Chronic Pain

Chronic pain refers to pain that has been around for more than 3 months and isn’t usually curable.

Our services include:

  • Acute pain: We have three specialist acute pain nurses and a lead consultant aneasthetist to help patients who experience acute pain.
  • Clinical psychology: For patients who associate their pain with high levels of distress and disability.
  • Exercise: We help patients with a manageable exercise programme that fits around their chronic pain.

The Royal Derby Hospital pain management unit runs a series of pain management programmes throughout the year. These are all attended on an outpatient basis, with each group completing nine or ten sessions of half a day per week.
