Pain management


Our philosophy is to bring 'whole person care' to each patient, approaching mind and body as a whole, to best help patients with their pain and its consequences. It is for this whole person, multi-disciplinary way of working, that our unit has developed an excellent reputation among local doctors, patients, and others, over the last 14 years.

The pain management service at the Royal Free London Trust is a large and multi-disciplinary service, spread across several sites. It is mainly based out of Edgware Community Hospital. The team offers a range of treatments designed to improve quality of life and manage long-term pain problems. As well as outpatient clinics and theatre day-case treatments, we also offer pain management programmes and treat in-patients with post-operative or non-surgical acute pain.

The clinical team includes Pain Management consultants, physiotherapists, psychologists, and nurses all specialising in pain management. We also have an excellent team of administrators helping to manage the service.
