Finding a new GP

Postby lostmemarbels » Tue Sep 17, 2013 1:42 pm

Hello I'm trying to find a new GP in the Bristol, Keynsham, area with experience of pain management, Fibro, or just an understanding of what we need.
I would be very grateful for any help or information you have.

:welcome:

Im not in the bristol area but can suggest that you contact GP sugeries around your area and ask the receptionist if there is a GP that specializes in fibro / chronic pain.

Failing that you can ask for a referal to you local pain clinic

You could also see if there are any support groups in your area and get in touch with them to see if they have any recommendations for GP surgeries, either ones to try or even ones to avoid due to their attitudes etc.
