Chronic Pain Service

We deliver a chronic pain service on an out-patient basis. Our aim is to give high quality care based on evidence and current recommendations. We believe everyone living with chronic pain has the right to live well, access updated information, support and interventions. This will help them and their carers understand how best to manage their pain.
Appointments are carried out either face to face or via telephone. The consultant will agree a suitable management plan with you.

Acute Pain Service

The acute pain service is an inpatient service only.

The acute pain team gives safe and effective pain management for patients during their hospital admission across the Trust.
Our aim is to offer effective pain control to both surgical and medical inpatients with minimal side effects. And we aim to ease pain to an acceptable level for each individual patient.

The clinical nurse specialists assess patients on a daily basis throughout the hospital. We help make sure patients receive multimodal pain relief and minimise side effects. We oversee the use of modern analgesic techniques including epidurals, regional anaesthetic infusions and patient controlled analgesia (PCA). We support the trauma ward at Hull Royal Infirmary. We see patients who have traumatic injuries and / or rib fractures who need multimodal approach for effective pain relief. The service also regularly teaches doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals. We see patients that have been referred via Lorenzo. We offer advice and support to clinical staff. We do not offer discharge planning advice on analgesic regimes. Patients must already be set up on a regular analgesic regime before they leave, and pain controlled.
