Training & background
I qualified in 1983 from University of London and received my fellowship of Royal College of Anaesthesia in 1988. I started a NHS consultant post in 1992. I was one of the first in the UK to qualify as a Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice and was a founding fellow of the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. I served on the council of the British Pain Society until 2008.

I founded the Neuromodulation Society of UK and Ireland in 2000 and served as President of the International Neuromodulation Society from 2009 to 2015. I oversaw a more than doubling of INS membership worldwide, the creation of the INS website and wasChair of the Scientific Committee of the 10th, 11th and 12th Biennial Scientific Meeting of the INS in London 2011, Berlin 2013 and Montreal 2015. I now serve as Emeritus Director at Large of the INS.

I have received grants from National Institute of Health Research and Industry to carry out pivotal research for chronic (persistent) pain using neuromodulation and targeted injection and radiofrequency.

Trust and expertise

I provide medical advice to patients, medico-legal assesments for personal injury
and negligence claims and have extensive knowledge.

Private patients
I welcome patients with all major private medical insurance and self-funding patients from the UK and abroad.

I have been seeing private patients with chronic pain since 1992. I receive patients from local GP’s and consultant colleagues. Because of my national and international reputation I see patients for neuromodulation (SCS , Radiofrequency, Reactiv8) and second opinion from around the UK and abroad.

Insured
If you have private medical insurance you should be covered. Please contact your provider prior to your procedure, scan or consultation to ensure you are covered. Your provider will usually issue you with a claim or authorisation number. Please bring this and your membership number to your appointment.

Paying for your own treatment
You do not have to be insured as I offer fixed package prices for most procedures making it easy for you to pay for your treatment, scan or consultation. You can pay by credit card or cash on the day for Procedures and Diagnostics. Consultation appointments will be invoiced by your consultant.

GP Referral
A GP referral letter is helpful but not always a necessity. You can book direct for a consultation and for any treatment that is self-funded.
