The Greater Glasgow Back Pain Service (GGBPS) was launched in September 2002. The service consists of a team of Clinical Physiotherapy Specialists in low back pain who lead the management of low back pain in Greater Glasgow. The team also liaises with dedicated Clinical Psychologists.
The GGBPS also includes all physiotherapy staff within Greater Glasgow who manage low back pain. The overall aim of the GGBPS is to develop into a citywide centre of excellence for the management of patients with low back pain.
