Virtual consultations:

Working in dermatology since 2001 I have a wealth of experience diagnosing and treating both common and rare skin rashes. I am a member of the local and regional Skin Cancer multidisciplinary meeting and am very experienced in diagnosing and treating skin cancer and sun damage. I am able to offer a Mole Mapping service for those patients at higher risk of skin cancer or with multiple moles.

I have advanced training in Paediatric Dermatology and have run the regional service for this specialty over the last 10 years with extra research expertise in the field of eczema.

I perform skin surgery on a regular basis including excision of malignant lesions, wide local excision, biopsies, shave excision, curettage and cautery and cryotherapy. I perform injection treatments for excess axillary (armpit) sweating.

I am the lead consultant for paediatric dermatology in the Regional Children's Hospital for Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

In addition to my clinical work I am a member of the NHIR general paediatrics clinic studies group. I am also privileged to be on the Steering committee for research run by the patient support group Eczema Outreach Support.

I am passionate about being a dermatologist and being able to see the transformation as my patients' skin improves or diagnosing and treating skin cancer.

When I am not at work I enjoy my family time with my husband and four children walking our dog in the countryside or visiting friends.
