Mr Godwin Scerri
Consultant Plastic, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgeon
LRCP(Lond) MRCS(Eng) FRCS(Eng) FRCS(Plast)
I am well established in the health community in the local area, where I am now the most senior Plastic Surgeon with over 20 years of experience in performing cosmetic plastic surgical procedures as part of my private practice.
I first joined the Royal Air Force Medical Branch as a Medical Cadet in 1980, later qualifying as a doctor from the Royal London Hospital Medical College in 1982. I underwent plastic surgery training in London, Stoke Mandeville, Glasgow, Cambridge and Oxford. I have always had an interest in cosmetic surgery based on an open, sincere approach with patients and on achieving a natural result and received extensive training in this field from these early stages of my career.
My consultant career commenced in 1996 with 13 years at the Royal Hospital Haslar as Defence Consultant Advisor (DCA) in Plastic Surgery, building up a new Plastic Surgery Unit at this site. By the time Haslar closed in 2009, this unit, now four consultants strong, transferred to the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, when I was appointed Military Clinical Director.
My military experience includes detachments or deployments to Saudi Arabia (Gulf War), Germany, Northern Ireland, The Falkland Islands, Bosnia, the RFA Argus and most recently to Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, where I did tours in 2009, 2011 and 2013. I retired from the Royal Air Force in 2014 at the rank of Group Captain, after 35 years of distinguished military service and continue to conduct an NHS clinical practice in plastic surgery with special interests in skin cancer and hand surgery.
I have published papers on hand surgery, burn injury, soft tissue infections, skin cancer, aesthetic surgery and telemedicine - in addition to contributions to textbooks on plastic surgery and trauma surgery.
