PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS, ACADEMIC AND COMMITTEE WORK 

 

 

I am a member of the British Association of Dermatologists, the American Academy of Dermatology, the Royal Society of Medicine, the British Society for the Study of Vulval Diseases  (Council member) and the British Society for Dermatopathology.

I passed the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) exam in 1995, and was elected to Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2008. 

I was a member of The British Association of Dermatologists’ Therapy and Guidelines sub-committee between 2011 and 2016 during which time I co-wrote and edited the patient information leaflets on the British Association of Dermatologists’ website (www.bad.org.uk) which are written to facilitate understanding of skin conditions.

I was a member of the Speciality Question Group for Dermatology from 2006-2016, writing questions for the MRCP exam. In 2016 I moved to the Dermatology Speciality Certificate Examination writing group, also under the auspices of the Royal College of Physicians. 

I have been involved in judging at the British Association of Dermatologists' annual conference for 2 years, chairing the poster judging in 2016.

I am the overall chair of judges for 2017 and 2018. 

I joined the Council of the British Society for the Study of Vulval Diseases in 2016 and am now a Council member.


My research into genetic aspects of skin cancer was awarded an MD from the University of London  in 2004. I  lecture widely in Dermatology and Dermatopathology on several annual courses and invited lectures. 

 

I set up the weekly clinicopathological conference at the Royal Free in 2004, and run weekly dermatopathology teaching there.

My NHS clinics are at the Royal Free Hospital (Hampstead). I see private patients at the Platinum Medical Centre, Wellington Hospital (St John's Wood), The London Clinic (near Harley Street), The Harley Street Health Centre and at the Royal Free Hospital. 

I have three daughters, the oldest of whom had severe eczema for several years. In addition to my training in the eczema clinics at The Royal London Hospital and The Royal Free Hospital, I have first hand experience as a parent of the distressing skin condition.

I believe in communicating clearly with patients and that the best outcomes are achieved when they fully understand their condition and are actively involved in the their treatment.

EXPERIENCE

I have worked as a Dermatologist since 1996, and started my Consultant (Specialist) post at The Royal Free Hospital in 2004. As part of my 8 years of training in clinical dermatology and dermatological surgery, I undertook a Doctor of Medicine higher degree, gaining my MD at the University of London in 2004. 

EDUCATION and TRAINING 

I achieved my Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) in 1995. I was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP) in 2008. I was a member of The British Association of Dermatologists’ Therapy and Guidelines sub-committee between 2011 and 2016. 

I have worked as a Dermatologist since 1996, and started my Consultant (Specialist) post at The Royal Free Hospital in 2004. In addition to 5 years of training in clinical dermatology and dermatological surgery, I undertook a Doctor of Medicine higher degree, gaining my MD at the University of London in 2004. My work involved clinical and genetic aspects of skin cancer and melanocytic naevi (moles).

I have worked with patients with unusual numbers of moles and genetic conditions predisposing to cancer to identify changes in the skin that could indicate an increased risk of cancer. This includes the ‘atypical mole syndrome’ in which affected individuals have large numbers of moles, several of which are atypical.

I am trained in all aspects of dermatology, including eczema, acne, hair loss, psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa, warts and other skin lesions and rashes.
