Overview

About me

Roy Palmer MBBS MA MRCP PhD is a Consultant Dermatologist. He studied pre-clinical medicine at Oxford University and clinical medicine at Guy’s & St. Thomas’ Hospitals, London.
He qualified as a consultant dermatologist in 2002. To gain further experience he then worked for four years as a Senior Fellow at St. John’s Institute of Dermatology (in St. Thomas’ Hospital, London), an internationally renowned tertiary referral centre for skin disease. During this time he conducted research into the effects of sunlight on skin, which resulted in a PhD. He has written many research papers and textbook chapters. From 2007 until 2012 Dr Palmer was a Consultant at Heatherwood & Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Trust. He resigned in 2012 and now works only in the private sector. As a result of this he has sufficient time to provide the high standard of care and attention to detail that he believes patients should expect. He maintains his skills by participating in local and national dermatology meetings and conferences, and through other forms of ‘Continuing Professional Development’. Under new regulations, all doctors must ‘revalidate’ (ie. prove they are still fit to practice) every five years -Dr Palmer revalidated in December 2013.

He is aware of the severe effect that skin (and hair) disease can have on people’s lives. Itch can be debilitating and skin conditions can have a major effect on people’s self-confidence. He also finds treating skin cancer very satisfying.

Of his patients, approximately half consult him about possible skin cancer, and half about other skin problems that include eczema, acne, psoriasis, vitiligo, benign skin lesions and hair loss. Dr Palmer listens to patients to understand their concerns and tailors treatment to their preferences.
