Dr Nick Rhead

I grew up in rural Derbyshire and moved to Liverpool to study medicine in 2005 where I helped establish Streetdoctors. I completed my studies in 2011 and worked in hospitals in North Liverpool and St Helen’s before moving to work in Melbourne, Australia. I’m currently living down under and work in Emergency Medicine, Rural Emergency Medicine and Correctional Health.

Whilst I love the challenges of my job, everyday brings a reminder that youth violence continues to impact individuals, families and society as a whole and that we can and should always do more to stop it. Starting Streetdoctors whilst studying medicine taught me that with a bit of dedication, a great idea and enthusiasm you can make a big difference – it’s easier and more accessible than people believe!

In the future I hope to complete my Emergency Medicine training and continue trying to help end youth violence.
