"Pain management group: a wonderful idea"

About: City Health Care Partnership CIC / Pain management clinics

(as the patient),

Last week I atteneded my first (one of four) pain management clinics. I arrived at the orchard park Health centre very sceptical that I would be able to be helped... but , I walked out elated, after meeting another 20 people, all from different walks of life different ages, size and creed.... I realised I wasn't the only one trying to manage my life around cronic pain, and the frustrations I felt, others were feeling too... what a wonderful idea to get people together to talk about their pain, and linda kept the group going so well on how to manage pain.... I am looking forward to the next 4 weeks...

Thank you cosymo for sharing your experience with the City Health Care Partnership CIC Pain Management Service.

I am pleased you found the Pain Management Group so supportive and that you found benefit in realising you were not alone, and that with support you will be able to develop coping strategies in order to manage your pain better. I am also pleased that you are now looking forward to attending further groups.

I will share your comment with Lynda and the rest of the Pain Management Team who will be very pleased to receive such positive feedback. Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience.
