The Painful Truth campaign was launched to build awareness of the issues facing those suffering with chronic pain. The campaign aims to drive for improvement in how people with chronic pain are diagnosed and to help inform the wider health care community about innovative and cost effective treatment options for chronic pain sufferers.

This site aims to provide sufferers and their loved ones an opportunity to learn more about chronic pain and the treatment options available. The site also offers the opportunity to hear from other chronic pain sufferers as they discuss their experience with the condition and the treatment paths they have chosen.
