Professional profile

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'.

Clinical Interests

Special interests include severe drug reactions, skin cancer diagnosis and management and acute skin rashes.
