Professional profile

I am an expert in skin disease, skin cancer, skin surgery, cosmetic and laser dermatology and am the only fellowship trained Mohs micrographic surgeon in Lancashire.

I graduated from the University of Dundee School of Medicine in 2004 and completed post graduate training in both general medicine (MRCP) and general practice (MRCGP) in the North West deanery. I specialised in dermatology at the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust where I developed my interest in skin cancer, dermatological surgery and laser dermatology.

I then went on to complete a 12 month fellowship in Mohs micrographic surgery and laser dermatology at the Nottingham NHS Treatment Centre where I personally performed over 1000 surgical procedures. I consolidated my fellowship with further training at Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Dermatology, Mohs and Dermatologic Surgery and The Skin Cancer Centre in Cincinnati.

Mohs micrographic surgery is a dermatologist provided scar-minimising surgical technique for skin cancer which has the highest cure rate of any treatment. Mohs surgery is a highly specialised and precise treatment for skin cancer using a microscope at the time of surgery to ensure all the roots of a skin cancer are entirely removed.

A strong believer in evidence based medicine, I regularly attend top research meetings in surgical and laser dermatology and have published numerous peer reviewed articles and textbook chapters and have given presentations at national and international scientific meetings.
