Richard Pyper MBBChir FRCS(Ed) FRCOG


Consultant Gynaecologist & Obstetrician

A career obstetrician and gynaecologist from the start, Richard sought a broad experience of general surgery as a basis for specialist training in gynaecological surgery. His training was in London, starting at the Middlesex Hospital, St Mary’s Hospital, Queen Charlotte’s Hospital, Guys Hospital and then as Senior Registrar at St Bartholomew’s Hospital.

He was appointed as an NHS Consultant to Western Sussex Hospitals in 1992. He was Clinical Director for 6 years until 1998 and was Chairman of the Labour Standing Committee from 1999 to 2003.

Enjoying the intellectual challenges of being the Clinical Tutor for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) on behalf of the hospital from 2004 to 2012, Richard expanded into the medico-legal sector where he now runs a busy practice. He has been an Expert Witness since 1994 and has prepared more than 900 reports on a wide variety of subjects for both claimants and defendants. He was instructed as a Single Joint Expert in the Liverpool Urogynaecology litigation from 2011-2014 and wrote 90 reports on Breach, Causation, Condition and Prognosis after consultations with each patient.

Consultations with clients for Condition and Prognosis reports take place in the local private hospital in Sussex. Richard undertakes 30 medicolegal conferences per year with solicitors and barristers and has attended court on 12 occasions. Richard’s aim is to contribute towards rising standards of clinical care, and he is dedicated to improving patient safety through risk management and training. He enjoys teaching and training junior doctors in both clinical practice and surgery.
