Dr Peter Booker
With deep regret the Inquiry announces the death of one of its expert advisors, Dr Peter Booker, retired consultant paediatric anaesthetist.
Peter joined the Inquiry in 2005. During the following years, and especially from 2008 to 2012, he gave enormous assistance in identifying and analysing the issues which we have to address. He had extensive knowledge of and experience in paediatric anaesthesia as befitted someone who was for eleven years an external examiner for the Royal College of Anaesthetists. However his contribution went far beyond his specialist field. He used his experience to give us valuable insights into many other areas such as the way in which consultants engaged with each other, how they engaged with families and how postgraduate education developed through the years.
While he worked closely with his fellow advisors he also gave his time generously to the Inquiry team who enjoyed his succinct and direct responses to their queries.
Peter will be sadly missed by his fellow advisors and by everyone in the Inquiry with whom he shared his time and expertise. We extend our sympathy to his wife Holly, their children and his entire family circle.
