**COVID Information** I am undertaking telephone/video consultations by default. Face-to-face consultations and/or surgery are undertaken on a case by case basis if indicated due to a 'time-critical' condition (e.g. skin cancer).
I am a friendly, experienced consultant dermatologist with over 10 years’ experience and am passionate about delivering personalised, high quality skin care to all patients. I completed undergraduate training, winning a medical scholarship at Guy’s, King’s, and St Thomas’ Medical School, London. After post-graduate medical training at Barts and The London Hospitals, I joined the West Midlands Higher Specialist Training Programme in Dermatology and received Specialist Accreditation in 2012. During this time I published numerous abstracts and articles in peer reviewed journals and regularly presented my work at national and international academic meetings.
I offer the full range of treatment comprehensive assessment and treatment of inflammatory conditions of the skin, hair and nails, such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and other rashes. As part of this I also undertake patch testing for the investigation of allergic contact dermatitis and treat hyperhidrosis (excess sweating) with BoTox injections). My sub-speciality area of interest is skin cancer risk assessment, diagnosis and treatment and I undertake weekly cancer screening clinics in the NHS. I have been Consultant Lead for Skin Cancer at Walsall Manor Hospitals since 2013 and am an active member of the West Midlands Skin Cancer Expert Advisory Group. I am a trained skin surgeon and undertake surgical lists, at minimum weekly, completing over 200 cases on an annual basis. I have also received advanced surgical training and regularly perform complex surgical procedures for skin cancer treatment.
In addition to my clinical work I am also proud to have been recently appointed Specialty Lead for Dermatology at the University of Birmingham, leading on delivery of medical student teaching, ongoing assessment and examination.
