Peter Dyer OBE

We are delighted to share the news that OL Peter Dyer (68-75) has been awarded an OBE in the King’s 2024 Birthday Honours’ list for not only his years of dedicated service to dentistry and medicine but for the amazing personal contributions that he has also made to communities within the Lancaster and Silverdale area.

Peter left LRGS in 1975 to study dentistry at the Royal Dental Hospital in London and subsequently undertook a medical degree at University College Hospital, London. He holds fellowships from the surgical colleges in Edinburgh and Dublin.

Peter’s special interest is in facial anomalies and trauma surgery, and he is the published author of The Handbook of Immediate Care (1995) and has contributed to numerous textbooks on trauma. Peter currently delivers lectures on oral diseases and oral surgery to both undergraduates and postgraduate students at the University of Central Lancashire whilst continuing to work within the NHS to oversee the appraisal and revalidation of doctors within the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust.

In addition to his incredible work within the NHS and at UCLAN, Peter works tirelessly to benefit all those living in the Silverdale and Lancaster communities, including LRGS. Peter’s lifelong support for school continues, and we are incredibly grateful to him for his support and hard work as one of our current School Trustees. It is thanks to Peter’s hard work that the school has defibrillators on site, which are available to be used by the wider community. Peter is extremely generous with his time and knowledge and often returns to school to speak to current pupils and works hard as an OL Club committee member with other members of the committee to continue to provide help and support to school.

We are incredibly grateful to Peter for his hard work and support and are thrilled that his dedication and achievements have been recognised formally.
