Details

PHN is persistent pain extending beyond the period of rash in some people who have had shingles. PHN can often be managed in primary care, but more severe cases are referred to specialists in pain clinics.

Public Health England is in partnership with pain clinics across England to collect information on attendance at pain clinics for PHN. The information collected will check the impact and effectiveness of the shingles vaccination programme.
