The support group is run for patients with chronic pain and is run solely by patients with chronic pain. Our main objectives are to bring people together who are suffering from this debilitating condition within a 'safe' environment, to be able to share concerns and ideas, build friendships and obtain up-to-date information about handling their pain.
CPSG is a warm, welcoming friendly group who give support; being supported is what we are all about. Seeing the person is our main focus, not their condition. The atmosphere created is a warm hearted sociable blend to encourage positive feelings and for you to know you are not alone. All age ranges (18+) and genders, carers, partners and guest visitors are welcome.
