After an initial dabble with surgical training, Richard qualified as a GP in 2012 and has been a partner in Andover, Hampshire, since 2013. He has a longstanding passion for medical education, dividing his time equally between clinical general practice and a portfolio of educational roles.
Richard has been an RCGP examiner since 2019. He also co-directs and delivers MRCGP exam preparation courses for the RCGP, both locally and nationally. Richard has a longstanding interest in addressing differential attainment and after a post-CCT medical Education Fellowship, devised and ran an early intervention course for GPST1s for a number of years.
Alongside these roles in GP education, Richard is a Medial Tutor on the BM4 graduate entry medicine programme, working one day a week with students in a clinical setting at Royal Hampshire County Hospital, Winchester.
Richard has two young children and a greyhound who keep him busy outside of work. However, when time permits, he is most likely to be found sailing in the Solent, walking in the countryside or wild camping.
