Consultant Dermatologist, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
Jonathan graduated from the University of Nottingham Medical School in 2000. After a year of work as a junior doctor, he spent two years in Japan on a Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation Scholarship. This involved a year of language study, followed by a year of research at the National Centre for Child Health and Development. The focus of the research was the reliability of medical information on the internet and patients' ability to discriminate between reliable and unreliable information sources. He also undertook a clinical attachment at Showa University Hospital Department of Dermatology. He returned to the UK to complete his medical training at King's College Hospital in London and Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals, gaining Membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 2005. He undertook his dermatology specialist training at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. During this time he was awarded one of the first UKDCTN SpR Fellowships, and worked on an update of a Cochrane review of interventions for vitiligo. He was also involved in the vitiligo Priority Setting Partnership organised in conjunction with the James Lind Alliance. In 2010 he moved to Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham as a consultant dermatologist. He combines his clinical work with research projects, which include feasibility work to guide future trials of vitiligo treatments and a trial of specialist clothing for eczema.
