Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Paul Hart at Spire include:
I am a consultant anaesthetist with over 15 years experience as a specialist in pain management. I work at West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust and at both Spire Harpenden and Spire Bushey Hospitals. I am Clinical Lead for Pain Management at West Herts. Between 2006 and 2010 I was the Clinical Director of the Department of Anaesthetics, Intensive Care and Pain Management. Prior to this appointment I was the Trust Lead for Clinical Effectiveness (2002 - 2006).
I gained my medical qualifications from the University of Leicester Medical School in 1986. The following year I began my anaesthetic training in London. I was awarded the FRCA in 1996 and 3 years later, in 1999, started work in my current post.
During the 10 year training period I undertook research and gained additional clinical experience working for 2 years at UCSF in San Francisco, California (1992-94) as a Visiting Assistant Professor. In 1995 I spent a year “in industry” with the pharmaceutical company SmithKline Beecham (now GSK) working as a researcher on drug development project teams.
Throughout my 15 years as a consultant I have continued to develop and learn - consolidating my knowledge and diversifying my experience. My main professional / clinical interest is in the management of chronic pain. At the inception of the Faculty of Pain Medicine I was awarded the post-nominals FFPMRCA. My clinical work also incorporates Intensive Care Medicine and in 2011 I was awarded the Fellowship of the Faculty of Intensive care Medicine (FFICM).
I am actively involved in training anaesthetists and pain specialists - I am a member of the London Pain Training Group. I work within the School of Anaesthesia at the London Deanery and as an Educational Supervisor at West Herts Department of Anaesthesia.
I have pursued clinical interests beyond Anaesthesia, Pain Management and Intensive care. My role as Trust Lead for Clinical Effectiveness. involved the facilitation, implementation and monitoring NICE guidance / standards in West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust. I helped develop a thrombosis risk assessment tool whilst I was Chair of the Thrombosis and Anticoagulation Group in West Herts. I am developing an interest in medico-legal work and skills as an expert witness.
At the 2012 Olympic Games I was a member of the emergency medical team attending the athletes competing in the Olympic Stadium. I aim to continually develop and improve both the clinical outcomes and experience of my patients along with my professional knowledge and skills. I am a clinical specialist inspector for the Care Quality Commission (CQC). I undertake an annual appraisal, by my peers, that includes reviews of both audits and surveys of patient (clinical) outcomes and patient experience.
