He was the lead Consultant Dermatologist at East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust for 5 years and was instrumental in establishing the Friends Dermatology Centre at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital, the hub of the "hub and spoke" model for delivering skin care that was created across the Trust.

Prior to this, Dr Hudson-Peacock had set up his own private dermatological and laser practice at the Chaucer Hospital in Canterbury in 1996. Eventually, he extended his role into the Spencer Wing within the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital in Margate. With the aim of providing a more holistic approach to skin care, he and Dr. Alice set up a clinic to be able to offer the full range of dermatological treatments, supported by nurses and aestheticians.
