Helping people with ongoing pain reach their goals

Coronavirus: pain service update

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, please read our advice and information before sending any referrals.

Our approach

Our main aim is to help you achieve your goals. We want to help you to do more of what you want to do, especially to participate in the activities that give your lives a sense of vitality and meaning.

To do this, our pain management programme helps you develop skills to respond to pain, and the distress that often accompanies it, in new ways.

We try to help you to 'drop the struggle' with pain, rather than reducing or curing pain.

The programme includes a combination of physical exercise and psychological skills training, designed to start with small steps and gradually build capabilities.

We focus on individual goals. For example, goals of previous patients have included walking without a stick, reducing medication, returning to playing football and starting voluntary work.

We want to help you make lifelong changes.
