IMG_8285.jpegThe Community Pain Management Service in North Sefton works with people to understand their pain better and help get close to the version of themselves they want to be. Combined with other strategies, this way of collaborative working can improve function, wellbeing and often pain. In order to raise awareness of the service, and how rethinking our approach to persistent pain can help, a suite of videos are currently being produced. 

Day one of filming involved several staff from the service talking about their roles, and covering important topics such as:

  • Modern day pain science in a nutshell – Chris, Clinical Lead
  • The importance of movement – Ian, Specialist Physiotherapist
  • Pain Management Programmes – Becky, Clinical PsychologistIMG_8281.jpeg
  • Psychology and pain – Liana, Trainee Health Psychologist
  • The role of a pharmacist – Mo, Specialist pharmacist
  • Pain Clinic Plus – Kev, Expert by Experience and service volunteer.

There will also be a further day of filming to capture footage of the pain service, patient groups and the ‘Gangsta Grannies’ – a group of older ladies who now regularly meet to ride their trikes along the promenade at Southport.
