Treatment restrictions

As part of our long-standing partnership, we will be dedicating much of our resources to the NHS. As a result some of the treatments are being suspended and as a result we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations.

Professional profile

I have been a Consultant Dermatologist since 2001. Dermatology is a very rewarding specialty as I am able to care for patients of all ages from newborn to the elderly. At Spire Elland Hospital, I do not treat paediatrics. My work is both medical and surgical, so I can look after my patients through every aspect and stage of their treatment.

I offer a full range of dermatological treatments including both medical and surgical aspects. This includes consultations for all skin, hair and nail conditions. In addition to this work I also perform cosmetic dermatology consultations and treatments.

With an increasing awareness of the risk of skin cancer, many patients are requesting regular skin health checks which I am happy to perform, providing either reassurance or highlighting the need for treatment.

My main focus is on clinical work and caring for patients, however I also have an active role in teaching both nationally and internationally. I hold the position of honorary senior lecturer at The University of Sheffield.
