Dr Richard Berman FRCP MRCGP

Consultant in palliative medicine and honorary senior lecturer

Dr Berman graduated in medicine at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School (University of London) in 1996. He initially trained as a GP and became a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP) in 2001. However, as a GP he developed a real interest in palliative and supportive care, so left general practice and enrolled on a specialist training programme for palliative medicine in 2002 (at the North West Deanery in Manchester, which oversees postgraduate medical education).

He now works as Consultant in Palliative Medicine and Honorary Senior Lecturer at The Christie. His role involves management of pain and symptom control in cancer patients, to help them through treatment, as well as caring for patients with advanced disease and those towards the end of life.
