Summary

Mr C complained about a change in his pain medication and said that he suffered significant pain as a result.

We took independent advice from a medical adviser. We found that the decision to change Mr C's pain medication was reasonable and that this was made following an appropriate and adequate assessment of his pain. We did not uphold the complaint.
