Marta is a highly qualified nurse prescriber who specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of hair loss. Marta’s role is to consult patients who are suffering with hair loss, diagnose their condition, explain the cause of their hair loss and discuss the various treatment options available.

As a nurse prescriber with a passion for scientific data and evidence-based treatments, Marta is able to explain the very latest treatment options and is licensed to prescribe medication. This enables her to offer a compassionate and comprehensive one-stop service, where patients can spend time discussing their concerns, receive an accurate diagnosis and start an evidence-based treatment plan. Marta is available to provide a personal service, guiding you through your treatment, supporting you with regard to any concerns you may have about treatment side effects and reviewing your progress over the following months and years. Keeping in touch with Marta allows you to stay up to date with any developments in the hair loss field and provides an opportunity for her to recommend adjustments or changes to your treatment plan, ensuring a truly personalised and scientific approach to your care.
