Over 28 years of experience
A nationally recognised expert
Mr Peach qualified from University of Bristol Medical School in 1989, continuing his surgical training in Bristol, the South West and New Zealand, a country with one of the world’s highest rates of skin cancer. At the end of his training he completed a fellowship at the internationally renown Melanoma Institute of Australia (Sydney Melanoma Unit, as it was known then). This experience in Sydney was inspirational to his practice and significantly shaped how he approaches the many different challenges people with all types of skin cancer have.
In 2003 he was appointed as a consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust with a specific role to support the melanoma and skin cancer services.
Mr Peach does not perform cosmetic surgery. Whilst trained in this area of surgery, he decided to focus his expertise in providing a comprehensive skin cancer service. He is a nationally recognised expert in the diagnosis, management and follow up of all types of skin cancer. He is the only Plastic Surgeon in Leeds to be a core member of both the regional skin cancer services and is frequently consulted by his colleagues, who have patients with difficult skin cancers to manage.
