I work as a Consultant in Anaesthesia and Pain Management at St Helens and Knowsley teaching hospitals NHS trust. I am a Royal College Faculty Tutor for Pain and also an examiner for the European Diploma of Pain Medicine.

My area of special interest is Interventional Pain management. I treat cancer and non-cancer pain conditions like joint pains, post-surgical pain, spinal pain, nerve pain following injury and entrapments, visceral pain like abdominopelvic pain and refractory angina, complex regional pain syndrome and other chronic pain conditions using patient centred comprehensive multi-dimensional assessments and evidence based pharmacological and interventional procedures.

I did my structured clinical training in Anaesthesia and Pain management in three different regions in the UK - East Midlands, Scotland and Mersey. During my training, I completed two separate prestigious fellowships in pain management at the National Refractory Angina Centre, Liverpool and the Walton Centre.

I am one of the first pain doctors in UK to be awarded the Fellowship of the Faculty of Pain Medicine by Examination [FFPMRCA] when the exam was held in 2012. I have also completed the FIPP [Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice] examination of the World Institute of Pain. I hold fellowships by examination in Anaesthesia from the Royal of College of Anaesthetists, UK [FRCA] and College of Anaesthetists, Republic of Ireland [FCARCSI].

I am a honorary clinical lecturer at the University of Liverpool and an examiner for University of Liverpool MBChB final exams. I am an Advanced Life Support Instructor. I have served as an author on the Pain Management e-learning project of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child health. I am also a committee member in the Spine Intervention Society.
