"care and treatment in the pain clinic"

About: Bishop Auckland Hospital

I would recommend the pain clinic at Bishop Auckland to anyone in pain.

The consultants and staff are so friendly and take great care to explain the treatments available and inform you of what is happening during the procedures.

The after care is great with a welcome cup of tea with toast (or sandwich) while you rest before being discharged.

I had 6 facet joints in my lower back injected under local anaesthetic and the pain relief is amazing.
