Based on information preferences shared with Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commission Group about engagement opportunities you would like to hear about, the CCG would like to make you aware of a listening exercise they have launched in relation to the pain management services commissioned for the Sandwell and West Birmingham population.
Pain management is a specialist service for people who are living with chronic long-term pain due to a musculoskeletal condition that has had an impact on them carrying out their usual day to day activities. There are over 200 musculoskeletal conditions which affect muscles, joints and bones such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and most commonly, back pain.
The service is accessible by GP referral for those who need help with managing their pain, with support and treatment options available to reduce pain, improve mobility and improve quality of life.
This listening exercise is part of a wider review of musculoskeletal services in Sandwell and West Birmingham and enables the CCG to listen and engage with people who have lived with chronic pain, to identify things that could be improved and help shape the way the service is delivered in the future.
The Clinical Commissioning Group would welcome the opportunity to hear from people affected by long-term pain and their relatives/ carers/ representatives and invite you to complete the online questionnaire below.
The closing date for this survey is 6 September 2019.
If you have any further queries relating to this listening exercise or would prefer to share your views by phone, please get in touch Kathryn Meredith, Commissioning Engagement Manager, on 0121 612 2789 or email SWBCCG.firstname.lastname@example.org
