Congratulations to Dr David Fenton

8th January 2013

Alopecia UK is very pleased to announce that Dr David Fenton, consultant dermatologist, has been awarded an MBE for services to the treatment of skin and hair disorders in the New Year Honours List. 

ďIím extremely flattered and humbled by the award, and Iím delighted that it has come about as a result of patient and support group nominations,Ē said Dr Fenton.

Dr Fentonís work in hair and scalp disease began 30 years ago as a research interest at St Thomasí Hospital when he carried out the original research on topical Minoxidil Ė the first hair re-growth solution. 

The hair clinic at St Johnís Institute of Dermatology, St Thomasí Hospital has developed into the only dedicated national hair and scalp clinic in the UK.  It recognises the importance not only of the physical symptoms, but also the emotional and psychological impact it has on patients and families. 
David works closely with Alopecia UK on its Advisory Panel, by holding question and answer sessions at support meetings, and in providing information on treatments and research, and he also works with the support charity Changing Faces.
