Are you living with physical pain? Share your experiences
We are asking people aged over 18 years to share their experiences of living with physical pain. Your answers are important as they will help to shape the design of services, as the NHS will be re-purchasing (commissioning) services from April 2023 to help people see the right person/clinician at the muscular skeletal services.
We are concerned for residents and their families who are struggling to afford to pay for the care they have been assessed as needing. Many are now struggling financially with some going into debt to maintain the care they need or going without some of the care.
We are asking local people to send examples of poorly written NHS appointment letters, emails or texts. With your support, we can identify how local health services in West Sussex can improve their communications.
I didn’t know about Healthwatch but I called them on the suggestion of a friend. I had quite a long story... it really helped me to talk it through with someone, to see a way forward and to point me in the right direction. Thank you.
