Advocacy Past Case Study 2

Client with Chronic Back Pain who attended a pain clinic at his G.P. practice had a very difficult relationship with his doctor. As client’s back pain was getting worse and was no longer being adequately managed by his current medication regime his doctor was refusing to increase his pain killers nor was he prepared to put him on a new pain killer. Fairway’s client was housebound with pain and was self- referring by taxi to his local Accident & Emergency department in the middle of the night to be prescribed effective pain killers. Client approached Fairway Advocacy who attended the pain clinic with him where his doctor prescribed him a more powerful painkiller which controlled his pain allowing him to continue to live a pain free life.
