About

Dr Fletcher has over 20 years experience in Dermatology and has worked as a Consultant Dermatologist since 2003. 

She has been interested in Dermatology since her medical school days and was awarded the Dermatology prize in her final undergraduate year. Her burgeoning interest was furthered by spending her elective in Australia combining adult and paediatric dermatology in Adelaide along with the Flying Obstetric and Gynaecology service in Queensland. 

Prior to starting clinical training posts in Dermatology at the prestigious St. John’s Institute of Dermatology, Guy’s Hospital and Lewisham Hospital, she undertook clinical research into the features of fungal toenail infections, based at Guy’s Hospital. Dr Fletcher intensified her study in this area during her final year of Dermatology specialist training; by spending a month-long sabbatical with a renowned Dermatologist in Paris.

Dr Fletcher was appointed Consultant Dermatologist at Kingston Hospital in 2003 and was instrumental in setting up the multidisciplinary skin cancer service. Her work within Dermatology was recognised by election to become a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2007. In the same year, her outstanding work was recognised within Kingston Hospital with a Level 2 Clinical Excellence Award.

Dr Fletcher receives excellent feedback; anonymised data collected for revalidation in 2015 showed that 100% of her patients were happy to see her again. Additionally, she receives high-quality feedback from colleagues.

Dr Fletcher retired from the NHS, after 28 years of service, in April 2018.

Dr Fletcher is passionate about providing the best care possible for patients. She gives generous appointment slots and likes to work in partnership with her patients. She has close links with her Plastic Surgeon colleagues.

She is supported by an excellent Practice Manager, Dodo Cassidy, who is always ready to take phone or email enquiries, within office hours. 

Dr Fletcher lives in Kingston and values the opportunity to look after the dermatological needs of her local community. When not working she enjoys landscape and nature photography and spending time with her family.

Dr Fletcher is registered with all the major Insurance Companies. She holds BUPA Premier Consultant status and is an AXA PPP Fee Approved Specialist.

It was a fantastic meeting with Dr Claire Fletcher. She listened carefully to my story and was pleased with all the documentation that I had to show her. She gave me lots of good advice and guidance. I have started following up as soon as I received her letter today. She was kind and definitely full of experience and knowledge. I felt good when I left the consulting room. The 'second opinion' was totally worthwhile. I cannot thank her enough.
