Background Information

Professional Profile

I have been a GP since 1992 and later developed my Dermatology interest, working at both Good Hope and at the Birmingham Skin Centre as well as in Community Dermatology clinics since 1994.

I took the Cardiff Diploma in Practical Dermatology in 2011 & have subsequently been involved in teaching  other GPs taking the Diploma.

I lecture on Dermatology locally & nationally to GPs and other clinical groups.

I have previously been an honorary lecturer in  Dermatology in the Department of Pharmacy, Aston university.

I am happy to see any patients with Dermatology problems, most types of General Practice issues except Gynaecology and I also have an interest in joint injections, injecting knees, shoulders, wrists (Carpal tunnel) & various bursae.
