He is the lead and chair of skin cancer at Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals NHS Trust (Barnet General Hospital), where he has been a consultant dermatologist since 1998. During this time he has helped build the Trust into the largest skin cancer treatment centre in London (source: BCF). Its multi-disciplinary team (MDT) is London’s largest and the eighth largest in the country. Practising in both the NHS and private sector, Dr Stevens’ ethos is excellence in clinical care combined with a friendly and empathic patient approach.

He was involved in the identification of the first gene in the aetiology of genetic deafness. Following this he developed an interest in skin cancer and advanced cutaneous surgery, training in Mohs surgery. Dr Stevens is a member of the American Society of Mohs Surgery.
