Mr Richard Haywood was an undergraduate at St Thomas’s Hospital, London. He trained as a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon throughout the UK and was appointed as a Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) in 2005.
His broad surgical training and reconstructive practice covers all areas of surgical anatomy. Combining this and his passion for teaching he was delighted to be able to take up the post as Clinical Senior Lecturer and Head of Anatomy at Norwich Medical School in the University of East Anglia, whilst continuing his clinical work at NNUH.
Richard’s clinical work covers reconstructive microsurgery, breast reconstruction, complex perineal reconstruction, skin cancer and trauma.
He was a member of BAPRAS Council and was previously Clinical Director of the Plastic Surgery Department and Chairman of the Surgical Division at NNUH. He has taken on the role of Service Director again. Academically he has over 40 publications in peer review journals and is a regular international speaker.
Outside of medicine he can be found playing about in his garden with his grown up tonka toys (tractors, logsplitters, chainsaws etc) or looking for golf balls in the rough – as he is rarely see on the putting green itself!
