Picture Dr E Allan, Oncologist

Dr Ernest Allan is a Consultant Clinical Oncologist working in the Photodynamic Therapy department at the Christie Foundation Trust in Manchester. 

Dr Allan had an extensive experience in surgery and radiotherapy before taking the pre-clinical research from the Patterson Institute and initiating a clinical research project.  This developed into a pioneering clinical service for non-melanoma skin cancer that grew into a substantial clinic with a national and international reputation.

Dr Allan has a special interest in Gorlin syndrome and is a member of the multidisciplinary Gorlin syndrome treatment group located within Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS.
