PICS is delighted to have been asked by the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Board to incorporate the Bassetlaw Pain Service into the current PICS Pain Management offer.

PICS started taking new referrals for the service from 1 August 2022 and expects to see new patients for their first appointment by the autumn. We will transition existing patients into the service from 1 April 2023.

Work has begun apace to incorporate the service, including finding space for clinics close to Bassetlaw residents, and collaborating with colleagues to integrate into local pathways.

Dr Kelvin Lim, Medical Director of PICS said:

“This direct award is testament to the confidence commissioners have in our holistic model  and the value our effective service offers the wider healthcare system.”

“We have proven the positive outcomes of our holistic Pain Management Service for people who are supported to understand and manage their conditions to live a better life.”
