"Pain Management a pleasure not a pain !"

About: City Hospital campus

I have been under the pain management team at City Campus for several years now and can offer only praise for the whole team. Yes you sometimes have a delay in outpatient clinics but I don't mind that as when its your turn you are given all the time you need to ask questions or seek advice. The Facet joint injections I have received have always been done with care and consideration and the next appointment almost comes through exactly on the date I would be phoning to say "its wearing off".You are never treated like a number but a person and one in pain at all times - little things like being offered help to get on and off treatment tables, etc is so brilliant. I would , and do recommend this department to anyone I know who has long lasting pain issues.
