Miss Payne has dedicated her training to achieving a high standard in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. She attended QMC (London University) to obtain a first class BSc(Hons) degree in Genetics, then completed her medical degree at St Thomas’s and Guys Hospitals in 1994, followed by a Masters degree at UCL.
