Background Information 
Professional profile:

I trained in Bristol first in paediatrics then in dermatology and am the first UK doctor to be fully dually accredited both as a consultant paediatrician and a consultant dermatologist.  My NHS practice is between Bristol and Great Ormond St Hospital in London.

My practice covers the whole range of adult and paediatric skin problems but I have a particular interest in eczema, psoriasis, skin infections and birth marks including treatment of strawberry birth marks (haemangioma) as well as genetic skin conditions and inflammatory skin rashes.



Personal profile:

I live in Gloucestershire with my husband, who is a dentist, our 5 children, and my parents, who moved down from Leeds when they retired a few years ago. I am a keen dog walker, veg grower and baker.
