Specialist Nurse

The Specialist Nurses who work in the pain clinic can help and support you in the management of your pain. They will work with you on both a 1:1 basis and/or in a joint or group format in the following ways:

  • Advice and support in the use of pain medication and how to use it more effectively. This may include reducing your medication if appropriate
  • Issuing and reviewing the use of a TENS machine (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)
  • Developing your understanding of long term pain and its complexities to help you move forward with self-management strategies.
  • Advice and support in the use of a SCS (Spinal Cord Stimulator) including input into the SCS Pain Management Programme.
  • Nurse-led clinics involving the review of the SCS device which may include reprogramming.
  • Input into the  4 week  and the 12 session Pain Management Programmes

Royal College of Nursing members at our Trust are taking part in strike action Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February from 7.00am to 8.00pm. This will impact services at our hospitals.

If you are due to attend an appointment and we haven't already contacted you, please come as planned.

On days where there is strike action, patients should only call 999 if it is a medical or mental health emergency (when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk).
