I attended the University of Southampton Medical School (1987-1992) then undertook my general medical training to MRCP level on the South Coast, mainly in Portsmouth.
I started Dermatology in 1996 at The Royal London Hospital, then moved to St John’s Institute of Dermatology at St Thomas’. I returned to Barts and The London for my research where I gained my MD from the University of London. In my research I looked at genetic changes in the skin in familial cancer patients, including those with melanoma and multiple moles. My work has been published in international peer-reviewed journals. In total I trained for 8 years in Dermatology, between the Royal Free and Barts and the London, before taking up my consultant post at the Royal Free in 2004. Since 2006 I have also worked as a locum Consultant Dermatopathologist. At The Royal Free in 2004 I set up the weekly skin clinicopathological conference at which all the dermatologists and skin pathologists review interesting or difficult cases. I now run similar meetings in vulval and genitourinary skin pathology, and often review biopsies for my patients as a second opinion. I teach widely in both dermatology and skin pathology, and am a dermatology question writer for MRCP. In my NHS and private practice I see general dermatology patients, women with vulval skin conditions and patients with skin cancers and pigmented lesions. In my private practice I also see children, and carry out minor dermatological surgery such as diagnostic biopsies, small excisions and cryosurgery (cryotherapy) for conditions such as warts. I use Photodynamic therapy (PDT) for some pre-cancers. I work with several plastic surgeons to provide a rapid and seamless service for patients who require more specialist surgery. I am a core member of the Royal Free Skin Cancer MDT as both a pathologist and dermatologist. All my NHS and private skin cancer patients are discussed at the MDT.
