I was appointed to Warwick Hospital in December 2009 after finishing higher training in Anaesthetics and a Fellowship in Pain Management in the West Midlands. I then trained in Pain Management as a Clinical Research Fellow in Birmingham Heartlands, Solihull, Good Hope and Russell Hall Hospitals, Marie Curie and St Giles Hospices.
I provide interventional procedures for chronic pain conditions which includes headache, back pain, thoracic pain, abdominal-pelvic pain, musculoskeletal pain. I can also treat neck pain, nerve entrapment pain, neuropathic pain and persistent pain after surgery.
I have a specialist interest in abdominal and pelvic pain.
I conceived and organised the Faculty of Pain Medicine Study day: ‘Musculoskeletal System Examination for diagnosing Pain Problems’ in the Royal College premises in London for the third time this year. I have taken the Educational Supervisor’s role for the Pain Fellow and look after the training and educational needs along with being a mentor. I am also the Pain Module in charge for trainees and MTI students sitting the FRCA.

I have varied interests, from art to nature. I am a long-time member of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, and love going on nature walks. I am also a member of the Royal Horticultural Society and have a passion for plants. In my youth I was a prize winning painter and I still continue to paint in my free time. I enjoy reading, cooking, gardening, music and playing squash at the gym, as well as spending time with my family.
