Pain Service

Our highly skilled teams manage a wide range of painful conditions and aim to share their knowledge with patients, giving them the tools and resources to manage pain and improve their quality of life.

Our service

We provide treatment and support for patients with chronic (long-term) and acute (short-term) pain. Our chronic pain service offers outpatient clinics in locations throughout Gloucestershire.

Following assessment by our multi-disciplinary teams, we use a range of treatments to reduce pain or better manage its effects on life.

Pain Clinic

The Pain Clinic team offer medical consultations for pain. Clinics are run in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, Stroud, Cirencester and the Forest of Dean. A wide range of treatment and management options are available, including both invasive and non-invasive procedures and advice on medication.

After initial assessment, our multi-disciplinary team will use a wide range of therapeutic approaches both to attempt to relieve the pain and to equip and empower patients to manage their pain.

Pain self-management service

Pain Self-Management helps people with persistent pain develop strategies to manage pain and other associated symptoms. The multidisciplinary team includes psychologists, nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists who are based in Gloucester and Cheltenham. The aim of Pain Self-Management is to improve quality of life. We use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and mindfulness approaches to do this.
