COVID-19: FPM guidance on resumption of pain services

Published: 15/05/2020

The Faculty has published Guidance on resumption of pain services following disruption by the COVID-19 pandemic

The guidance highlights considerations to help achieve the reset of pain services locally from both strategic and operational perspectives.

The content of this guidance was partly informed by the preliminary findings of a recent survey of Fellows and Members, the first of a series of situational surveys to capture the ongoing impacts of COVID-19.

We'd like to thank all those who completed this survey, and encourage you to continue engaging with future surveys. We also invite reports of experiences of all kinds, so please get in touch via

More guidance can be found on our COVID-19 evolving challenges page and in our Guidelines & Publications section.
