Vision and aims

We have one vision, and that is to help people improve their quality of life. It’s why we exist and it’s what we care passionately about.
Our services are wholly designed to focus on the patient experience and what really makes a difference to them; being seen in the right place, at the right time, by the right clinician. It’s exactly what a patient wants, and it’s helped countless people improve their quality of life.

Patient Resources

Accelerated Development Programme in Pain [ADPP]

‘Patient Experts’

The ADPP will be a programme and platform that provides education, evidence, support, well-being and opportunity for those patients that are looking to live well with pain and help others in the future. You may be a patient that is currently living well with pain and are keen to help others on that journey. Or you might just want to better understand how living well with pain can help improve life for yourself and others.
