Our Pain Team includes three registered Nurses, a Consultant, Therapists and Psychologists, and treats patients with acute and chronic pain. They deliver advice on our wards and at outpatient clinics for more than 10,000 patient episodes a year. We work with patients following operations and major trauma as well as patients with acute or chronic pain. We also support training and management for patients with epidurals and patient-controlled pain relief.
We offer Chronic Biopsychosocial Management, which reflects the complexity of chronic pain and the impact on the patientís life, family, work and social functioning and allows us to build in coping mechanisms to ease symptoms.
Our multi-disciplinary approach and strong team working has been acknowledged nationally by the British Pain Society.
