You have the right to choose where you have your NHS treatment.

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:

  • Steroid epidural injections
  • Nerve root injections
  • Lumbar sympathectomy
  • Stellate ganglion blocks
  • Peripheral nerve injections

These procedures help to relieve neck, arm, back or leg pain caused by the inflammation of nerves.
