Professional profile

I qualified from the University of Melbourne, Australia in 1997. Following this I trained in medicine in England. My postgraduate dermatology experience was gained at the photobiology unit at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee and dermatology departments in Swansea, Cardiff and Newport.

I was appointed consultant dermatologist in 2009 in Newport where I was heavily involved in teledermatology services. I have also spent time as a dermatologist in Newcastle, Australia where I gained valuable experience treating patients with severe sun damage. following my return in 2016, I joined the West Kent Dermatology service as a lead consultant.

I am regularly involved in training GPs, registrars and medical students.
