Wilbraham Place Practice Practitioners: Dr Fiona McCarthy
Practitioner at Wilbraham Place Practice. View all
Having graduated in medicine in 2002 from the University of Sheffield, Dr Fiona embarked on a career within the NHS where she specialised in oncology, climbing to the top of her field as a consultant medical oncologist, specialising in dermatological cancers. She continues to work as a consultant oncologist in the NHS part-time at a central London teaching hospital. As well as her extensive clinical qualifications, she also maintains an academic interest and she was awarded a PhD by the University of London in 2017 for her work on the links between inflammation and cancer.
Dr Fiona’s passion and expertise in dermatology formed the perfect pathway for her to switch careers and pursue her passion for aesthetics, following the birth of her two children. She experienced first-hand how overwhelming the skincare and aesthetic landscape could be, and is now committed to demystifying the process for her own patients, creating a foundation of trust and expert guidance to help achieve their skincare, beauty and wellbeing goals.
Dr Fiona is renowned for her subtle yet transformative results and has a passion for a holistic and preventative approach to ageing. Her style is about subtle enhancements and helping patients look like the best version of themselves – healthy, rested and rejuvenated – not suspiciously wrinkle-free or over-done.
Education and scientifically proven results are central to Dr Fiona’s ethos and she has completed extensive training with several respected aesthetic training courses, including the Allergan Medical Academy programme under renowned global leader, Dr Mauricio De Maio.
Dr Fiona has a passion for holistic approaches to wellness: as a busy working mother of two, she is dedicated to helping patients restore their health and self-confidence through a combination of aesthetic treatments, skincare and wellness.
Dr Fiona is a frequent speaker on preventative approaches to ageing, and has a keen interest in education, regularly attending conferences and advanced training workshops to ensure the best for her patients.
