Future Provision of Specialist Residential Chronic Pain Management Services in Scotland, 28/04/14 [S]

This consultation report sets out the Scottish Government’s response to the independent social research report ‘The Provision of Specialist Residential Chronic Pain Services in Scotland: Analysis of Consultation Responses’. These reports follow the consultation period which ran from 2 September to 27 October 2013.

The consultation has shown overwhelming support for the development in Scotland of a specialised residential chronic pain management service provided by a Centre of Excellence at a single location.

Work is now in progress to take forward the establishment of the new specialised residential chronic pain management service, and every effort is being made to ensure that the new service will be established as soon as possible. Further announcements will be made at key points in the process, including when the location of the service is confirmed.

For full details see the Scottish Government website.
