About me

Dr Fletcher has over 20 years experience in Dermatology and has worked as a Consultant Dermatologist since 2003. She was a Consultant Dermatologist at Kingston Hospital for 15 years and was instrumental in establishing the Skin Cancer Multidisciplinary service.
Dr Fletcher trained at the world-renowned St John's Institute of Dermatology in London, Guy's and Lewisham Hospitals. She additionally spent 18 months in clinical research, studying the clinical features of fungal nail disease at Guy's Hospital. In 2001 a month long sabbatical was undertaken with a nail expert in Paris.
She has broad-ranging experience in adult and paediatric dermatology and has clinical interests in:
Skin cancer
Mole checks
Skin cancer screening
Sun damage
Infectious dermatology
The use of phototherapy (light treatment) for treating skin diseases
Teenage acne

Dr Fletcher provides generous appointment slots for unhurried, thorough consultations. She likes to work in partnership with her patients for optimal care. She performs minor skin procedures including:
Shave excisions
Small elliptical excisions
Curettage and hyfraecation
Diagnostic biopsies

Dr Fletcher works closely with her Plastic Surgery colleagues. She receives excellent patient and colleague feedback; data collected for revalidation in 2015 showed that 100% of her patients were confident with the care that she provided and were completely happy to see her again.
