Professor Barrie Price was born in Birmingham and educated at Central Grammar School for Boys, Birmingham. His medical training was undertaken at Guys Hospital in London, where he graduated in 1977. After progressing to his first surgical trainee job at the Isle of Thanet Hospital in Margate, he moved on to a registrar rotation in Newcastle-upon-Tyne where he studied for, and successfully passed, his exams to become a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Edinburgh.

Later given the opportunity to spend a year living in New York City, he worked at Downstate Medical Center, where his research led to a Master of Surgery Thesis. On returning to England, he completed his Newcastle rotation in Cardiothoracic Surgery, before his next post as a registrar in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire where he spent eighteen months.

Professor Barrie Price joined the Royal Army Medical Corps in 1985 and received further training, as a Senior Registrar, at the Queen Elizabeth in Woolwich, Kent, and Canterbury Hospital and later St Bartholomew’s Hospital London, where he was appointed Consultant in 1990 and where further research resulted in a Doctor of Medicine Thesis. Professor Barrie Price also served in Berlin, Cyprus, Northern Ireland, Macedonia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Kosovo, the Falkland Islands, and Kuwait, as well as units in the UK. His final posting was at the Ministry of Defence Hospital Unit, at Frimley Park Hospital, where he held a substantive Consultant Vascular Surgeon post and an Honorary Consultant position in the NHS.

Following a six-month sabbatical at the Royal Melbourne Hospital in Australia, Professor Barrie Price left the Services in 2001 to take up a full-time independent practice. He became one of the first Consultants to join The Whiteley Clinic and has, since then, specialized completely in venous surgery, adopting The Whiteley Protocol® and having given up all other areas of vascular work over time.

Prof. Price is married with two daughters and two sons. Prof. Price is a passionate football supporter and a long-suffering follower of Birmingham City. His other interests include drawing and painting, listening to classical music, and reading.

    Dr Barrie Price at The Whiteley Clinic is excellent. He fully informed me of all the procedures. I felt comfortable during the operations. The follow ups were thorough . I have recommended Dr Price to several friends since. His knowledge skill, care and clarity made me feel I was in the best hands.

    Professor Barry Price at the Whitley clinic treated my leg Ulcers, which had just got worse with the outdated treatment of pressure bandaging provided by the GP.
    Prof Price was absolutely fantastic, he treated me with dignity and respect and took time to investigate the problem.
    After extensive scanning he explained all the treatment options very clearly. During the procedure he took the time to make me comfortable and as pain free as possible.
    The results have been amazing the ulcer began to dry up within a few days.

    In my recent appointment Prof. Price was extremely thorough in his explanations and examination. I felt like he was engaging with me as an individual and that I wasn’t just another punter coming through his door. Whilst he obviously has to endorse his company’s procedures, I felt that he was genuinely committed to this process and that it would give the required results as painlessly and permanently as possible.
    Prof. Price inspired the confidence that I was in good hands.

    Professor Price made me feel at ease straight away, explained everything in the simplest way he could to me. He made me laugh too. I will highly recommend the whole clinic. They all were really lovely. I will look forward to getting my treatment done.
