About Dr Rachael Coates              MBChB BSc MRCS(Ed) PG Cert (Transplantation)

rCoates270250After graduating as a doctor in 2007 from Liverpool University Rachael continued to pursue a career in surgery.  Currently working in general surgery she has always had an interest in the skin and aesthetics taking several optional extra placements in this as an undergraduate.  Following training through Oris Medical, a reputable aesthetics doctor-run company whose ethos is in favor of regulation of the aesthetics industry and appropriately trained and skilled practitioners; Rachael began a Saturday morning clinic @Skincompany, Yarm.  Application of her practical skills has set her practice apart from other local practitioners whom are not trained surgeons.  Constantly striving to stay up to date Rachael is continuing training into advanced aesthetic non-surgical procedures so if a treatment you require is not on the pricelist please ask for availability and advice.

We feel that accountability in a largely unregulated field is paramount.  By having regular clinics Dr Rachael Coates is readily available for questions or concerns, ad-hoc follow-up appointments and directly to deal with any complaints or concerns.  Having a doctor lead an aesthetic clinic also provides clients with the assurance that should they require a prescription for a complication of a procedure which has occurred (such as acyclovir for cold sore reactivation) then they will not have a lengthy wait at their general practice to obtain this.

Recently Dr Rachael has taken on mentorship of qualified aesthetic nurse Ellie McGowan.  This involves training Ellie specifically in Dr Rachael’s honed techniques practically as well as advancing her background knowledge of all aspects of aesthetics.  It will be possible to book in specifically with Ellie for procedures once she has graduated from the mentorship program.  Unlike most other aesthetic nurses who attend a one or two day course, Ellie is undergoing a 3 month additional intense training program to keep standards at the Skin company exceeding all other local practitioners.
