Mr Peach qualified from Bristol in 1989, subsequently completing a skin cancer fellowship at the Sydney Melanoma Unit, Australia. He was appointed as a consultant Plastic Surgeon in Leeds in 2003. Since then he has been actively involved in establishing a comprehensive cancer service for the region.
He continues to develop regional and national guidelines for the management of skin cancer; has been instrumental in developing a national skin cancer fellowship for senior trainees; has reported to NICE on issues relating to melanoma and is currently chair of the Skin Cancer Special Interest Group for BAPRAS. He is actively involved with the Melanoma Focus Charity.
His private practice, in addition to medico-legal reports, mirrors his full time NHS practice, as he chooses not to perform any cosmetic surgery. He transferred his medical indemnity insurance to PRASIS in 2014, when unable to obtain individualised risk indemnity from other companies. He has subsequently joined the board of PRASIS in 2016.
