A panel of cross sector experts will explore how the pandemic has hugely altered the treatment of patients with chronic conditions, and specifically delayed the pain treatments of an estimated 150,000 people.
It will discuss how best we can look after the increased number of ‘left behind’ patients requiring pain management, and how we can build clinician understanding and education on the available solutions.
It will examine what post-Covid pain management could look like, how we can use technology to appropriately care for complex patients (e.g. taking controlled drugs, needing care at

As a working parent, life has always been a juggling act… during this crisis I’m dropping a few balls and I feel totally out of control.
I have always been an organised person. When I say organised, I mean that the kids get to school, I get to work, dinner is cooked, clothes are fresh, the house is clean, and we have time for fun.
The last few days our worlds have turned upside down. The kids don’t go to school, my work is not what I know anymore and I’m too scared to go, dinners are not the usual (we had spam fritters and tinned potatoes last night), clothes are boiled washed, the h
I have just finished a stint of four long days working as an outreach nurse. Many of our staff are self-isolating. As outreach nurses, we come into contact with many different types of patient on a daily basis. We could be seeing a surgical patient with sepsis to a pre-eclamptic lady on maternity, it just depends on who needs you.
The varied case load is what I enjoy; the work can be stressful, but we have numerous algorithms, policies and procedures that we follow. These policies and procedures keep our patient safe and also gives us evidence-based approach to the treatment we give.

The coronavirus pandemic is top of mind for everyone we polled, including those in our community and the general public. However, not surprisingly, our community has a much broader concern over access and availability of healthcare, at more than double than the general public. This is chiefly due to misgivings our community feels about how well the healthcare system serves patients on a range of areas, from safety to putting patients first to bein
The review found that the largest disparity found was by age. Among people already diagnosed with COVID19, people who were 80 or older were seventy times more likely to die than those under 40.
Risk of dying among those diagnosed with COVID-19 was also higher in males than females.
Higher in those living in the more deprived areas than those living in the least deprived.
Higher in those in Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups than in White ethnic groups.
