Dr Andy King qualified from King’s College Hospital School of Medicine and Dentistry, London, in 1992.
He completed higher specialist training in Anaesthetics and Pain Management at St Thomas’ Hospital, becoming accredited in 2000. His next year was spent as a post-accreditation Clinical Fellow at the world famous INPUT Pain Management Unit at St. Thomas’. In 2002 he joined Ashford and St Peter’s NHS trust as a consultant and has worked full time in Pain Management for the last seven years.
During his time as lead clinician for the service, it developed into one of the largest and most popular services in the South East which regularly scores highly for ratings of patient satisfaction and clinical effectiveness. This has been achieved by building a strong multidisciplinary team that emphasises the use of evidence-based and proven treatments, an approach that produces optimal clinical outcomes in the independent sector too.
Andy is a Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and a Fellow of the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. He is actively involved in teaching and has lectured at a regional and national level.
