Some of the principal treatments carried out by Prof Shernaz Walton at Spire include:
I obtained qualifications in Medicine and Dermatology and graduated from the Yorkshire Training Programme with specialist accreditation in Dermatology in 1987. I was appointed Consultant in Dermatology at Scunthorpe and Goole in 1995. In 1997 I moved to Hull to develop dermatology services in the hospital and the community. I maintained my links with the South Bank and continued with an NHS clinic at Barton. In addition to my commitments at Hull Royal Infirmary I also hold NHS clinics at Morrill Street Health Centre, Chanterlands Avenue and Central Surgery Barton, North Lincolnshire; this clinic accepts referrals from Grimsby, Brigg, Scunthorpe and Cleethorpes.
During the course of my research I have been the recipient of several awards at national and international level, the most prestigious one being the 18th World Congress Dermatology Award, which was awarded for CV/Scientific presentation in New York June 1992. I have also contributed to dermatological literature with over 65 publications in peer reviewed journals with some of these being quoted in the dermatology text books, as world literature references.
Besides my clinical role I have restructured the dermatology service in Hull with emphasis on the development of community clinics, specialist clinics, leg ulcer and lump/bump clinics with a consequential reduction in waiting times. I have a very committed interest in teaching, not only dermatology trainees but also General Practitioners, nurses and the general public.
I am clinical governance lead for dermatology, the role ensures safe and good clinical practice within the NHS Trust.
I came to the UK in 1976 having fully trained and worked as a dermatologist in India. Having obtained higher qualifications in dermatology in India I was awarded the FRCP (London) in May 1999. Most of my research has included basic genetic, biological and therapeutic advances. I have been involved in preparing modules, directing courses and latterly as an examiner in higher specialist dermatology examinations. I have maintained both professional and teaching links with my Medical School in Bombay; providing financial support needed to develop the dermatology department.
