Background Information 
Professional profile:

After completing my general professional training in the West Midlands, I returned to the University Hospital in Nottingham to undertake my specialist training in dermatology. My research experience provided training in the treatment of allergic and inflammatory skin disorders, and I also developed further expertise in laser therapy and management of skin cancer. My training was consolidated by an overseas fellowship studying Mohs' Micrographic surgery, a highly specialised technique used in treating difficult skin tumours.

I have been able to provide a comprehensive dermatology service after being appointed a consultant at the Heartlands and Solihull Hospitals. In addition to a specialised skin cancer and laser surgery service, my practice at Spire Parkway and Solihull Hospitals involves the treatment of a broad spectrum of skin disorders. There is a dedicated patch test service for suspected allergic disorders and phototherapy is available for treatment of severe psoriasis. I was also part of the team at Solihull Hospital which gained national recognition for providing a high quality service.

Personal profile:

I have always taken a keen interest in sport, and have represented teams at cricket, tennis, basketball and squash. Currently I am a member of a local sports and squash club. More recently I have learnt to play golf, although regrettably the pressure of time means that this is restricted to a few rounds in the summer months.

The highlight of my interest in outdoor pursuits and hill walking was in completing the 'Tour du Mont Blanc' circuit in the Alps. I am a proficient skier, but also enjoy the more sedentary pleasures of the theatre, concerts and cinema as well as fine food.
