About me

I was appointed as a Consultant in Pain Medicine and Anaesthesia at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge in February 2004, following a Fellowship in Pain Medicine based at St Bartholomew's in London.

I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and a Fellow of the Faculty of Pain Medicine.

I was Lead Clinician for the Pain Service at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge for many years but, since 2017, was appointed as Clinical Director of Musculoskeletal Services at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with responsibility for the management of Trauma & Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Pain Services in Cambridge. I maintain a significant clinical role, based predominately at the NHS Pain Service at CUH, but also run a clinic along with consultant colleagues in pain and palliative medicine at the local Hospice for patients with intractable cancer pain.

I manage all chronic pain conditions in my normal clinical practice but have a particular interest in the management of spinal pain conditions, including neck and back pain, as well as muscular and nerve pain conditions associated with spinal pathology. I run the neuromodulation service at Cambridge along with colleagues in Pain Medicine and Neurosurgery, and regularly insert spinal cord stimulator devices for patients with severe nerve pain conditions.

I enjoy sports and try to keep myself fit by running to and from work at Addenbrooke's Hospital whenever I can. I am a good skier, a dreadful golfer and, more recently, have developed an interest in rock climbing, much to the horror of my family. Although largely self-taught, I play the piano at quite a high level.
