A unified solution to back pain.



The Back Pain Team is a Consultant led assessment, diagnostic and treatment planning service. All patients referred to us will be initially assessed by either a Spinal Orthopaedic Consultant or a Pain Management Consultant. In line with our multi-disciplinary approach, patients may then be referred on to Consultants from other disciplines but this process is a fully integrated part of our service and will be coordinated and managed by the Back Pain Team.
