    Hi, I am undertaking a PhD in GPs’ role in chronic pain management and am keen to link with others with similar interests. I have a background in learning disabilities and mental health nursing and health commissioning.

    • Hi Tamar.
      I am a GP with a special interest in chronic pain and central sensitivity syndromes, such as fibromyalgia. I have been producing a series of podcasts exploring ideas around chronic pain and mind:body connection. My interest is in developing a primary care led structured program to explore this work with patients.
      I would love to meet to discuss the work you are doing with your PHD.

    • Hi Tamar,
      I’m happy to link up. Would you be interested in the perspective of a patient and a chronic pain sufferer? I’m a great believer in posttraumatic growth and a big fan of Professor Anthony David’s work (UCL). There are some ways to improve Quality of Life and to even thrive despite pain.
      Please reach out if you don’t mind talking to a patient not a GP.
      Cheers. Monika

      • Hi Tamar and Monika,
        I too would be happy to link up as I too believe in patient participation and who better to have on board than people who know how such illnesses feel like. Thank you Szara

    • Hi Tamar and Monika, if I can support from a patients perspective do let me know. Kind regards Cheryl

    • Hi Tamar, Monika and Cheryl,

      I am interested in this area too, especially with regards to analgesia and opiate dependence and seeking person-centred interventions for mental wellbeing. I understand there is a mind-body connection to trauma but I want to know more about how we can help people dependent on opiates.

      Best wishes, Alan
