I was the pain specialist and co-founder of the Pancreatitis Multidisciplinary Team at the University Hospitals of Leicester and as such have a special interest in the assessment and management of abdominal and pelvic pain, particularly in relation to pain due to the pancreas. This is the first Pancreatitis MDT in England.
Hence, I specialise in nerve blocks for abdominal pain whether visceral or somatic.

I teach on courses of interventions using ultrasound and x-ray both nationally and internationally. I have presented nationally and internationally and co-authored papers in specialized medical journals.
