About me

I have been a member of the Pain Team in Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust since 2001. My particular interest is in the use of radio frequency interventions for chronic spinal pain.

I also join regular multidisciplinary asessment clinics with colleagues drawn from Nursing, Psychology and Physiotherapy.

In the Royal Preston NHS clinic we run regular Pain Management Programmes to help those for whom there is no satisfactory "treatment" in the conventional sense.

My caseload is very varied: from mechanical back ache to cancer pain; pain in young adults and the elderly; phantom limb and complex regional pain.
