Went to the first appt which is an info session where we were treated like complete imbeciles who knew nothing about pain, patronised and told we have to do random urine drug tests, the results of which are not on a secure database and any staff member in the hospital can access them and make assumptions you are a junkie the next time you see them. I doubt I will go back.
To make it worse, it is right next to the methadone clinic and I came out and some bloke was selling his methadone to blokes in a car. Lovely. Not happy and why isn't this all told to you before you are referred so you can make an informed choice not to bother waiting 14 months for an appt only to be treated like that.
