Pete graduated from King’s College, London in 1997, and now works as a GP at Corinthian Surgery, St Paul’s Medical Centre, Cheltenham. He has more than 20 years’ experience in dermatology and minor surgical procedures, and has a special interest in skin cancer treatment. Wherever possible, he tries to close wounds with subcutaneous sutures to improve the cosmetic result of the scar. He is a part-time GPSI (GP with a Special Interest) in Dermatology at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust. He has Diplomas in Practical Dermatology and in dermoscopy (skin surface microscopy).

Pete says:

“I enjoy chatting to patients during surgery to put them at ease and find out a bit more about them. It’s great to be able to help manage these skin problems, offering important services not available on the NHS.”
