Our Story

Pathway through Pain is part of the Wellmind Health family of digital courses and was developed in 2011 with the oversight and approval of John O'Dowd, a consultant spinal surgeon and Dr Charles Pither, a pioneer at St Thomas's Hospital of the intensive Pain Management Programme (PMP). Since launch, Pathway through Pain has been the subject of patient trials and published clinical research. In 2019 it passed the DAQ2 health app assessment which sets rigorous NHS quality standards for clinical effectiveness, safety, security, usability and accessibility.
