Provision of specialist residential chronic pain services in Scotland
On 2 September, the Scottish government launched a consultation on the future provision of specialist intensive chronic pain management services for Scottish residents. The consultation seeks views on possible options for the provision of such services in Scotland. At present, Scotland does not have a specialist residential service, which means that Scottish residents who require specialist intensive pain management services have to travel to the Bath Centre for Pain Services in Somerset to receive these. The consultation sets out a number of options for the provision of a specialist service in Scotland. The consultation will close on 27th October 2013.
