Chronic pain is a long standing pain that persists beyond the usual recovery period or occurs along with a chronic health condition, such as arthritis. Chronic pain may be ‘on’ and ‘off’ or continuous. It may affect people to the point that they can’t work, eat properly, take part
in physical activity, or enjoy life. We are keen to start a support group for people experiencing chronic pain and captured this feedback from people who came to our consultation event.
People who attended the consultation want the group to help them:
• Get information
• Explore stress management techniques
• Share experiences and learn from each other
• Support each other
• Get advocacy support when trying to access medical support in GP surgeries and hospitals
• Overall have their voice heard.
A huge thanks to NHS – West Yorkshire and Harrogate Charities Fund for funding this group.
