I chair the North West Pain Group, which holds regular monthly meetings for Pain Medicine Consultants in the North West Region. It is currently well established that early referral to a specialist pain team has been shown to improve outcomes in patients with chronic pain in multiple studies. Together with my team I will ensure that your assessment is thorough and treatment is started expeditiously avoiding unnecessary delays and helping you regain control of your life sooner. Early intervention for chronic pain can improve quality of life and reduce the risk of further disability.
