I am a friendly and enthusiastic consultant, very passionate about my work. After completing my general medical training in Birmingham, I undertook specialist training in dermatology in renowned dermatology centres in the West Midlands. During my training I maintained a high professional profile by publishing multiple articles in prestigious national dermatology journals and presenting papers regularly at national and international meetings. I was awarded prizes by the British Association of Dermatology and the Midlands Dermatological Society as well as a fellowship from the British Photodermatology Group. Until recently I was a member of the British Association of Dermatology Therapy & Guideline Committee, being involved in producing and updating national clinical guidelines in dermatology. I received specialist accreditation in 2016 when I was appointed as a consultant dermatologist at Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust (presently working at Good Hope and Solihull Hospitals).
I undertake general dermatology clinics, treating acne, inflammatory skin conditions (such as eczema, psoriasis and all types of “rashes”), allergies and all types of skin cancers. I operate on skin cancers, moles, skin tags, cysts and warts. I have a special interest in diagnosing and managing sun induced conditions (photodermatoses) and I spent time in renowned photodermatology centres across the UK (London, Manchester, Cardiff, Dundee) as well as in France to broaden my knowledge in this field.
I am currently working towards setting up a photobiology centre based at Solihull Hospital which would be the first in the West Midlands to provide care for patients with sun induced conditions.
