What we do

We help patients manage acute pain (this is pain which starts suddenly, we usually know what has caused the pain and we know how long it will last).

We also work with patients who experience long-lasting pain. This is chronic pain.

The aim of our services is to help people to cope with and manage their pain as best they can, so they can limit the impact of pain on their life as much as possible.

For information about pain management, please visit the NHS Choices website.

Additional information can be sourced in the monthly pain management e-newsletter written by the pain management team.
