Supporting Wounded Veterans’ Pain Management Programme run at, and in conjunction with, King Edward’s VII’s hospital, has now completed its first year of residential programmes. It is going from strength to strength, with on average 130 applications for every 10 places. We have also opened a Pain Clinic, where Veterans can come not only for advice on how to manage their pain, but also have a medication review.
Initial research into the efficacy of these programmes is looking very positive. With the help of funding from LIBOR, Syncona Ltd and the Howard de Walden Estate (for which SWV are hugely grateful), more residential programmes, and new clinics, are ongoing into 2018. We are also funding research into Pain Management and are looking at International collaborations.
