At Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.
Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre undertakes some interventional pain management processes as an option within the Somerset community based Pain Management Service, for patients who live in Somerset.
For patients who live outside Somerset e.g. Wiltshire or BANES, referrals can be sent to the hospital from Pain Management Consultants, Nurses or Physios as part of a pain management treatment pathway.
The procedures undertaken are as follows:
These procedures help to relieve neck, arm, back or leg pain caused by the inflammation of nerves.
Because we only deal with scheduled care, and no emergency cases, we are not affected by the NHS announcement to cancel all non-urgent surgery; if you are booked in for an appointment or surgery with us it will still go ahead.
