Here’s the scenario: John has a sore knee, it’s been bothering him for some time. He goes to the GP who writes him a prescription for some pain killers and sends him on his way. John takes the pain killers, which temporarily takes the pain away, but not enough to enable him to get back to football. In fact even sitting for long periods has become a problem.
Obviously, the pain killers are treating the symptom and not the cause, so therefore it’s no surprise that the problem doesn’t go away. Unfortunately this scenario is replayed time and time again across the country. The NHS is stretched and often patients who aren’t viewed as a ‘priority’ are overlooked and left to find their own solution.
