One in four adults prescribed addictive medicines, says PHE review


GPs responsible for mortality and real fact people suffer sadly from numerous forms of chronic pain. Considering 6 months plus to pain clinic or 12 months to get OPA and almost no available talking therapies etc "I am in agonising chronic pain - want to talk about it? - I'd rather have some respite to function please" WHAT EXACTLY DO WE DO IN THE REAL WORLD? Can someone please answer from NHSE who actually works day to day seeing real patients in pain.
