  3. Injury is physical but… …the impact is also psychological, emotional, financial and social “it impacts on every aspect of your life; your work, your social life, your family, everything” (59 year old man) “and I couldn’t sort of cope with things, which is not me at all” (69 year old woman) • Multicentre longitudinal (12 months) quantitative study • 668 working age adults admitted to acute NHS Trusts in 4 study centres • (Protocol in Kendrick, D., et al., BMC Public Health, 2011.) • Nested qualitative interview study • 45 patients • 40 service providers (including 3 GPs) 18 carers SAPC 2014: Falling Through the Cracks: Patients’ Experiences of Care after an Injury

  4. “You just wish there was something for them because I don’t have time or the capacity to deal with it. I don’t even have the skill set to sit there and listen and talk somebody through that.” (Orthopaedic Surgeon) Secondary Care – clinical management of the physical injury Patients - isolated, anxious, distressed “I’ve got to stop being so afraid of doing things. […] Some days were like swimming through mud, I didn’t feel I was getting anywhere.” (68 year old woman, lower limb injury) Primary Care – relatively uninvolved post-injury; potential for improving psychological support to injured patients? “Their anxiety and depression in a way is not different from somebody who maybe lost their job or had several bereavements in the family and how the therapist would work to help them will be similar. [..] But you’re talking about quite a few months down the line because we expect most people just to cope with it and get over it.”(GP) “My GP… is absolutely brilliant and she phoned me up when I came out of hospital to find out how I was and if there was anything she could do.” (54 year old woman) SAPC 2014: Falling Through the Cracks: Patients’ Experiences of Care after an Injury
