About us

The inpatient acute pain team provides advice for managing pain after surgery. They also see patients who are not necessarily having surgery, but are suffering from severe short-term pain.

They carry out daily ward rounds at both Guy's and St Thomas', helping patients to control their pain effectively through education and guidance.  

They also provide education and training programmes for nursing, medical and pharmacy staff, to help them to care for and manage this area of care effectively.
