A Welcome Note

Opting for cosmetic or reconstructive surgery is a significant decision and choosing the right surgeon is vital. Your surgeon should be experienced and able to offer independent professional advice.

It is important that you feel informed and confident when making a decision about potential surgery. Your safety is paramount.

I have had a private medical practice in Devon since 1995 and demitted from the NHS after 35 years of service in 2017 to increase my committment to medical education at the College of Medicine & Health, University of Exeter where I am appointed as an Associate Professor, lead for Clinical Anatomy and Responsible Person for Fitness to Practice on the BMBS program.  I continue to hold an Honorary contract at the  Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust as Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon but my clinical practice is based at Nuffield Health Exeter.

If you would like any further information about my private practice, please contact Claire Marks 01392 262123 or email claire.marks@nuffieldhealth.com
