Richard Herbert

I was a general practitioner in a large group practice and also an anaesthetist at the Kidderminster hospital and the Stourbridge group of hospitals.from 1967 until 2006.

Together with Barrie Davies, we set up the first voluntary pre-hospital trauma service in 1981 bringing advanced medical care to seriously injured patients. I retired from trauma responding at the end of 2012 being a member of the Mercia Accident Rescue Service (MARS).

I feel very strongly that the support the committee gives to the families of prostate cancer sufferers makes an important contribution to their wellbeing.
