Dr Neil Collighan is a Consultant in Pain Management and Neuromodulation. He completed his medical training at the University of Edinburgh in 1996 before undertaking his speciality training in Anaesthesia and Pain Management at the Yorkshire School of Anaesthesia.

His belief is that all pain management strategies should be a combined medical, interventional and psychological approach in order to provide maximal pain relief for the patient's well-being.

There he worked in anaesthesia, intensive care and chronic pain management.
