Pain – Chronic

The chronic pain service is a specialist team including consultants in pain medicine, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists and specialist nurses.  We offer a range of treatments and interventions in the management of chronic pain, some of which involve the use of medication and others which don’t.  Our aim with all treatments is to support and assist patients to manage their pain more effectively and improve their quality of life. The latter may involve patients being invited to attend our comprehensive multidisciplinary Pain Management Programme.


The Chronic Pain Management Team is a specialist service for people living with long term pain.
