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.
Along with all Independent Sector healthcare providers, we will be supporting NHS England by providing essential support to NHS Hospitals during the Coronavirus crisis. As a result, unfortunately, we have to cancel the elective services we offer to our patients. If you have an appointment, somebody will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss. Please bear with us whilst our phone lines are extremely busy and we work through speaking to each individual patient.
For any queries, please view our current status and advice on our COVID-19 (Coronavirus) information page.
