The consultant is Dr Dominic Aldington. Having served in the Royal Army Medical Corps he was the Subject Matter Expert in Pain to the Surgeon General and was responsible for organising pain relief from the point of injury until a casualty left the service. This saw him working at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court and the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine in Birmingham, as well as undertaking a number of deployments during his career. He will offer advice and guidance on your pain related issues, including a medication review and will liaise with your NHS GP helping you to optimise your pain management.
