What the service does

The paediatric persistent pain service is also known as the children’s pain clinic. We provide assessment, treatment and support for children with recurrent or persistent pain.

Our clinics aim to restore your child’s normal action and improve their quality of life by:

  • helping them manage their pain
  • reducing the effect of pain on their daily life

The best way to manage pain is a partnership between your child and the health professionals working with them. There are physical, social and psychological factors to chronic pain. Our team looks at the full picture to find ways of making it more manageable for you and your child.
