Professional background

Richard Perry did his medical training in Oxford and his PhD in Cambridge, before completing Specialist Training in Neurology on the South London SpR rotation.  He worked briefly as a locum consultant at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, where he took the lead on setting up the stroke thrombolysis service and took the role of Clinical Lead for Hyperacute Stroke within the North West London Stroke Network.  Shortly after moving to UCLH he became Clinical Lead for the Hyperacute Stroke Unit (HASU), overseeing its early development.  Once the Unit was up and running he moved onto the post of Clinical Lead for Hyperacute Research, having led UCLH's successful bid to become an NIHR Hyperacute Stroke Research Centre.  Currently his main professional focus is on developing safe and clear protocols for excellence in hyperacute stroke care on the HASU, and on embedding research trials into those protocols so that we can continue to develop an evidence base for the future.

Research interests

Incorporation of national and international clinical research trials into the daily practice of the Hyperacute Stroke Unit.  Visual processing in the human brain.
