Professional Profile

Dr Richard Griffiths qualified from UCL in 1997, after delaying his training with a detour into the history of medicine. He then undertook anaesthetic and pain training in the South East, which culminated in a Consultant post in 2007. Interestingly, he saved his last training assignment until last, by undergoing emergency spinal surgery the very week he was meant to start as a Consultant. Since then, his career in anaesthesia and pain medicine has been enhanced with 8 years as the Training Director and Regional Advisor of South East Pain Training at the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
