The Team

In addition to Dr Handley, the lead Consultant, we have three other Consultant staff:

  • Two Laser Nurses

We undertake 14 clinical treatment sessions per week – one general anaesthetic session under Dr McMullen for children with birthmarks, and thirteen outpatient day case sessions ( 2.5 doctor- led and 10.5 nurse -led).

From its humble beginnings, the current clinic workload has risen to just under 3000 patient treatment episodes per annum, which makes it one of the busiest laser centres within the United Kingdom, and on a par with any leading skin laser clinic worldwide.
