Anaesthetics (Pain Management)

Anaesthetics department provide a pain management service for chronic pain patients and accepts referrals from GPs if patients are unable to control their pain.

We have clinics in the Day Surgery Unit at Croydon University Hospital.

(Services will return to Purley Hospital when the refurbishment is complete in the summer of 2013.)

Those with severe acute pain are not seen in this clinic and need to be referred to A&E.

Patients without an established diagnosis cannot be seen.

People in hospital can receive help in managing their pain from the Acute Pain Team.
