Persistent Pain Team

The Persistent Pain Service is a multidisciplinary team consisting of Pain Consultants (Anaesthetists), Physiotherapists, an Occupational Therapist and a Psychologist.

The main aim of the service is not to treat the pain directly but about teaching our patients skills and strategies which they can develop and use to manage their pain more effectively. We aim to improve our patients physical function, fitness and emotional wellbeing. Most patients are managed in this way, however there are always certain patients who benefit from a medical review and possible intervention with the Pain Consultants.
