Professional profile

I am a consultant in pain medicine and hold my NHS post at Nottingham University Hospitals. My clinical work is exclusively for people with spinal and other persistent pain problems. This includes people with new episodes of back pain, sciatica or neck pain, as well as longer-term pain.

I can help people optimise their pain-related medications, often with a reduction in overall medication use. I am pleased to offer advice to people with complex medication issues, particularly in relation to strong opioids.

With many pain problems, particularly when these are longstanding or have brought about a reduction in quality of life, a holistic (biopsychosocial) management approach is the best way forward.

I work closely with a multidisciplinary clinical network of colleagues from physiotherapy, osteopathy, specialist nursing, pharmacy, psychology, cognitive behavioural therapy and spinal surgery.
