How to Support Your Patient during Treatment With Us

Chronic pain is a complex problem that often requires a multifaceted approach.

People with chronic pain have often had it for some time before they attend a pain centre. As such there are rarely quick fixes and we tend to work with people over varying time frames between a month or two to several years.

On average we work with people for six to twelve months. This period of working with us is a period of considerable change. Trialing different interventions, developing new skills, building knowledge about chronic pain and working with different team members takes time and requires support.

As the person’s general practitioner there are many key things you can do to help support them while they work with us.
