Pain Consultants

Pain Consultants

The Medical component of the pain centre consists of 6 consultants, experienced in the treatment of acute, chronic and perioperative pain.

They work closely with the nursing, physiotherapy and clinical psychology teams.

The medical team roles include:

  • Acute pain ward rounds – assessing and treating pain experienced by inpatients within the hospital. These patients may be suffering from pain post-operatively, or have other complex medical or surgical issues contributing to chronic pain.
  • Outpatient clinics – the assessment of a variety of medical conditions related to chronic pain. As part of this process interventions may be offered as well as the beginning of the rehabilitation pathway working closely with the physiotherapy and clinical psychology teams. Medication management is also integral to medical assessment.
  • Medical Procedures and Interventions.
  • Medical support to  Pain Management Programs
  • Teaching  - The pain centre is a vibrant learning environment supporting the development of a variety of trainees, including various levels of pain, anesthetic and palliative care junior doctors. Curriculum development for undergraduates has also been a recent focus of our efforts.
  • Research – The pain centre is actively involved in research collaborating with the Human Pain Research Group at Salford Royal in understanding the complex neurobiological changes which occur in chronic pain as well as in Spinal Cord Stimulation. 
  • Major Trauma – The medical team also support the assessment and treatment of major trauma and the inpatient rib fracture treatment service.
