COVID-19 continues to impact on our pain management services and we are sorry if you are experiencing disruption. Arrangements are being made for those on our waiting lists to be assessed as soon as we can do and we will continue to update this page. If you have been referred by your GP please be reassured that you will be offered an appointment as soon as possible.
We know that living with pain is difficult at the best of times and that uncertainty and worry can make pain more difficult to manage for many. We put together a self-care pack in April 2020 to support service users at home and this contains advice, suggestions and links to all sorts of resources. If you are new to our service or would like to learn a bit more about how chronic pain works please visit the 'What is Chronic Pain?' link below or check out the Flippinpain website, which we love.
We also want to make you aware that My Live Well With Pain is running an online Footsteps Festival for people with Chronic Pain. There are lots of different ‘tents’ to visit and places available in many online classes, all free of charge. The festival ends in April 2021 so please do book your place quickly.
If you need to contact us, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01983 534722. Please bear with us in these unusual times. We are thinking of you and looking forward to seeing you again.
