Acute pain team

This specialist team helps patients who are in severe pain following surgery.

Staff are highly skilled and experienced clinicians who can look at different treatment options available to patients.

They are based at Southampton General Hospital, but assist patients throughout the Trust by going to the wards.

Treatment options might involve drugs and painkillers, but could also involve diversionary therapy such as music and massage.
