Chronic Pain Management

The RNOH provides comprehensive care for patients with chronic pain (CP) resulting from a wide range of musculoskeletal and neurological problems.

Pain management services are provided by experienced specialists ensuring that patients benefit from an interdisciplinary approach. This approach is fostered by multidisciplinary ward rounds, clinics and meetings as well as combined clinics between specialties within the RNOH.

A yearly annual report is published for the public to view on how patients are improving their lives with our service (Chronic Pain Centre report 2016/2017).
