Dr Nick Fraser
Consultant in Pain Medicine
MBBS (London), FRCA, FCARCSI, FFPMRCA
I am a Consultant Anaesthetist who specialises in pain medicine. This is a sub-specialty that is affiliated to the Royal College of Anaesthetists, but is under its own faculty. I have been a consultant since 2007 and my NHS practice is at Stepping Hill Hospital where I am Clinical Lead for the Chronic Pain Service.
My areas of interest mainly focus around non-surgical techniques to reduce spinal and, more recently, shoulder pain. These techniques involve X-ray or ultrasound-guided interventions for short term 'acute' problems such as sciatica or more radiofrequency denervations of small nerves to reduce transmission of pain for certain longer term 'chronic' conditions.
Spire Manchester Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
