'It's like night and day, I have more confidence, I'm talking to folk, I'm laughing! The pain clinic has especially helped me and I use relaxation techniques to manage my pain. What a difference it has all made. The main improvement is to my mental health. All these things have helped give me purpose again.'

Margaret, user of Signposting services in Aberdeenshire, on the difference she has noticed in herself since using the service.
