Richard Steele


I am a clinical immunologist working in both Public and Private practice; the latter based at Riddiford Medical. As a Consultant Immunologist and Pathologist, I have a long experience in laboratory services both here in NZ and in Australia, and in all aspects of clinical immunology and immunopathology, including: allergy, autoimmune diseases, primary immunodeficiency and HIV. I have a particular interest in autoimmune disease and quality assurance.

Previously the New Zealand Vice President of the College of Pathologists Australasia, I am currently the Chair of the New Zealand Clinical Immunology and Allergy Group and a member of the Medical Advisory Committee for IANZ. I am an examiner for the RCPA, a senior lecturer with the University of Otago and Adjunct Professor at Victoria University Wellington. I am not the pathologist “Dick” Steele, formerly from Wellington, who died in 2020. I am currently the only doctor at Riddiford Medical who regularly has clinics on a Saturday.
