"I am walking much better without all the pain"

About: Barnsley PCT / Tissue viability service

(as the patient),

I was having a lot of pain in my left leg and nothing that had been prescribed for me was helping relieve it. Having the veins removed already, I was worried. I saw an advert in the Independent which was asking people who like me were having problems with their legs to visit a a tent in Barnsley for an examination. I rang and booked an appointment. I went, and was examined by Lynne Hepworth who assured me that something would be done and arranged for me to have another appointment at her clinic. I went to Worsborough health centre and could not have had better attention than what i was given. Everybody was really caring and then I was examined and had my leg measured. I was then given a prescription for two pairs of support stockings. I am now using these and find am walking much better without all the pain. I say thank you to everybody who attended to me at the Worsborogh Health Centre
