This year’s Awards Evening was an awe-inspiring event. A staggering number of awards were given out by our chair of governors Dr Deborah Park and our honoured guest Dr Daniel Perry, Beacon’s Head Boy from 1997.
In his own words, this is what Dr Perry has been up to since leaving Barr Beacon:
“I left Barr Beacon to study at Liverpool Medical School, with a short exchange to the university of San Diego in California. I graduated in Medicine in 2003 and worked in hospitals around Liverpool, initially spending time in the emergency departments, and later moving into surgery. I went back to university in 2009 to do a PhD in rare hip diseases in children. Following this I moved to Warwick University as a surgeon and university lecturer. I then moved to be a trauma and orthopaedic surgeon at SickKids hospital in Toronto in Canada, which is one of the biggest children’s hospitals in the world. I then moved back to Liverpool as a consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon in 2015 at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, where I lead research into children’s orthopaedic surgery. My research has continued to grow, and I now lead a national group of over 300 surgeons researching children’s injuries and hip diseases. I have previously been awarded the title of Hunterian Professor by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and have most recently been appointed as an Associate Professor of Trauma Surgery at the University of Oxford. I continue to love working as a busy orthopaedic trauma surgeon at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool, and have a growing family (with child number two been born in September, and a GP wife – Sarah). Mum and Dad still live on Pheasey, and I love coming home.”
