Dr David Fairhurst
MB ChB, MRCP
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.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr David Fairhurst at Spire include:
Spire Methley Park Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
