Meet the Team – Robert Bullock

Meet Robert Bullock, member of the HMViP and retired medical consultant

I’m a retired consultant in Intensive Care Medicine, including Home Mechanical Ventilation and Anaesthesia. Until my retirement I worked for Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

What is your interest in HMV?
I have over 35 years experience of home mechanical ventilation as a lead consultant in The North East Assisted Ventilation Service. We have contributed to a number of important publications on the benefits of assisted ventilation in neuromuscular and motor-neurone disease.

When did you join the HMViP?

What do you personally hope to see the group achieve?
I hope to increase awareness and understanding of the benefits, and the limitations, of long-term breathing support.
