Dr Veronique Bataille sees Patients with all dermatological conditions and specialises in skin cancers, melanoma, familial melanoma, atypical nevi and family cancer syndromes.

Dr Bataille trained at the Louvain Medical School in Brussels and graduated in July 1985 with Magnum Cum Laude.  She started her dermatology training at St John's Institute of Dermatology Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust London in 1989.  Dr Bataille then moved to the Imperial Cancer Research Fund in London and The Royal London Hospital as a Clinical Research Fellow where she completed her PhD on the genetic epidemiology of skin and eye melanoma in 1995.

She spent many months in 1993 at the Sydney Melanoma unit in Australia, one of the busiest in the world and then moved to St George's Hospital London where she spent two years as a Senior Registrar again working in the pigmented lesions and melanoma clinic.

Veronique became a Consultant Dermatologist in 1996, when she was appointed Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Dermatologist at Barts and The London School of Medicine, where she continued her interest in the genetics of melanoma and other skin cancers.  Dr Bataille now practises at West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust where she provides specialised care for Patients with acne + eczema + psoriasis + moles + skin cancers.

In 2003 she was appointed Consultant and Advisor to the internationally known L'Oreal Paris.  Dr Bataille has published in numerous dermatology, genetic and cancer journals and regularly writes reviews and book chapters on skin cancer and other aspects of dermatology.  She is currently Assistant Editor of the Clinical and Experimental Dermatology journal.

You can learn more about Dr Bataille on her personal website and you can read her blog posts. And she has commented on an article on the genetic risk for skin cancer published by the BBC.

It was good to be there and we were seen by a very good doctor who knows what she is doing and she was helpful. The only thing is the price of the consultation is very expensive.
