Virtual consultations:

I have over 30 years of experience of adult and paediatric dermatology at leading NHS Trusts, including the Royal Marsden. I have specialist training in skin cancer diagnosis and management, cutaneous laser therapy for medical indications and cancer-related skin problems.

I am an expert in the use of dermoscopy for sub-surface visualisation of suspicious lesions, while offering surgical removal of moles and skin cancers.

I am the past-president (2016-17) of the prestigious St John's Dermatology Society, and am Lead Clinician in dermatology and skin cancer at Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust. My other NHS post is at The Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton, where I face challenging cases of cancer-related skin problems as well as skin cancers. A proportion of my referrals relate to skin cancers and moles.
