Richard studied Medicine at St Mary’s Hospital Medical School (now Imperial College), qualifying in 1997. His specialty accreditation is in General Medicine, Geriatric Medicine and Stroke Medicine.

Since starting at Addenbrooke’s in 2007 Richard has participated in the development of a large number of projects and services. This has included the development of the Pre-operative Assessment Clinic for Older patients (PRIME) which has now become one of his main areas of clinical work. Richard spent four years as the Clinical Lead for the Department of Medicine for the Elderly and was also the Clinical Lead for the work with the Acute Frailty Network. With the local Clinical Commissioning Group, he set up a trust-wide system to enable the identification and management of frail older adults admitted to hospital. This research has been published in a number of International Medical Journals, leading to a 

variety of new and exciting research opportunities currently in development.

Despite service developments and management roles, Richard views himself very much as a clinician and still maintains a full time role on the wards looking after older adults.
