Acute Pain

LHCH has a dedicated Acute Pain Service that is designed to monitor and treat post-operative pain. 

The Acute pain team strives provide effective and safe pain relief to ensure our patients have a good experience of care during their admission.

The Anaesthetic team and Acute Pain Team offer a variety of specialised pain relief techniques to manage post-operative pain, such as;

  • Patient controlled analgesia (PCA)
  • Thoracic epidurals infusion
  • Thoracic paravertebral infusion 

All patients are assessed pre-operatively by the Anaesthetist providing the care during their surgery and appropriate pain relief methods will be discuss during this assessment.

The Acute Pain Team will then follow up patients as needed during the post-operative period.
