    Hi all.
    I’m afraid I am unable to make the meeting today. I have one comment which I was reticent to make because it is unpleasant to rain on a parade. I do however have one thought on this project which has been nagging at me for a little while, and I raise it in good faith, and as an honest point for discussion. It relates to the concept of w…Read more

    • Thanks Will
      I agree tackling both is ideal. I read somewhere though that inhalers account for 3% of the NHS carbon footprint (others will know more than me about this), so that does seem pretty important.

    Hi Sonal,
    Thank you for your interest. Yes it is certainly a challenge. The new NICE guidance recommends very little for primary pain, but we may feel pressure to prescribe when it feels like there is no good alternative.

    Hi Louise,

    • This is brilliant Will – great to see that you have some momentum behind this work now, and that it is being worked on as part of the National Clinical Entrepeneurs programme. It struck a chord with so many of us – will try and make the 14th June meeting!

    • Hello Will, I am very much interested in taking part in your programme. As a mental health practitioner for over 15 years and someone who suffers with long term pain management I look forward to contributing in anyway possible.

    • Hi Will, I’d be interested to know more about this. Reducing opiate prescribing in chronic pain is high up the agenda but I am concerned about ensuring we can offer people an alternative to support with their self-management.
