Richard is the owner and director of ProActive Prosthetics. His passion throughout his career has been socket design and it was this that inspired him to set up his own clinic, providing patients with better levels of comfort, supported by a multidisciplinary team in a progressive professional environment, where time is taken to achieve optimum results.
Richard has selected and trained a team of highly skilled prosthetists and healthcare professionals to work with him to, in his own words, make more possible, for each individual patient.
As a patient, when you come to see Richard, he will listen to your needs and aspirations and ensure expectations are realistic and achievable. He will work with you to create the optimum socket and comfort.
Richard believes the patient-prosthetist relationship is key in achieving the best outcome. Good communication is essential to provide feedback on how the socket ‘feels’ and builds a foundation of trust. This relationship continues from the initial assessment and socket over time, often decades, supporting patients through various occasions, goals and challenges in their lives.
