Experiences of health and social care services for people with fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia Report

Following the engagement sessions at the Fibro Active Groups in Erewash, it was agreed that the experiences may have more power if presented together rather than using the usual information sharing protocols that are used by Healthwatch Derbyshire.

Participants at the engagement sessions were not asked specific questions, but instead were invited to talk more generally about their experiences of getting a diagnosis of their condition, support from health professionals, accessing treatment and accessing other forms of support, including support groups.

The engagement sessions consisted of two group discussions with a total of 22 people. In Long Eaton there were 13 people; 11 female and two male and in Ilkeston there were nine people; seven female and two male.

The purpose of this summary paper is to highlight the themes and trends that emerged during the engagement activity and present individuals comments.
