The Pain Team

Specialists and what they do

Depending on the complexity of your case, your management plan may be created immediately, or the clinicians may prefer to discuss your pain further at a multidisciplinary meeting. Following this initial assessment and plan you will return to see one or more of the individuals as an outpatient. There are printable and audio drug information leaflets, as well as information on some common procedures, available on this site. If you have any questions about your pain management plan please ask your doctor or specialists for further information.
