Professional profile

I began my dermatology career 15 years ago in Manchester, before settling in West Yorkshire. I hold a substantive consultant post at Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, practising at Pinderfields and Pontefract.

I practice in all areas of dermatology and am the lead for the local skin cancer multidisciplinary team.

I have a specialist interest in alopecia / hair loss , receiving referrals from a wide range geographical area. I have completed research projects in alopecia areata and have numerous publications across all fields of dermatology.

I treat patients with conditions across all areas of dermatology.

I have an expertise in the assessment and treatment of alopecia. Treatments for this include steroid injections, when appropriate.

I hold clinics at Spire Methley Park Hospital on Wednesday evenings and alternate Friday mornings.
