Dumfries & Galloway Health & Social Care

Virtual Support Group launched for people living with chronic pain

Pain Association Scotland in Association with DGHSCP is piloting a Virtual Support Group for people in Dumfries and Galloway living with chronic pain.

The virtual support group uses technology similar to Skype, Google Hangout or Facetime, to link people with a Pain Association Trainer to participate in an online group exploring pain self-management.

The virtual support group is for people living with chronic pain who are unable to attend the monthly self-management groups in Dumfries and Stranraer, with afternoon and evening sessions taking place each month.
