 ‘The RCGP is pleased to support the campaign ‘Striving for equity in the treatment of pain’. The College believes that there is a basic human right of access to medicine to alleviate otherwise intolerable pain. All doctors should strive to ensure that all of their patients have access to appropriate controlled medicines, particularly in the area of effective palliative care and the treatment of pain.’
