Professional profile

Dr McKenna is a Consultant Dermatologist experienced in the diagnosis and care of all aspects of skin problems. He has particular expertise in the early diagnosis and the surgical management of skin cancers. He believes in taking the time to listen to his patients, fully explaining the diagnosis and all appropriate treatment options.

Dr McKenna graduated from Glasgow University. He completed his specialist dermatology training in Belfast. He then went on to train in additional advanced dermatological surgery, lasers, and Mohs micrographic surgery for complex skin cancers in St Thomas' Hospital, London. He is one of only a few consultants in the UK that have completed a Mohs Micrographic Surgery training fellowship in addition to their general dermatology training.

Dr McKenna was appointed as a Consultant Dermatologist with a specialist interest in dermatological surgery and skin cancer at Leicester Royal Infirmary in 2008. He quickly set up a much needed Mohs Micrographic Surgery service permitting access to this specialised treatment to patients across the region.

Dr Mckenna continues to be the Lead Clinician for Mohs Micrographic Surgery in Leicester, accepting referrals from GPs and from other consultant colleagues locally and regionally.

Dr Mckenna is the Lead Clinician for skin cancer in the East Midlands for the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). He promotes research and recruits to several national research studies. He is a collaborator in on-going research in the fields of Melanoma and Basal Cell Carcinoma.
