Current post

I maintain an interest in Intensive Care as a consultant in Wolverhampton where we have a 7 bedded ITU and will soon be opening a 12 bedded HDU. I now spend much more time as an anaesthetist in theatre. I avoid when I can the ridiculous pressures placed upon medical staff by relatives of ITU patients, and of course drug representatives.

Graham BeckFamily

I am married to Davina, a children’s nurse, whom I met in Leeds in 1978. We have two children Christopher (14) and Lizzie (12).


In my spare time I run a small computer company, managing a web site and providing database solutions to Operating Theatres and Intensive Care Units. I collect speeding tickets. Together with a receding hairline I have become a sad gadget freak. I still play the guitar, singing along appallingly.
