Guidance published on commissioning of local pain services

The Faculty of Pain Medicine has published a new guidance document entitled Local Commissioning of Specialist Services for Pain.

Many specialist pain clinicians and NHS managers are involved presently in discussion with local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) with respect to establishment of specialist pain services in their area.

This document provides recommendations that are aimed at assisting this process, especially the provision of effective and safe pain services that provide a high quality patient experience and outcome.
