About our pain management service
We provide an integrated pain service, covering both acute and chronic pain. We also see patients with cancer pain and sickle crisis. We have strong links with our palliative care team and haematology team.
We aim to provide high quality pain control as well as improvement in patient function and wellbeing.
We treat both inpatients and outpatients across hospital. We see around 2000 patients in clinic per year with complex pain issues as well as our inpatients and interventional cases.
We help patients with a broad range of chronic pain problems, especially spinal pain, to improve their pain control and quality of life. We may request tests such as MRI and nerve conduction studies to work out the cause of their pain. We use a holistic approach to pain control, as one method does not work for all.
