I have been a consultant dermatologist for the Medway and West Kent area since 1998, with considerable experience in medical and surgical dermatology. I am a core member of the West Kent skin cancer multidisciplinary team. Diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers is a major part of my work. I also treat other skin lesions and all inflammatory skin conditions including acne, eczema and psoriasis. I perform Patch Testing for skin allergies where necessary at the Kent Institute of Medicine and Surgery (KIMS).
My NHS practice is based at the Medway Maritime Hospital where I am a senior consultant and educational supervisor for trainee dermatologists and other doctors.
