Referring into the service

The following people can refer patients into the west Essex Community Pain Management Service:

  • GPs within the West Essex CCG
  • MSK physiotherapists within the Essex Partnership University Trust (EPUT)
  • Rheumatology, orthopaedic and A&E consultants at Princess Alexandra Hospital

Consultants from outside the West Essex CCG should liaise with patient GPs to make referrals into the service. Referrals should only be for individuals over the age of 18 with non-malignant MSK pain.
