PANDA-S is part of a £2.7 million programme of research which is seeking to personalise care for people with shoulder pain, ensuring that people recieve the care that is best for them and avoid uneccessary investigations and treatments. 

Shoulder pain, affects one in five adults in the UK, and the conditions can be very painful - affecting sleep, work and day-to-day life. 

This study, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), will gain invaluable insights from patients suffering with shoulder pain. These results will help support General Practitoners (GPs) and Physiotherapists in their decisions about the best and most timely treatments for these patients. 

If you have been invited to take part in the study, this website will provide you with all the information you need to gain a better understanding of how to take part, and what its all about.
