I graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2001 before starting training in Anaesthetics in Glasgow. I have worked within Tayside since 2005 where I completed specialist training in Anaesthetics and advanced training in Pain Medicine. I was appointed Consultant in Anaesthetics and Pain Medicine in 2010 and Clinical Lead for the Acute Pain service at Ninewells Hospital.
I have extensive experience working as part of a multi-disciplinary team assessing and managing a wide variety of acute and chronic pain problems. I regularly teach medical students, trainee Anaesthetists and trainees from other specialties and allied professions. I have lectured to trainees on national courses for exam preparation and at scientific meetings around the UK.
