Barry Ford BSc MCSP - Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist and Founder of LRS
Barry qualified as a Physiotherapist in 2004 from Hertfordshire University. He has over 16 years experience working within a wide range of inpatient and community based Physiotherapy positions in the NHS and private sectors. During the last 10 years Barry has specialised within the field of acute / chronic respiratory care, and neurological rehabilitation.
In April 2020 Barry set up London Respiratory Specialists Ltd, after witnessing the challenges patients experienced trying to access community respiratory care and rehabilitation when leaving hospital. Barry believes that patients should have access to the same specialist care when they return home, supporting the recovery period and reducing the risk of future hospital admissions.
Barry also currently works for the UK's largest private hospital as a Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist. He provides oversight and leadership for the inpatient respiratory and intensive care services. Barry's clinical interests include complex airway clearance, sleep and non-invasive ventilation, tracheostomy care and rehabilitation after critical illness.
