Integrated Pain Management HIT

The Integrated Pain Management Health Integration Team (IPM HIT) is a team of clinicians, researchers, commissioners and patients, working together to provide a fully integrated, multidisciplinary, lifespan clinical service for chronic pain.

In 2009 the Chief Medical Officer for England reported that "each year over 5 million people in the United Kingdom develop chronic pain, but only two‐thirds will recover. Much more needs to be done to improve outcomes for patients."
