Martin E Johnson
Medical Director – Future Meds UK and Medical Director at St Pancras Clinical Research


For many years, after devoting much of my time to Primary Care Research (as a GP for 30 years), I developed a specific interest in the management of chronic pain.

I have written several articles regarding pain management, particularly focusing on neuropathic pain, the use of opioids and the organisation of pain services in the community.

In May 2018 I stepped down after 5 years on the British Pain Society Executive Group, initially as Secretary to the Council and then as Vice President (Membership). I remain on British Pain Society Council as a representative member for the RCGP. I am the former co-chair of the Chronic Pain Policy Coalition.

I am also RCGP Representative for chronic pain (former Clinical Champion) and RCGP representative for the new Pain Parliamentary Campaign Group . Through these roles role I am trying to raise awareness of chronic pain and develop initiatives that will both enhance it’s management and also make it safer, especially with regard to opioid treatment.

I have been involved in Clinical Research for over 30 years and 250+ projects. I still take an active role in research being PI on 15 projects. My day role is as Medical Director/EMEA Medical Director in 3 clinical research companies, including Science 37, where I specifically have an interest in pain management, Alzheimer’s research, asthma and new models of research.
