I came to the UK and worked in dermatology at Hull, Glasgow, London and a year in genitourinary medicine in Birmingham and obtained the MRCP. I trained and worked in respected Dermatology Units including Senior Registrar at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, and St Bartholomew's Hospital, and a locum consultant at Royal Free Hospital, London. I trained in Mohs surgery and photobiology at St John's Dermatology Centre before being appointed to a full time consultant at Dudley Group of Hospitals NHS Trust where I started the Dermatology Unit.

I have given lectures to GPs, Pharmacists, Nurses, medical students and enjoyed the interactions. I have sat on exam panels for medical students and the membership.
