"Provision of pain relief"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

Anything else?

During my stay I found pain relief was offered, but was limited to paracetamol following .my knee replacement operation.. I complained direct to the Chief Executive by letter and eventually action was taken to revise pain management in thgi area of surgery.

Response from Darent Valley Hospital

We are sorry to read that the paracetamol was insufficent to address the level of pain that you were experiencing. It is good to see that action was taken to revise pain management following your comments.
