Mark Bellamy

Professor of Critical Care, University of Leeds Intensive Care Unit, UK

Mark Bellamy read medicine at St John’s College, Cambridge and subsequently at Charing Cross Hospital Medical School (now part of Imperial College, London). After qualifying he worked in medicine, emergency medicine, anaesthesia and critical care in the South West of England, and in Uppsala, Sweden, before being appointed as Consultant in Intensive Care at St James’s University Hospital, Leeds, in 1993, and Professor of Critical Care in 2004. His interest in transfusion was first sparked by involvement with the liver transplant programme and the management of coagulopathy and major haemorrhage. Mark chaired the hospital transfusion committee from early in his clinical career, and has subsequently served on the National Transfusion Committee, the National Commissioning Group for Blood, and the SHOT Steering Group, which he has chaired since 2017. He has also been President of the Intensive Care Society, served on Council of the Anaesthetic Research Society, the Board of the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine, and held Royal College and University examinership in the UK and internationally. Outside of work, he has a pilot’s licence (and flies his Twin Comanche regularly), enjoys music, skiing, and watching his family grow.
