Peter Brennan

Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeon. Elected RCS Council member, Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust
Peter Brennan is a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon with an interest in head and neck oncology, working in Portsmouth, UK. He has a personal chair in Surgery in recognition of his extensive research and education profile. To date he has over 600 publications including more than 80 on human factors (HF) and patient safety. He is editor of 5 major specialty surgical textbooks and Lead Editor for the recently published Gray’s Surgical Anatomy, bringing Henry Gray’s original book on anatomy for surgeons published in 1858 in to the 21st Century. The book begins with a chapter on minimising error in the operating theatre. Peter is recent past Chairman of the Intercollegiate MRCS Committee, and currently leads MRCS Research Lead, investigating and publishing widely on differential attainment for this important examination. He was elected to the Royal College of Surgeons of England Council in 2020, a first for his specialty. His extensive HF work and unique collaborations with airline pilots, UK National Air Traffic Services (NATS) and more recently the Red Arrows Royal Air Force aerobatic team have resulted in many changes to practice, better team working, reducing hierarchy, patient safety improvements across medical specialties, as well as changes in MRCS delivery internationally. In 2019, Peter was awarded a PhD entitled ‘Applying HF to Improve Patient Safety’ – likely to be the first of its kind in healthcare. He works with national organisations including the Royal Colleges of Surgeons, General Medical Council and HEE to help drive up safety and better working experiences for trainees, consultants and the wider healthcare team.
