Kerry Ellis started this petition to Kerry Ellis

As a proposed cost cutting exercise a private organisation has claimed it can provide pain services to patients cheaper than the service currently operating in Kingsmill Hospital. On further investigation there will only be consultating services available, anyone needing steroid injections, ketamine or lidacaine infusions will still need to go somewhere else (possibly back to Kingsmill for this which then defeats the cost cutting exercise in the first place)

Over 2000 patients will be affected from this area you may have to go back and forth between clinics as there is no consultant or Doctor at the private site. There will be longer delays in first referrals and time between appointments as the private organisation struggles to keep up with demand.This change will affect a very dedicated team of consultants, nurses, HCA and admin staff from the Anesthesia and Pain relief department. Families will be affected, workforce will be affected, as individuals whose daily battles with chronic pain conditions will now need to undergo further torment of longer waiting times, lack of pain relief available and specialised knowledge of their conditions being overlooked.

By signing this petition you are asking that voices of these patients are heard and that you understand that they battle enough, please keep this much needed service at Kingsmill Hospital.
