Professional profile

Availability - Murrayfield: Monday afternoon and evening, Wednesday afternoon

My clinical practice covers many aspects of adult dermatology including moles, skin cancer, acne, psoriasis and eczema. I trained in Medicine and Dermatology in Manchester and Glasgow Universities. Over the past 20 years I has been involved in many aspects of research into causes of inflammatory skin disease and the development of new treatments for skin diseases. I have worked as a consultant dermatologist within the NHS since 1999, currently based at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. I am member of the examination board that sets the qualification examination for all consultant dermatologists, and sit on the editorial board of the British Journal of Dermatology
