Dr Veronique Bataille
MD, PhD, FRCP
I see all dermatology conditions including skin diseases in children. I also perform minor surgery for the removal of skin lesions. My expertise is in melanoma and moles (atypical naevi and the atypical mole syndrome), as well as familial melanoma but I also see all types of skin cancers.
I completed my dermatology training in London and worked in several teaching hospitals as a registrar and senior registrar in dermatology. In 1995, I finished my fellowship for Cancer UK on the genetics of melanoma and have since carried a lot of research on skin cancers. In 1996 I became a consultant dermatologist at Barts and the London NHS Trust where I pursued my clinical and research interest in melanoma. In 2004, I joined the West Herts Trust as a consultant dermatologist based at St Albans and Hemel Hempstead Hospitals where I practice general dermatology and also run specialised melanoma clinics.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Veronique Bataille at Spire include:
Spire Harpenden Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
