How the chronic pain management service works 

Pain Management Centre at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery 

This is an outpatient service. Once a referral is accepted by the pain management centre the patient booking team will be in touch about the first appointment with one of the assessment team.


The assessment appointment enables us to consider how pain is affecting a particular individual and to develop the most appropriate intervention plan for managing it.
