RIP: Dr Richard Morgan

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Dr Richard Morgan. Dr Richard Morgan was a truly dedicated and well respected adult physician who was a long-standing member of the SRHSB & SHINE. He established and led a very effective multi-disciplinary spina bifida clinic at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital in London, which became increasingly recognised as a national referral centre for adults with spina bifida. For many years this important one stop assessment clinic has been much appreciated by patients travelling from many parts of the country and I am sure Dr Morgan will be hugely missed by all his colleagues and spina bifida patients.    We pass our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
