Information and resources for patients

What do we do

We run outpatient services from Victoria, Stobhill and Inverclyde hospitals. Our Pain Management Programme is based at Lightburn Hospital.

About chronic pain

Chronic pain is different from ‘normal’, or ‘acute’ pain! Strategies that work well for acute pain are often less successful – or can even make things worse – in chronic pain conditions.

How to be referred to the service

Your GP or secondary care specialist can refer you to the NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde Pain Service. Most new referrals are offered an introductory information session and brief telephone chat before the first clinic appointment. This is to give you a chance to see what we do in the pain clinic, and let us know how you hope we can help you.

About the team

We are a multidisciplinary team of Doctors, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Pharmacists, Physiotherapists and Psychologists. You may see one or more of us at different stages of your journey through the pain service.
