Professional profile

Dr Roy Palmer is a Consultant Dermatologist at BMI Princess Margaret Hospital, Windsor, and BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital, Guildford. He studied pre-clinical medicine at Oxford University and clinical medicine at Guy’s & St. Thomas’ Hospitals, London. While he was a junior doctor he realised the enormous impact that skin disease can have on people’s lives, and started to learn about the variety of treatments available - such as surgery to remove skin cancers, medicines to relieve itch, and therapies that improve the appearance of skin. In 1998 he specialised in dermatology and began to train under dermatologists in the south of England. In 2002 he qualified as a Consultant Dermatologist.

To gain further experience he worked for four years as a Senior Fellow at St. John’s Institute of Dermatology (in St. Thomas’ Hospital, London), an internationally renowned tertiary referral centre for skin disease. During this time he conducted research into the effects of sunlight on skin, which resulted in a PhD. He has written many research papers and textbook chapters. From 2007 until 2012 Dr Palmer was a Consultant at Heatherwood & Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Trust. He resigned in 2012 and now works only in the private sector. As a result of this he has sufficient time to provide the high standard of care and attention to detail that he believes patients should expect. He maintains his skills by participating in local and national dermatology meetings and conferences, and through other forms of ‘Continuing Professional Development’.

Of his patients, approximately half consult him about possible skin cancer, and half about other skin problems that include eczema, acne, psoriasis, vitiligo, benign skin lesions and hair loss. Dr Palmer listens to patients to understand their concerns and tailors treatment to their preferences.
