Keele University

Pioneering early intervention and primary care in the management of chronic pain


Over the past decade, the University’s Primary Care Research Centre has worked closely with general practices, the public and user groups to become an international leader in the field of chronic pain primary care. It has pioneered new treatment techniques for chronic pain and osteoarthritis and helped develop national policy guidelines and practices for the treatment of back pain. In 2008, the Arthritis Research Campaign named Keele as its National Primary Care Centre.
