  • Date lodged: Tuesday, 15 November 2022
  • Motion reference: S6M-06779.1
  • Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, 16 November 2022

As an amendment to motion S6M-06779 in the name of Humza Yousaf (Improving Care and Services for People with Chronic Pain), leave out from “notes the actions” to end and insert “notes the concerns from some chronic pain patients regarding the Scottish Government’s lack of meaningful engagement with their representatives, which is causing upset and distrust; supports the focus on delivering person-centred care and improving access to local support for pain; recognises the efforts to increase NHS staff skills and knowledge of chronic pain and its impact, and agrees with the commitment to improve the consistency and quality of pain management services across Scotland; regrets, however, the continued reports of many vulnerable people with chronic pain being forced into unsuitable self-management pathways, with increased pressures on primary care, due to a lack of access to specialist services; recommends that the Scottish Government works in partnership with patient groups to ensure a truly collaborative approach to improving the treatment and wellbeing of chronic pain patients, and calls on Scottish Government ministers to protect specialist chronic pain services, and provide greater transparency around waiting times for return patients.”
