Pain Association Scotland Virtual Support Group

In association with Dumfries & Galloway Health & Social Care Partnership, we are piloting a new service for people who are unable to attend the monthly self-management groups in Dumfries and Stranraer.

What is a virtual support group?

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

Who is the virtual support group for?

The virtual support group is for people living with chronic pain who cannot attend the groups in Stranraer and Dumfries, maybe because getting to the groups is difficult, the day or time of the group sessions are not convenient or they are not comfortable participating in groups.

When do the virtual support groups take place?

There will be two one hour virtual support groups each month: one group will be available during the afternoon between 1.30 p.m. and 2.30 p.m. and the other group will be run during the evening between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.

For dates and times, see the timetables at the bottom of this notice

How do I find out more about participating in the virtual support group?
