Dr Richard Pile was raised a proud, slightly damp, mancunian. He then trained in Nottingham and Oxfordshire before becoming a GP partner in St Albans. He has a diploma in cardiology and believes that everyone can and should practise Lifestyle Medicine, whether young or old, doctor or patient.
Richard has seen a lot of changes in over twenty years working for the NHS. He is fascinated by what it means to truly feel well and is passionate about helping people to achieve this as individuals and as a community. He believes too much medicine can be harmful for us and we all need the right dose of sleep, movement, food, relaxation, connections and purpose in life.
Richard lives in St Albans and is married with four children and a very large dog. He enjoys cycling, running, archery, gaming, following the fortunes of Manchester United…and finding an excuse to combine any or all of these activities whilst socialising with friends and family, preferably in his local pub.
Living Life Better means to me: Feeling well, Connecting with others, Making a difference
