Patient information leaflets

The Faculty of Pain Medicine has produced patient information leaflets on medications and interventions commonly used to treat persistent pain.  The leaflets were created with the help of multi-professionals as well as patient representatives and are intended to be handed out to patients when they are prescribed these medications/undertake procedures. The leaflets can be used within a variety of clinical settings including Pain Management Services, GP practice, community pharmacies and physiotherapy clinics.

Leaflets are reviewed every three years, however, we are happy to receive user feedback at any time and make revisions/updates where necessary.

We hope that you and your patients will find these accessible and easy to understand. If you have any feedback, please contact us at
