We live in an age of patients being ‘over-diagnosed’. For example, one’s blood pressure could be a little high, due to anxiety, poor sleep or too much coffee – does this warrant a script for high blood pressure medication?
Some patients, whilst waiting for surgery, are in chronic pain – despite exhausting all avenues of treatment. Many GP’s are reluctant to treat them or consult with them on a regular basis. Here at Montville Health Centre, we welcome these patients and strive to help you manage your pain. Where neccesary, we prescribe narcotic drugs such as morphine in certain cases, as we consider pain and musculoskeletal medicine, basic general practice!
