Professional profile

I received my dermatology training at the University of Michigan, USA and the University of Manchester, UK. I am an American Board Certified dermatologist and on the UK Specialist Register, a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and a member of the British Association of Dermatologists. I am currently a Consultant Dermatologist at the Dermatology Centre, Salford Royal NHS Trust.

I have expertise in the diagnosis and management of diseases of the skin, hair and nails.

As the Dermatology Training Programme Director for the North Western Deanery and Chair of the Specialist Training Committee, I am extensively involved in the recruitment and training of dermatology registrars at both regional and national levels.

I am a founder member and President of the British Cosmetic Dermatology Group and a spokesperson on aesthetic issues and Trustee for the research charity the British Skin Foundation. As a past advisor to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and current member of the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) I influence both national and international policy relating to cosmetic procedures.

I am an internationally recognised key opinion leader in the area of cosmetic dermatology. As an Honorary Lecturer at the University of Manchester, I head clinical research on various aspects of aesthetic medicine and frequently interact with broadcast and print media on the subject. This has included appearances on the BBC's Horizon Programme and Channel 4's How to Look Good Naked.

In 2007 I was voted one of Britain's top doctors by Tatler Magazine.
