Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Faheem Latheef at Spire include:
I grew up in Sweden and India before moving to the UK to undertake my undergraduate medical training (MBCHB) at the University of Manchester. Having graduated from the University of Manchester I then undertook my postgraduate training at the Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust rotating through various hospital specialties and culminating in completion of my medical membership exam (MRCP). I then went on to gain a National Training Number to specialise in Dermatology in the Leeds training programme where I developed my interest in allergy and skin cancer. Whilst in Leeds, I completed my Dermatology training (CCST) and also obtained my Dermatology Specialist examination certification (MRCP Dermatology).
My main clinical interests are in the subjects of skin allergy, with the use of specialised tests such as cutaneous patch testing and skin prick testing, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers but I also have an interest in general dermatology particularly acne. In my NHS practice I regularly see patients with general dermatology and inflammatory skin conditions including running a dedicated acne clinic as well as managing patients with psoriasis, eczema, alopecia, hidradenitis, nail disorders and other rashes.
I am one of the few doctors in the country to also hold a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree with the masters thesis focusing on Competitive Healthcare Strategies in the NHS, allowing me to get a better understanding of healthcare management and use of resources. I am able to offer my services to healthcare providers looking to enhance their quality, efficiency and patient experience with new and innovative strategies.
I am currently one of the lead clinicians at the Leeds Centre for Dermatology in Chapel Allerton Hospital as well as being the Lead for two large community dermatology providers.
Lead clinician at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
Consultant dermatologist and allergy specialist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
Honorary senior lecturer, Leeds University Faculty of Medicine and Health
I am a sports enthusiast including being a keen basketball and tennis player and also an avid reader of personal development and business books.
Having spent time in a number of different countries and interacted with people from all walks of life, I feel I am able to draw on these experiences in my consultations and easily able to establish rapport with my patients allowing me to effectively explore their ideas, concerns and expectations.Back to top
