From early in my anaesthetic career, I became interested in the world of Pain Medicine. Since that time I have completed the Royal College pain training and have been working as an NHS and private Consultant for the Royal Free Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
I am currently the Clinical Lead for the department and manage the pain MDT (multidisciplinary team) including consultants, psychologists, physiotherapists and nurses.
My experiences of pain medicine have been comprehensive from undertaking research at the Royal Marsden, to managing acute, chronic and cancer pains across London Hospitals, and learning alternative medical treatments, specifically acupuncture with the British Medical Acupuncture Society.
