Virtual consultations:

I am a full-time consultant dermatologist and clinical lead at Kingston Hospital to five dermatology consultants and two specialist nurses. I was appointed to Kingston Hospital in 2011. I developed the dermatology service at Kingston and Raynes Park Health Centre and community sites with excellent patient feedback. I am involved in acute dermatology management at Kingston Hospital.

I trained at Imperial College London and graduated in 2002, having gained a first class BSc in neuroscience in 1999. I've had the unique opportunity to work in several excellent dermatology units including Amersham Hospital and King's College Hospital. I trained locally on the dermatology rotation at George's, St Helier and Kingston.

Throughout my training I have won several prizes at the Royal Society of Medicine and the British Association of Dermatologists Annual Conference. I actively teach dermatology to undergraduates and postgraduates and organise a GP skin club at Kingston Hospital. I am currently the South London British Association of Dermatology Regional representative and the co-editor of the Clinical and Experimental Dermatology Journal.

I wrote a chapter on the skin effects of chemotherapy in the world renowned 'Textbook of Dermatology, 9th edition 2016'.
