Bernard Francisco Ribeiro, Baron Ribeiro, CBE, FRCS, retired Consultant General Surgeon with a special interest in urology and colorectal surgery and Life Peer in the House of Lords, will be joining Professor Roger Kirby, RSM President, for a conversation about his early years and surgical career, how he pioneered the use of keyhole surgery in his hospital, developing training and teaching standards for surgeons nationally, and his views on the back-log of NHS patients and quality of care due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
After qualifying at the Middlesex Hospital in 1967, Bernard Ribeiro embarked on his career in surgery. In 1979 he became a Consultant General Surgeon with a special interest in urology and colorectal surgery to Basildon Hospital, Essex. There he introduced the use of minimally invasive surgery to the Hospital and developed an advanced Laparoscopic Unit.
He was an examiner in Surgery for the Royal College of Surgeons and to the Universities of London, Oxford and Brighton. His interest in undergraduate teaching and examination contributed to the Trust achieving University status in 2002.
In 2004 he was awarded the CBE for services to medicine. In 2009 he was appointed Knight Bachelor in the Queen’s New Year Honour’s List and in December 2010 he was appointed The Lord Ribeiro of Achimota in the Republic of Ghana and of Ovington in the County of Hampshire.
