He is a member of the medical advisory board of Trigeminal Neuralgia and Facial Pain UK. He was a highly regarded historian of medicine before studying clinical medicine at Cambridge. Junior medical jobs followed in Cambridge, London and Oxford, before he completed his specialist training in neurology in the North-West of England. He spent twelve months as a clinical research fellow with Professor Peter Goadsby and Dr Holger Kaube of the Headache Group at the Institute of Neurology in London. He is a Fellow of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of London and Edinburgh.

His main interests are the diagnosis and management of chronic headache disorders, facial pain, visual snow and secondary headaches associated with systemic disorders. He has made presentations on these subjects at recent meetings of the International Headache Society, the European Headache Federation and Migraine Trust, and the Association of British Neurologists. He runs a specialist NHS headache clinic at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. He actively promotes the importance of headache disorders through social media such as X, formerly known as Twitter (please click on the logo above to see his recent tweets), and more traditional media platforms.

He also has a busy general neurology NHS practice in Buckinghamshire, covering the whole field of neurology, including epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and numerous other neurological disorders.

He sees private patients with headache disorders, and all other general neurological conditions, at The Medical Chambers Kensington in South Kensington, the Chiltern Hospital in Great Missenden, and the Shelburne Hospital in High Wycombe. He is also consultant neurologist to Sapphire Medical Clinics, a CQC-registered private clinic assessing patients for the use of medicinal cannabis, and providing prescriptions to appropriate patients.
