He spent most of his career at the Manchester and Salford Hospital for Skin Diseases. He was also a physician in the VD department of MRI and 1931 became head of the department of dermatology, and honorary dermatologist at Park Hospital [later Trafford General]. He also worked with the Christie Hospital Manchester to develop radiotherapy clinics to deal with skin malignancies. He was a former secretary of Manchester Dermatological Society from 1922-9, and secretary of the North of England Dermatological Society in 1929-30, and its president in 1939 and 1947.
