The death of Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield

  • News

We have sadly learned of the death of Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield.

Dr Peatfield was a trustee of Thyroid UK in the early days and without him, Thyroid UK would not be where we are today.

He was a very lovely, kind and generous man who truly cared about his patients and who, in our opinion, saved a lot of lives and gave a quality of life back to many, many people who saw him.

His books are his legacy. They help thyroid patients understand the condition and how to become well and so many patients in the future will be helped by reading them.

We really do wish there were more doctors like him today.

Thyroid UK would like to send our deepest condolences to his family. He was a great man and will be remembered by many thyroid patients with gratitude.
