Our specialist services within pain medicine include Paediatric Chronic Pain, Facial pain clinics, Pelvic pain clinics, combined clinics with Drug deaddiction Specialist, Sessions in LOROS for complex cancer pain and a successful Pain Management Programme.

The paediatric chronic pain clinic is the only such clinic in the whole of Midlands. We have received a National Award in 2016 for our innovation in the Pain workshop for very young children; this workshop is quoted as an example for practice of excellence by the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

The scope of surgical practice at the hospitals offers exciting and varied clinical opportunities for consultant anaesthetists and there is continued support for non-clinical professional activities both inside and outside the trust.

UHL is fully committed to continuing medical education for consultants. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to departmental quality improvement activity and the clinical supervision of postgraduate trainees in Anaesthesia.
