About me

After completing my general professional training in the West Midlands, I returned to the University Hospital in Nottingham to undertake my specialist training in dermatology. My research experience provided training in the treatment of allergic and inflammatory skin disorders, and I also developed further expertise in laser therapy and management of skin cancer. My training was consolidated by an overseas fellowship studying Mohs' Micrographic surgery, a highly specialised technique used in treating difficult skin tumours.
I have been able to provide a comprehensive dermatology service after being appointed a consultant in 1999. In addition to a specialised skin cancer and laser surgery service, my practice at Spire Parkway and Solihull Hospitals involves the treatment of a broad spectrum of skin disorders.
In addition to my clinical duties, I have been the clinical director of dermatology for over ten years. I am proud that the quality of our service has been recognised nationally and I was honoured to recently receive the ‘Building Healthier Lives Clinical Excellence Award’.
Away from work, I have always taken a keen interest in sport, and have played in cricket, tennis, basketball and squash teams. Currently I am a member of a local sports and squash club. More recently I have learnt to play golf, although regrettably the pressure of time means that this is restricted to a few rounds in the summer months.
The highlight of my interest in outdoor pursuits and hill walking was when I completed the 'Tour du Mont Blanc' circuit in the Alps. I am also a proficient skier. I also enjoy the more sedentary pleasures of the theatre, concerts and cinema as well as fine food. Most of all, we enjoy family pursuits with our two daughters, who keep us busy!
