Dr Caroline Champagne
Consultant Dermatologist and Hair Specialist
MBChB, MSc Clinical Dermatology, MRCP Dermatology
I have had extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of skin rashes, acne, eczema and psoriasis. I also manage skin cancers, moles and benign skin lesions. I am one of the few Consultant Dermatologists with specialist expertise in hair and scalp disorders. I am aware of how difficult it can be to cope with and talk about skin and hair problems. I therefore always ensure plenty of time to discuss concerns and achieve a manageable treatment plan.
I studied Medicine and an intercalated BSc in Pharmacology at Bristol University. I also undertook an MSc in Clinical Dermatology at The St Johns Institute of Dermatology in London and achieved a Distinction. I completed my Dermatology training in Oxford and also did a fellowship in hair and scalp disorders in Brighton. I became a Consultant in 2015 and work at Watford General Hospital, West Herts NHS Trust as both a general Dermatologist and hair specialist. I helped set up and am the lead Consultant for the Teledermatology service in West Herts NHS Trust. I also run the hair and scalp disorders service at The Churchill Hospital in Oxford where I have been involved in a number of research projects related to alopecia.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Caroline Champagne at Spire include:
