Kent NHS Community Chronic Pain Service

Adding digital to the delivery of their Pain Management Programmes

"Having Pathway through Pain to access enabled us to move to a fully digital pathway"

Colin Bullen, Advanced Chronic Pain Practitioner, Kent Community Health NHS FT

Facing the same challenge as many clinics in the UK: How to continue supporting patients with chronic pain within the Covid-19 restrictions, the Pain Service moved quickly to an almost fully digital service. As a direct result of the pandemic, the clinic increased its use of Pathway through Pain; the digital PMP enabling them to continue providing support to their chronic pain patients, as well as reach a cohort of patients they previously couldn't access.

Prioritising quality, choice and confidentiality for a successful staff mental health and wellbeing initiative

"Very easy to measure the impact and report results into our corporate health and safety group"

Jon Formby, HR Business Partner, Guildford Borough Council

With the local government heading into phases of restructuring, the Council sought evidence-based wellbeing solutions, with a particular focus on tools that helped reduce and manage stress and increase resilience, so employees were better equipped to cope during the changes. Having satisfied the Council's high IG & IS standards, the Be Mindful digital MBCT course was included in the options offered to staff, providing a highly flexible alternative to group sessions, particularly useful during the covid-19 working restrictions.
