Commission NICE to Review Guidelines on Chronic Pain (Published April 2021)

Around 15.5 million people suffer from Chronic Pain (Verus Arthrtis, 2021). A number of commonly used and vital treatments for pain relief and management are no longer recommended, and we believe the new guidelines do not meet the needs of people suffering from chronic pain.

Experts on pain have said that taking painkillers away from those in desperate need is a cruel health policy: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/apr/09/painkillers-cruel-health-policy-nice-guidelines

The review should consider evidence and statements provided by relevant stakeholders, organisations and campaign groups.

Experts have argued that because chronic pain has such an important impact on the lives of people who live with it, that every tool available is needed to help in its management.
