Professional profile

I qualified from The London Hospital Medical College in 1990 with a medical degree from the University of London, MBBS. After working for a while in and around London, I moved back to Manchester and trained as an Anaesthetist, gaining my fellowship from the Royal College of Anaesthesia, FRCA in 1996, subspecialising in Pain Medicine and extending my training by a year as a Macmillan Pain Medicine Fellow at the Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Liverpool. I was awarded FFPMRCA, the Fellowship of the Faculty of Pain Medicine in 2002. I was appointed as an NHS Consultant in Anaesthesia & Pain Medicine at The University Hospitals of South Manchester (UHSM) NHS Trust in 2001. Between 2004 and 2014 I was the clinical lead for the Pain Medicine Service. Since 2012 I have focused working solely as a Pain Medicine Clinician.

I am a council member of the Royal Society of Medicine’s Telehealth Committee.

Personal Profile

As a younger man I played rugby for school, club and University to a reasonable standard. I have enjoyed long distance cycling and completed 3 etape de tours. I now focus on keeping fit through cycling, boxing and enjoying my garden and greenhouse. 

I collect modern British art and 20th century pottery. I love baking bread!

I spend much of my weekend as a family taxi man and kids football coach.
