Pain Management Service

For inpatients

Great Western Hospital's Pain Management Service is provided on the wards by a team of nurses.

We are experienced senior nurses with specialist knowledge in pain management.

Pain nurses are supported by doctors from the Pain Management Service.

The doctors do regular ward rounds with the nurses.

We are anaesthetists who look after patients having operations and we also run the Outpatient service for the management of chronic pain problems.

See our section on Inpatients Pain Management for more.

Outpatient Pain Management Services are provided by a team of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and clinical psychologists. 

We run the Pain Management Clinic which helps people to manage chronic and long-term pain.

Treatments available include physiotherapy, drugs, acupuncture, TENS and psychological support.
