The chronic pain service is provided in a holistic manner to deal with pains associated with distress and poor functions with the aid of Patient reported outcome measurements. The goal of interventions, using medical psychological and rehabilitational methods, is to enable sufferers to function better in their lives and self manage, even when total pain relief is not achieved.

We aim to conduct the management with patient as an informed member to conduct their long term care. We also share printed information and holistic assessment reports with patients and GPs.
