A national service to help people who suffer chronic pain is to be based in Glasgow. The Scottish government(SNP) has announced that a dedicated team will be located at the Gartnavel Hospital site. They will provide residential courses for patients and carers on how to cope with the effects of chronic pain, and how to manage their condition. In Scotland all medical practise, procedures and medication are free to everyone, this is a boost for Scotland and Chronic pain and Fibromyalgia sufferers

Chronic pain affects about 18% of the population, or 800,000 people in Scotland. Chronic pain is often attached to other conditions, such as arthritis, cancer, back pain or MS, which means it is often left to those specialist departments rather than having a service dedicated to the pain itself.

Currently patients have to travel almost 400 miles to Bath for the level of specialised care that will be offered at the new national centre for excellence. Campaigners had been pushing for Scotland to have its own residential centre, along with better day services.

Last year, Health Secretary Alex Neil announced a consultation on the issue and pledged to improve care. The first patients will be seen by the new service in January 2015 and it is due to run at full capacity during 2016. Public Health Minister Michael Matheson said: “Chronic pain can be distressing and difficult to deal with, but we know that if the condition is managed well, it can make a huge difference. “That’s why this new national service, based at a single location, will have a truly positive impact on people’s lives. “The establishment of this new national service in Scotland is a major milestone for people who suffer from chronic pain.

Prof Blair Smith, national clinical lead for chronic pain, said: “I’m looking forward to working with colleagues to get it up and running. The care and treatment that the residential service will provide represents an important part of our ambition to improve the lives of people living with chronic pain. “This new national service also presents Scotland with an excellent opportunity to build on our experience of developing world recognised research, with the aim being to deliver continuing improvements in the treatment and management of chronic pain. “This will benefit the many thousands of people in Scotland living with pain daily.”

The Irish Government will accept a motion to be proposed by the opposition on Tuesday calling on parliament to recognize Palestine as a state, echoing similar recent symbolic decisions in other European Union countries.
While most developing countries recognize Palestine as a state, most Western European countries do not, supporting the Israeli and US position that an independent Palestinian state should emerge from negotiations with Israel.

European countries have grown frustrated with Israel, which since the collapse of the latest US-sponsored talks in April has pressed on with building settlements in territory the Palestinians want for their state.The government’s decision comes after Sweden became the biggest Western European country to recognize Palestine, and parliaments in Spain, Britain and France held votes in which they backed non-binding resolutions in favor of recognition.

It also follows the passing of a motion in Ireland’s upper house in October calling on the government to formally recognize Palestine.

Members of parliament in the lower house are due to discuss the motion proposed by the opposition Sinn Fein party later on Tuesday and on Wednesday. A government spokesman said it will not oppose the bill, meaning MPs will not be required to vote.

The motion calls on the government to “officially recognize the State of Palestine, on the basis of the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as the capital, as established in UN resolutions, as a further positive contribution to securing a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” It also recognizes that “continued Israeli settlement construction and extension activities in the West Bank, is illegal and severely threatening the establishment of a viable Palestinian state.”
