Dr Richard Pearson – Medical Director

Dr Richard Pearson is a Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist and Medical Director at Cheswold Park Hospital. He qualified in medicine and surgery at The Royal London Hospital Medical College and trained in Forensic Psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry and Maudsley Hospital London. Whilst at the Institute he published several papers on mentally disordered offenders and trained as a Forensic Medical Examiner.

At the Maudsley his work included visiting psychiatrist to Brixton Prison and working on the secure wards at the Bethlem Royal Hospital. After a post as Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist at Broadmoor Hospital, Dr Pearson went on to become Medical Director for Forensic Services for the Priory Group. Here he was directly involved in expanding their forensic division by developing new secure hospitals and the teams and systems needed to deliver high quality patient care.

Dr Pearson joined the project at Cheswold Park Hospital at the planning stage with the aim of developing a service that would deliver state of the art care to patients in partnership with those that commission their care.
