As a Consultant Physician and a qualified Barrister, David is well suited to the role of a mediator. He has a relaxed but utterly professional style, and brings together his consultation and advocacy skills to create an environment of trust and confidence conducive to mediation and settlement. His natural analytical skills developed during his medical and legal training enable him to get to grips quickly with complex issues, whilst his inherent empathy and compassion allow him to contextualise each individual situation.

David’s military background, both as an aviator and doctor, ensure that his attention to detail are exacting, especially regarding preparation. His familiarity with conflict, ensure a calm approach in potentially hostile environments. Willing to challenge parties, when there is a clear need to test their wider needs or expectations, whilst remaining sensitive, and adaptable throughout the dynamic process.

Although relatively new to mediation, David won The UK Mediation Skills Competition in 2016 hosted by the Worshipful Company of Arbitrators and held at Linklaters, London. He also won the individual prize for best mediation advocate, which qualified him to represent the UK at the worldwide ICC International Commercial Mediation competition in Paris.

David is comfortable mediating in most areas, but is clearly experienced in those relating to medical or professional negligence.

Dr Carey has become someone I really trust with my Class 1, and therefore my livelihood. My annual visit is always slick and hassle free and I would highly recommend him to anyone requiring a professional medical.”

Dave Goodman, Pilot British Airways

David is an excellent and very knowledgeable consultant who made me feel at ease during my Aviation Class 1 medical revalidation. He provided a very thorough examination, yet still maintaining a practical viewpoint on health conditions which could affect commercial flying activities. I would highly recommend David for any medical examination; the level of experience and knowledge he has is exceptional.”

Sian Richards, First Officer West Atlantic, UK

“This was my first medical renewal, with little indication of what to expect, I visited David who was extremely thorough with his examination and explanations which soon helped me to relax. David has advised and helped me through the renewal of my Austrian licence which has all been new for me. David’s professionalism and broad expertise from his many notable accomplishments leaves me with no hesitation in recommending and using him throughout my future flying career!"
