting a Doctor or any other person in pain management if you do not act to give advice to suit individual needs. That advice should be all whether medication or alternative treatments, or am I wrong in thinking this?
It stated I'd be seen by a Doctor and other professionals to help reduce chronic pain that has been around for years, do they have magic powder or once again I have to live as is, zero help.
So once again I am up against a brick wall, shocking treatment and damned disgusted is the words.
I realised what a waste of time asking for help, waste of time filling in the questionnaire, my experience of NHS Scotland is doubting that you provide any service whatsoever.
Now I will have to contact my GP explain what is wrong, that NHS Fife Dunfermline states they do not provide any treatment or medication or advice via Doctor, Physio' and anyone else in so called Pain Management, very angry patient.
