Chronic Pain Service

Our services

The outpatient pain service is a team of pain specialists that includes doctors, nurses, psychologists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

We see patients who suffer from long-term or chronic pain. In most cases, there is no straightforward cure or solution. We aim to support and help you to manage your pain by encouraging physical activity and mobility, helping you to reduce the distress caused by pain and increase your quality of life.

Patients can only be referred to this service by their hospital consultant. You cannot be referred to this service by your GP.

Information for patients

At your first appointment you will be assessed by a doctor. This may include a physical examination. Follow up reviews are undertaken by a team of specialist nurses.

Please bring with you a list of all your current and previous medications, including GP prescriptions if possible.

We aim to make your visits as informative as possible and you will be asked to complete some paperwork before your appointment. This will help us to plan your treatment and evaluate your progress.

Should you require assistance in completing the paperwork, please inform the reception staff on arrival.
