I am an experienced Consultant Dermatologist practising general dermatology, skin oncology and skin surgery. I pride myself in delivering high-quality patient-centred care and achieving high patient satisfaction levels. My key interests include the following areas: hair and scalp disorders, photodermatoses (light-induced skin problems) and phototherapy, skin cancer, photodynamic therapy, inflammatory skin disease including acne, eczema, psoriasis, allergy and use of botulinum toxin for axillary hyperhidrosis/aesthetics.
Having completed my undergraduate training with honours at the University of Nottingham, I returned to the West Midlands to complete my general medical training at University Hospitals Birmingham where I successfully obtained membership in the Royal College of Physicians, London, in 2003.
I have exclusively trained in Dermatology since 2003 and have regularly presented papers at local, regional and international meetings and have won several regional and national prizes for my efforts.
I am qualified as a teacher in medical education at the University of Wolverhampton and regularly deliver lectures for medical students, allied medical professionals, trainees and GPs. I have been an invited lecturer for local regional and national events and training courses including the St Johns Photodermatology Course in London (2009 and 2011), The British Hair and Nail Group course in Brighton and Glasgow (2012 and 2018), and the British Association of Dermatologists Clinical update meeting (2015). In 2016, I hosted a national course on photodynamic therapy (PDT) at Solihull Hospital on daylight PDT. I was awarded a fellowship with the Royal College of Surgeons in 2016 (FRCP).
Being involved in research gives me a better understanding of dermatological diseases and new treatments. I have been a principal investigator for three national research studies in hair disease and photodynamic therapy between 2015-2020.
I enjoy contributing new knowledge to my field, and I am an author on more than 25 publications in peer-reviewed journals and more than 40 published abstracts presented at national and international scientific congresses.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Manjit Kaur at Spire include:
All general dermatological problems eg eczema, psoriasis, acne, allergy, photosensitive skin problems as well as hair and scalp disorders.
