Dr Rashid has been a Consultant since 2018. She graduated in 2007 from University College London and undertook her Foundation year training in the South Thames Deanery. She completed a prestigious Academic Clinical Fellowship in Allergy in 2012, from Brighton. This was a 3-year post, which comprised comprehensive training in General Medicine, as well as research and clinical experience in Allergic disease. She subsequently took up a post in Allergy at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in London for over a year. She became a member of the Royal College of Physicians in 2013. Following that, she moved to the West Midlands where she completed her Higher Specialist Training in Dermatology.

Dr Rashid understands that skin diseases can be very distressing and considerably impact on individuals’ quality of life. She believes everyone should be able to enjoy healthier skin and is committed to helping people to achieve this. Her caring manner and meticulous approach, help her to provide high standards of care to her patients.

She has published several papers in peer-reviewed journals and has presented her work at regional and national conferences.
