Background: Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a common genetic blood disorder affecting primarily the Black African/Caribbean and ethnic minority population. In Britain, there has been a sharp rise in individuals being diagnosed with sickle cell as well as a rapid increase in the number of sickle cell patients being admitted into hospital regularly. Pain management is effective in reducing hospital admission and delays in being discharged.
