Chronic Pain Ireland launches new Information Leaflet

Our mission is to provide relevant information and support to all living with chronic pain and their families.  During the pandemic calls to Chronic Pain Ireland's support line grew by 300%.  This was largely attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns, impacting on patients as procedures and treatments fell to 26% of pre-COVID levels, meaning many people suffering from chronic pain did not have access to the services they required. Many found it increasingly difficult to manage and cope with their pain.
