In recent years medical research evidence has pointed to the harmful effects of long term opiate use in non-cancer pain. Therefore, we are running monthly chronic pain review clinics to help patients look for alternative ways of managing their pain.

There are a number of alternative ways of managing chronic pain and some of these options are listed below. We have enclosed information leaflets too.
