Pain services

Our team of consultants, specialist nurses and psychologists will care for you if you have chronic pain.

Our specialist team carry out treatments and give you advice and support in our outpatient clinics in Stockton, Hartlepool and Peterlee for people who have:

  • chronic pain
  • acute pain following surgery

We use different treatments to take care of and manage chronic and long term pain to help improve your quality of life, including:

  • acupuncture
  • transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) to help reduce pain and muscle spasms
  • recommended medications
  • nerve blocks
  • injections, including those for back pain

Thank you for making a difference to my life.The nursing staff are compassionate and caring and really listen to what is the matter with me.

Making a referral

You will be referred to us by your GP. GPs should make their referrals through Choose and Book.

In hospital

Our team may see you in hospital if you have had an operation and you have been given pain relief through a vein or in your back through an epidural. They will help to manage your pain and speed up your recovery.

Outpatient clinics

We see new patients and review patients in our clinics. Sometimes you may not need to come to a clinic and we will speak to you on the phone.
