About me

Dr Christopher Heaton – BSc(Hon) MBCHB MRCP MRCP(Derm)

I am a Consultant Dermatologist practising at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust with private practices in Southampton, Portsmouth and Chichester.

I specialise in skin cancer assessment and surgery, along with inflammatory diseases of the skin such as eczema, psoriasis and acne. I also treat diseases of the hair, scalp and nails.

I work in Portsmouth University NHS Trust Dermatology, one of the busiest and best departments in the Country. 

I have specialist training and interests in all aspects of clinical dermatology, skin cancer, including general dermatology, such as psoriasis, acne, eczema, vitiligo, itchy skin, rosacea, hair disorders and allergy, in skin lesions such as moles, skin tags or cysts, in skin cancer treatment (melanoma and non-melanoma), in sun damage and associated treatments, and in photodynamic therapy.

I have carried out thousands of operations on all areas of the skin in the treatment of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. For the NHS I carry out twice-weekly surgical lists, performing over twenty procedures every week.

I graduated in medicine from the University of Edinburgh in 2005 having studied preclinical medicine at the University of St Andrews, and began his training in dermatology in 2007 at Portsmouth Hospitals Trust dermatology department. I finished my training on the Wessex rotation, in 2016.

I am a member of the Royal College of Physicians London, of the British Association of Dermatologists, the British Society for Medical Dermatology, and the British Society for Surgical Dermatology.

Reviews

“Dr Heaton had a professional and reassuring manner and most importantly, listened to my concerns and responded with explanations, suggested treatments and further referral suggestions. An examination was conducted in privacy with a female nurse present followed by discussion. I felt very comfortable, not rushed and was treated with respect and courtesy. I received an email within a few hours outlining the appointment and provided further useful information to assist me”​

“Dr Heaton was very thorough and once he checked my face lesion which was my main reason for the consultation he gave me the once over to make sure there were no other concerns on my body that I didn’t know about. He sent me an email explaining what he had found and how he was going to deal with it by the time I had got home.”​

“This was my first consultation and I was impressed by the friendly and direct approach to diagnosing and explaining my condition. I appreciated the two-way dialogue and opportunity to raise a few questions and received a pragmatic response which is just what I was seeking. Excellent experience in all and I won’t hesitate to recommend Chris Heaton in the future.”​

In my NHS Clinic today I had 2 patients whose lives have been saved by the revolutionary immunotherapy and checkpoint inhibitor drugs for malignant melanoma. I also had a patient receiving treatment for metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma.
These agents are invaluable, but cost the NHS increasingly many millions of pounds.

Both of these conditions if caught early are treatable, without the need for such medications.

Please have skin awareness, and present if you have any changing moles, or new painful shouldered centrally keratotic nodules on sun exposed sites.

This is the Melanoma UK annual mole hunt, so please get checking.

Thanks, Dr Christopher James Heaton

When is a mole not a mole?

This why you should see a dermatologist for treatment rather than have it removed by a cosmetic specialist. See Zoe's story to learn more and please sign the petition.

I have looked after several people in similar devastating positions over the last few years.

Moles can be confused with basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma one of the many adnexal tumours and melanoma among many others.

Book an appointment if you have any areas of concern.
