Services and Support Groups
If you have been struggling with pain for more than 12 weeks, there are many services that can help. Long-term pain has many causes, such as arthritis, back problems, an old injury, illness or nerve damage, visit our page to find out about common pain conditions.
There’s lots of self-help advice available from a variety of organisations supporting people living with long-term pain. Some of these organisations run helplines and self-help groups, where you can talk to and meet other people with long-term pain. Pain clinics offer a wide range of treatments and support. They aim to support you in developing self-help skills to control and relieve your pain.

Join us at our event:
Help us shape the future work around management of persistent pain, in Derby and Derbyshire
Thursday 29th February 9.30am-12,30pm, online
Across Derby and Derbyshire, we want to help people manage living with persistent non-cancer pain and reduce the harm from opioids.
We are hosting an event and encourage anyone supporting people who live with persistent pain as well as those who live with persistent pain to participate.
This event will allow us to share and celebrate the successes we have had over the past year and learn from those around us. We will also use this opportunity listen to you and hear about what you feel we could be working on for the next year to make services better for patients and carers.
This is your opportunity to share what is important to you and your loved ones and shape the future of this work.
