Dr Ross Martin MBChB, MRCGP, DRCOG

Dr Martin trained to registrar level in general surgery and then worked in ENT for 18 months. Before entering UK general practice he practiced for 18/12 in a country town in rural Australia performing all types of surgery from skin cancers up to colonic cancer surgery.

Alongside his UK general practice Dr Martin has held clinical sessions in operative plastic surgery and ENT.

For 6 years in the 1990s he provided a skin surgery service, on a two week wait basis, including more complex procedures such as skin cancer excision. This was available to all the practices in Nottingham. The service was strictly audited with very good results. Dr Martin continues to offer this service to his own patients.

Dr Martin has private interests in cosmetic lasers and aesthetic medicine and has lectured and taught on the subject internationally.

He has provided a vasectomy service to the local community since the early 1990s and has been performing the operation privately since 1988.
