This qualitative study describes GPs’ experiences of and needs for management of people from a South Asian community who have chronic pain. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 18 GPs from practices in two PCTs in Leicester. The data was analysed using grounded theory. The results indicate that managing patients from a South Asian community with chronic pain can be challenging due to differing pain expression and presentation. Emerging themes refer to shortages of services for these patients including the need for CBT, counselling, community support and GP education and training. Potential implications of the results for service provision are discussed.
