"I would have liked more of an explanation"

About: Shropshire and Staffordshire The Princess Royal Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

Having been asked by my GP if I’d ever been to see someone in the pain clinic at an appointment some weeks ago and then on a recent appointment I asked if I could go to the pain control clinic, was surprised it was left to me if I wanted to go or not but without an explanation as to what they do.

I would like to reduce my medication for my pain but obviously it is a difficult thing to do as I am in so much pain. I would have liked more of an explanation of what the clinic does as I don’t want to waste their time.
