Thank you to all our patients who took the time to complete our recent patient consultation. A number of key themes emerged from your feedback. These themes and our responses to them can be seen here.
Archwood leading the way in Pain Management
Dr Parker and Caroline Austin (our Practice Pharmacist) together with 12 Archwood patients are involved in a ground breaking project to try to reduce the use of morphine-like medication among patients living with pain. The project has won national funding to work with Stockport's Pain Service on this and we hope it will be an important step towards improving pain management for many of our patients.
