I am a friendly, enthusiastic consultant, passionate about the speciality of dermatology, and committed to offering the best possible service to patients and GPs. I feel comfortable helping patients with complex skin disorders, but equally consider no skin problem to be too small.

I trained at Edinburgh and Oxford universities and decided to pursue a career in dermatology early in clinical training. After qualifying I deliberately sampled a wide range of medical specialties, from general practice to intensive care medicine, to ensure a broad perspective before specialising.

Specialist dermatology training was undertaken in several departments in the West Midlands and London, yielding two completed research projects, numerous peer-reviewed publications, presentations to specialist societies, and regional and national prizes.

Work-related interests include all aspects of general dermatology, in particular inflammatory dermatoses (rashes), as well as special interests in male genital skin disease and psychocutaneous medicine.

Medical education has always been a great passion. I spent three years as a Junior Research Fellow at New College, Oxford University, with a remit to provide teaching for all clinical medical students in the college. Since I have completed a Master’s degree in medical education at Warwick University, and I am actively engaged with teaching and training at all levels.
