Originally from the North east, I trained at Manchester Medical School (q1988) and continued with Anaesthetic training in the North West.
I have been a Consultant at Blackpool now since 1997, living in the area with my Family.
I specialise in Pain Management and Anaesthetics. I have a particular interest in back and neck pain, nerve pain (neuropathic), and pain persisting after surgery (post surgical pain). However chronic pain doesn't often fit neatly into categories and I see a wide range of other pain problems.
Fellow of the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists
