Woodford Medical was established in 1995 in Danbury, Essex, by Dr Hilary Allan and Dr Mervyn Patterson to fill a huge gap in the aesthetics industry in the country. This was soon followed by clinics in Cambridge, Belfast and Leamington Spa. The addition of the London clinic became an obvious extension of the Woodford Medical brand and is now renowned as a centre of excellence despite fierce competition from the faceless nationwide chains.

What distinguishes Woodford Medical from both the major corporate clinics and smaller independent concerns is that we aim to make our clients feel that their appearance and wishes matter to each and every one of the team and through continuity of care and getting to know us all, that they feel just how important as a client they are, both personally and professionally.

"Lovely, friendly staff - all very helpful and knowledgeable of the treatments offered by the clinic. The Dr administrating the procedure was extremely professional and, after hearing what my needs were, gave a very thorough and considered opinion on what treatment(s) he thought would benefit and suit me best. I would thoroughly recommend this clinic as being at an outstanding level and plan to continue having treatment here for the foreseeable future."

What makes Woodford Medical the right clinic for you?

Woodford Medical founders, Dr Hilary Allan and Dr Mervyn Patterson are a trusted and ethical partnership who have worked in the cosmetic industry since demand and awareness for aesthetic treatments began to grow in the early nineties. They were instrumental in developing applications for the use of Intense Pulsed Light in the UK for the treatment of facial rejuvenation and rosacea. As industry leaders, both doctors continue to pioneer new treatments and techniques across the whole aesthetic spectrum in particular advancing the way Botox and facial fillers are used today.

  • Dr Hilary Allan and Dr Mervyn Patterson are named in the top ten medical aesthetic doctors in the UK by the Evening Standard and The Daily Telegraph.

  • Listed in Hello Magazine as "Best in the business" for Botox.

  • Loved and quoted by beauty editors nationwide, Dr Hilary Allan is renowned as an expert in the field of cosmetic and medical aesthetics.
