Pain UK is an alliance of charities providing a voice for people in pain

Pain UK response on Opioid use in the UK for people living with pain
In reaction to the recent statement from Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Health, it is Pain UK’s position that opioids remain a vital class of medicines to mitigate pain when their use is appropriately monitored by healthcare professionals and patients. Additionally, there is a requirement for up to date education about opioids’ potential risk to health.Download Position Statement (PDF)
Call to ActionThe 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.View our member charities
