Dr Ashley Cooper
Dr Cooper, pictured right, suddenly lost consciousness in December 2012 and sadly died in ITU. He leaves his wife and two children, Genevieve and Cyrus. We all join Ashley’s wife, Clare, in her wish to “shout from the rooftops about how great he was”. Dr Cooper developed these Mohs maps.
Outside work he had many interests including martial arts, computers, technology, music and cars. Dr Cooper was a member of many national bodies including the specialist advisory committee to the Royal College of Physicians, British Society for Dermatological Surgery, Dermatology Council for England and the Melanoma Taskforce at the Houses of Parliament. He was also an elected Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. Dr Ashley Cooper was one of the most respected consultants in UK dermatology and saved the lives of numerous patients with skin cancer. He is credited with being a driving force in the development of the Mohs Micrographic Surgery service in East Kent. He also looked after patients with other skin problems, treating thousands of people each year.
The BSDS misses his enthusiasm and wonderful nature. We are proud to continue Ashley’s legacy and keep his innovative spirit alive by allowing members to download his very helpful Mohs Maps and Surgical logbook. Please see below.
