I have been a Consultant Dermatologist since 1998, after training in cancer medicine then subsequently training in Dermatology in Sheffield. I have the higher degree (MD) for a thesis on allergy. I am a national expert in male genital skin disease. I have published 2 textbooks and have written dozens of research articles on a wide range of dermatological conditions such as contact allergy, hand dermatitis, antibiotic resistance and quality of life in elderly people with skin disease. My NHS position and private practice enables me to see the full range of dermatological problems. My youngest patient was one hour old and my oldest patient was 110! I also train and supervise dermatology trainees and have a keen interest in medical education
I treat all age groups, adults and children for the entire range if skin, hair and nail conditions, particularly skin cancer and male genital skin problems. I perform dermatological surgery and diagnostic skin biopsies as well as a full range of allergy testing. I also test for metal allergy in patients who may have possible problems with joint replacements. Skin checking (for cancer) is becoming a large part of my work with the dramatic rise in skin cancer in the UK.
