Peter Barry Consultant - Paediatric Intensivist & Honorary Senior Lecturer

Peter Barry

I have trained in paediatrics since full GMC registration in 1985, including Fellowships in Melbourne, Australia, and Vancouver, Canada; I have been on the specialist register in paediatrics since 1998, when I took up my consultant post in Leicester. I am registered with the RCPCH for continuous professional development and undergo regular appraisal. I was issued with a licence to practice following successful revalidation with the GMC in 2013.

My interests are in Paediatric Intensive Care, Altitude related illness, and Inhalational drug delivery.

I have been an active researcher, obtaining my PhD in 1999. Since 2006 my work has been mainly clinically based. I have helped to edit leading books in Paediatric Critical Care, including the Oxford Specialist Handbook, which won the BMJ ‘Paediatric Book of the Year’ in 2010. I have written  over 60 peer-reviewed papers and review articles in the fields of paediatric intensive care, inhalational drug delivery and high altitude medicine.

Outside of work I play soccer badly and ski with more determination than skill, but have an enjoyable time doing both. I am lucky to live with a beautiful wife, two teenagers, two cats, a guinea pig and three hens (was six before Mr Fox visited...)
