Dr Chris Harland
MA MB FRCP
I have over 30 years of experience of adult and paediatric dermatology at leading NHS Trusts, including the Royal Marsden. I have specialist training in skin cancer diagnosis and management, cutaneous laser therapy for medical indications and cancer-related skin problems.
I am an expert in the use of dermoscopy for sub-surface visualisation of suspicious lesions, while offering surgical removal of moles and skin cancers.
I am the past-president (2016-17) of the prestigious St John's Dermatology Society, and am Lead Clinician in dermatology and skin cancer at Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust. My other NHS post is at The Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton, where I face challenging cases of cancer-related skin problems as well as skin cancers. A proportion of my referrals relate to skin cancers and moles.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Chris Harland at Spire include:
President of Dermatology Section of Royal Society of Medicine (2020-21)
President of St John's Dermatological Society (2016-17)
Lead Clinician in Dermatology and Skin Cancer at Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust (1994-2020)
Interests include skin cancer diagnosis and treatment, mole scanning (digital dermoscopy and SIAscopy) and non-invasive imaging (research); cutaneous laser therapy (Skin Sutton Hospital, but patients can be referred to St Anthony's for assessment), with special interest in vascular lesions (including port wine stains in children and adults, and other birthmarks such as epidermal naevi; lymphangiomata-largest series of carbon dioxide laser cases in UK).
