King's Health Partners (KHP) Mind & Body Programme, with funding from Impact on Urban Health and in partnership with GP practices in Lambeth, is undertaking a project to work predominantly with people from Black communities to co-develop and test a bio-psycho-social approach to caring for people living with chronic pain in primary care.

KHP Mind & Body would like to invite interested parties to submit fully costed proposals to carry out the evaluation of the project.

Project overview
This project aims to co-develop and test a bio-psycho-social approach in primary care to caring for people living with chronic pain. This approach will include screening, GP consultation and support from a mental health practitioner and the voluntary care sector.

Chronic pain is one of the most common long-term conditions in England, as well as locally in Lambeth, and research suggests that chronic pain is more prevalent among people from Black backgrounds. There are also a range of factors that contribute to inequalities of patient experience, access and health outcomes for this population. Effort will therefore go into outreach and engagement with people from Black communities to co-develop the approach, working in partnership with a Black-led design partner, and receive support from the service.

Project aims:
The aims of the project are to:
1. Co-design the bio-psycho-social approach with approx. 20-25 people living with chronic pain and clinicians;

2. Test the feasibility of the community-based intervention to people living with chronic pain, aiming to reach approx. 300 people and working with three GP practices in Stockwell;
Test the scale-up of the project to across Stockwell Primary Care Network (PCN), again aiming to reach approx. 300 people, if it proves successful in the first year;

3. Understand the effectiveness and impact of the approach on participants' experience and their health outcomes (in both year 1 and, if applicable, year 2);

4. Understand the impact of the project on the wider system.
