"My child was a patient on a pain ..."

About: Royal National Hospital For Rheumatic Diseases

(as the patient),

What I liked

My child was a patient on a pain management programme. It changed my child's life for the better and therefore ours. The care at the time, the follow up since and the accessibility of the care team has been excellent. This programme has improved my child's life immeasurably.

What could be improved

Nothing the hospital can do anything about - but all too often staff were struggling to work in inadequate accommodation for the programme.

Anything else?

A fantastic team of people, doing incredible work to help young people cope with chronic pain.
