Pain Matters 75 – Out Monday 25 May

Our new issue, Pain Matters 75, is due to come out on Monday 25 May. As this issue marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the very first Pain Concern (UK) Lothian Group newsletter, later to become the Pain Matters we know today, we have gone back to where it all started. The Lothian Group was a patient support group set up by members of the Astley Ainslie Hospital pain management programme, so it seems appropriate that this issue is being guest-edited by the Chronic Pain Management Service from NHS Lothian, based at the same hospital.

This issue’s theme is compassion-focused therapy, with the team showing the different ways they use compassion as part of a holistic pain management approach. A lot has changed in the world since our last issue, and here at Pain Concern, we think that compassion is something which we could all use more of at the moment.
