We help veterans enjoy a greater quality of life by teaching them how to manage pain. The Veterans PMP is the only Pain Management Programme in the UK exclusively offered for Veterans.
The Pain Management Programme is a five day residential programme run by The Centre For Veterans’ Health, with five follow up day sessions over the course of six months. The Programme is specifically designed to help Veterans who have been suffering with chronic pain to get the correct assessment, diagnosis, and treatment as quickly as possible. It is offered free of charge to Veterans from all Services and aims to help you feel empowered to return to life as you knew it, pre-trauma.
The Programme benefits from the expertise of an inter-disciplinary team of consultants in pain medicine, psychology and psychiatry, with the complimentary expertise of a specialist pain nurse and pain physiotherapist. The team are leaders in their field with extensive experience helping people with persistent pain to improve their lives.
If the programme is right for you, it could result in a range of improvements which may include:
To take part in the Programme you will first need a referral from your GP. We will send you an application form along with a form to take along with you to your GP appointment for your GP to sign.
Your application will be assessed by our specialist pain team who will make sure the course is right for you. If the clinicians agree that the course will benefit you, you will receive an invitation to attend the next Programme.
