Newcastle’s Chronic Pain Management Service is run by a well established multi-professional team of experts with many years experience in treating a wide range of long standing (chronic) pain-related problems.

Our specialists recognise that persistent pain can interfere with every aspect of life including work, relationships with friends and family and the ability to take part in activities which bring us pleasure.

Our aim is to help people with persistent pain to reduce the level of pain they experience as well as helping them to accept and take control of their pain so they can live a fulfilling life again.

We take time in our consultations to help people understand their pain, where often more conventional approaches to diagnosis and treatments have failed to give the answers patients are seeking.

We encourage patients to make informed choices about the options available to them and to develop an individual plan of treatment. Information following clinic appointments will be sent to the patients, the general practitioner and other specialists involved in the care of the patient.
