Pankaj Madan appointed to Royal Society of Medicine Pain Medicine Section Council

January 25, 2019

Pankaj Madan from Exchange Chambers has been appointed to the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) Council for the Section of Pain Medicine. It is believed that this is the first time the RSM Pain Section Council, which comprises medical practitioners and consultants, has included a lawyer.

The Royal Society of Medicine is one of the country’s major providers of postgraduate medical education. Independent and apolitical, the Society provides a neutral platform for informed debate about important, often controversial, healthcare topics.

The RSM’s 56 Sections span all medical specialties and increasingly seek to cover other healthcare disciplines. The Sections, supported by their Section councils, plan the majority of the educational events run and accredited for continuing professional development by the RSM, often in association with other professional organisations.

Commenting on his appointment, Pankaj said:

“It is an honour to join the RSM Pain Medicine Section Council.

“The RSM provides high-quality continuing postgraduate education and learning to the medical profession. Its mission is to advance health, through education and innovation.  I am looking forward to playing an active role as a Council member.”

Pankaj continues in full time practice at the Bar. He specialises in Catastrophic and Life-Changing Injury with specialist expertise in Brain Injury, severe limb injury, high-value Pain and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) claims. He attracts a loyal and ever-increasing following from both Defendant insurers and Claimants.

He is from a medical family and has an excellent understanding of medical issues. He is renowned for his meticulous eye for detail and sensitive, sympathetic client approach, The Legal 500 in 2018 said that he has a “Brilliant client manner” and recommended him for his “Superb strategic approach to brain injury cases”. In 2017, he was noted as “Very experienced in high-value Catastrophic Injury claims” and his “ability to challenge the unusual in cases”. In fact, he has been commended every year by the Legal 500 since 2008.
