Peter McCulloch

Professor of Surgical Science and Practice

Peter's early research work was on cancer metastasis and gastrectomy technique. However, he has since become interested in patient safety and founded the QRSTU research group which is dedicated to studies of quality and safety interventions in surgery.

Current work is funded by a Programme Grant from the NIHR, and involves a synthesis of aspects of the LEAN and CRM interventions to optimise safety performance in surgery.

Peter has advised and participated in the development of the NHS Institute programme "the productive operating theatre" and the Health Foundation sponsored project on Safer Theatre Teams. Peter is actively involved in assisting the Clinical Human Factors Group in their work to improve surgical safety in the UK.

Surgical Grand Rounds

As part of the Surgical Grand Rounds Lecture Series, Professor Peter McCulloch and Dr Lauren Morgan talk about investigating serious surgical incidents and how human factors science can help us.
