Virtual consultations:

I have been a Consultant Dermatologist and dermatopathologist for over five years, with at least seven years training in the specialty prior to that. In addition to seeing and treating patients and performing skin surgery for benign and malignant lesions, I report skin biopsies therefore enabling me to provide a comprehensive dermatology service. I have an interest in skin cancer, benign lesions of the skin as well as inflammatory skin conditions.

I specialise in all aspects of dermatology including skin cancer, benign lesions of the skin and inflammatory skin diseases such as acne, psoriasis and eczema.

I have performed over 1,000 skin biopsies/excisions of benign and malignant lesions of the skin.

I am the Clinical Lead for dermatology at Basildon University Hospital and the Deputy Lead for skin cancer.
