The North of England Pain Medicine Group (NEPMG), founded 8 years ago by Drs Sanjeeva Gupta and Manohar Sharma, is a supraregional Pain Medicine group established to cater specifically for the unique educational and networking needs of Pain Physicians in the locality of the North of England. The Group aims to foster closer collaboration between Pain Physicians to promote areas of good practice. It encourages and supports speakers and delegates drawn primarily from the region, contributing to an annual one day meeting of the highest quality.

This year’s meeting was held in the usual location of Huddersfield and again has proved to be a resounding success proving why this meeting has fast become a most important date in the annual pain conference calendar. Topics from this year’s programme included, ‘Legal Updates- consent and other issues’, ‘Interagency Team’s reflection on Management of patients with combined chronic pain and substance misuse problem.’ and ‘6 honest serving men Spinal cord stimulation – the Salford experience’ to name but a few.
