Richard Page

Richard was dismissed as a magistrate and blocked from returning to an NHS role after he expressed his belief that children do best with a mum and a dad.


Richard served as a magistrate in Kent for 15 years. He also served as a non-executive director of an NHS Trust.

Then, whilst deliberating on an adoption case with two other magistrates behind closed doors, Richard expressed his belief that a child’s best interests are served by being placed with a mother and a father, wherever possible.

After telling his story and publicly repeating his view, Richard was removed from the magistracy and blocked from returning to his role at the NHS Trust.

Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, Richard is now challenging the NHS Trust, the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice over their decisions.
