Board Member British College Aesthetic Medicine
Member of The Primary Care Dermatology Society (PCDS)

Over the last 15 years I have developed a special expertise and experience in Dermatology.It is true to say Dermatology has become a passion for me, both dealing with serious conditions and cosmetic problems.I am continually updating my skills and a lot of my Continuing Professional Development is in the sphere of Dermatology.

In addition to my work as a family doctor I have worked as an NHS Dermatology department and ran an NHS GPWSI Dermatology Clinic. I now work as a Hospital Practitioner in Dermatology in addition to my work as a GP.

In my NHS work I deal with distressing conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne and also skin cancer.
I have been a General Practitioner working in South Devon for the last 30 years.

Recently I was appointed a Board Member of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine and I hope to make a worthwhile contribution to this rapidly developing new medical specialty. I have now also taken on the role of Finance Director/Secretary of BCAM.

I qualified in 1980 from Bristol Medical School and after hospital jobs in Bristol, Frenchay and Plymouth,settled in South Devon to be a GP.

About the Erme Clinic

The purpose of the Erme Clinic is to treat skin lesions that are not serious, but just a nuisance or unsightly and can easily be removed by a simple, quick operation under local anaesthetic. The local anaesthetic is very similar to the sort you would have at the dentist.

Also the purpose of the Erme Clinic is to offer facial treatments to rejuvenate the skin and remove wrinkles and put back lost voume in the face.

These treatments are worthwhile as the improved facial appearance restores self -confidence and actually makes patients feel better about themselves.

As a Board Member of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine, Dr Harker only offers safe, clinically proven methods with a good track record of use in regulated medical regimes.

Dr Harker is assisted by fully trained nurses who are experienced in theatre and dermatology.

The sessions are held on a Wednesday evening and a Saturday morning.

Each patient’s particular problem and their general health is assessed individually and for that reason the prices included here are only a guide. It is better to plan some cosmetic operations treatments at least 2 weeks before any important event or foreign travel. Dr Harker will advice you precisely when she assesses your problem. For other treatments, such as fillers it is also wise to observe this precaution.

Cosmetic surgical operations are not generally available under the NHS, and non- surgical cosmetic treatments are not available under the NHS. If Dr Harker consults a patient whose condition may be eligible for treatment under the NHS she will inform them

What is the BCAM?

The British College of Aesthetic Medicine was formed in 2000 to provide a professional body for the growing number of doctors offering cosmetic dermatology procedures. The body provides training, regular meetings and enables members to be abreast of the latest developments and keep up-dated. It is an important step in regulating this field of medicine.



Why see a doctor for non-surgical cosmetic treatments?

It is important to see a Doctor who specialises in Cosmetic Dermatology and has further training in Dermatology to be assured of in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology , correct medical procedures, risks and limitations.
