About me

After graduating from Cambridge University in 1988, I completed my medical school training in Newcastle.
My first interest in skin disease developed while I was working as a junior doctor in Durham. I subsequently undertook specialist training in Glasgow. During this time I gained valuable experience in the internationally recognised melanoma unit at the Western Infirmary under Professor Rona Mackie. I also undertook both clinical and laboratory research during my time in training and published my results in a number of scientific journals.
I moved to Cornwall in 1999 to take on a new consultant post at the Royal Cornwall Hospital working with Dr Bill Bowers and Dr David Gould.
During my time in Cornwall I was lead clinician in the Dermatology Department for a number of years. I currently work across the South West region and am a consultant Dermatologist at the Royal Devon and Exeter hospital, with an honorary contract at Musgrave Park hospital in Taunton. I also run a rapid access skin cancer screening service in Truro in partnership with the Royal Cornwall Hospital (the Cornwall Skin Clinic). I have represented the South West on the executive board of the British Association of Dermatologists and have also chaired the skin group of the Peninsula Cancer Network.
In addition to seeing patients with all types of skin disease, I have a special interest in skin cancer and am one of only a small group of Dermatologists in the UK who undertakes Mohs’ micrographic surgery.
I still publish regularly and am involved in clinical research as part of the UK dermatology clinical trials network.
I live near Truro with my wife, two daughters and our dog, Ruby.
