Barry started his own practice in 1986 and moved to the current premises in 1990. Married in 1985, to Marian, they have 5 children over a period of 13 years, having both lived in the local area all their lives. Grandchildren now starting to arrive with the first being Erin, the apple of his eye.
He is the oldest member of the team, (although Helen is quite close despite her protestations to the contrary!) and commenced as a sole practitioner from his house, with no team members back in 1986.
Barry enjoys all sports, mostly watching, as his physique displays, and spends most of his leisure time with the family.
