Pain UK is an alliance of charities providing a voice for people in pain
We were founded in November 2011. Since then, our membership base has grown rapidly and we now support charities dealing with all manner of painful conditions, from head to toe.
NICE Draft Consultation on Chronic Pain
5th August 2020
Pain UK welcomes the NICE published consultation on their DRAFT guideline for the management of chronic primary pain. Pain UK will be working with its members to respond to NICE. Pain UK understands that people who live with chronic primary pain may be concerned by some of the headlines around the draft guideline, we will be sending out surveys to our members – we would like to remind people to join Pain UK to help us feedback these concerns – membership is free and we want to listen.
Call to Action
The NHS faces a difficult economic future with a focus on delivering patient centered care. The Health Minister tells us that there is currently a shortfall in the number of GP’s that is needed to deliver patient care.
Pain UK have produced a call to action document that outlines the burden of chronic pain to the NHS, society and people living with chronic pain
For People in Pain
Pain UK operates to make a significant difference for people living with pain whether that is through the support of our member charities or directly.
We are a young, ambitious and dedicated charity that have set out to achieve great things. We welcome those who want to support us along the way in doing so.
For Pain Charities
We offer training and support to the member charities, many of which are run by ‘expert patients’ and may not have access to advice on issues like lobbying, fundraising, profile raising and reaching out to young people.
We also offer membership opportunities to individuals, professionals and corporates.
