About Richard

I was born in the United Kingdom and have been living and working in Australia since 2003. 

I qualified in medicine at St Mary's Hospital Medical School in London in 1988. I also obtained a Doctorate in Medicine from the University of London in 1998.

I trained in psychiatry at St Mary's Hospital, St Charles Hospital, Northwick Park Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London. 

I became a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in the UK in 1993, and a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists in 2003, where I am also a member of the Faculty for Psychiatry of Old Age. 

I have held consultant psychiatrist positions at University College London Hospitals NHS Trust, Barwon Health, Geelong, Southwest Healthcare, Warrnambool and at The Geelong Clinic. 

I have been a consultant psychiatrist since 1998. I established in 2017 in response to the shortage of psychiatrists in regional and rural areas of Australia. I have been published widely with more than 80 journal articles and book chapters on psychiatry. 

I hold an academic position as Affiliate Professor at Deakin University in the medical school and teach psychiatry to medical students. I am also an occasional examiner and assessor for the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists.


Professor Harvey may be available to provide expert opinion in certain civil medico-legal matters. He does not provide independent medical examinations, and is unable to assit with family court matters.
