During 5 years of dermatology training in Nottingham he discovered a passion for dermatological surgery and subsequently was selected for a fellowship in dermatological surgery at the Welsh Institute of Dermatology in Cardiff. There he increased his repertoire of complex closures following the excision of skin cancers and learnt how to perform Mohs micrographic surgery. 
 
He returned to Kent in May 2011 following a year spent in Durban, South Africa where he is an honorary senior lecturer at the Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine. In Durban he set up a skin cancer centre, offering free treatment for those who could not afford care, from which he trained the local dermatologists in both basic and advanced skin cancer surgery and also set up the first recognised Mohs micrographic surgery service in the country.
