Brian remeberence page

Brian Turner

This memorial page is in memory of our friend and colleague Brian Turner.

Brian sadly passed away unexpectedly and suddenly on 3rd December 2020 at the age of 55 years.

Brian was the PACS Manager at Barts Health NHS Trust.  He had been part of the Barts Health Imaging family for 32 years, starting as a radiography student at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, then working in the trust as a radiographer, superintendent and site lead for many years before becoming PACS Manager.

His passion for his work was unbounded and he worked tirelessly until the end for the good of patients, his colleagues and the trust.

He will be truly missed by so many friends and colleagues who have had the privilege to know him.

Brian is survived by his wife Karen, son Evan, his parents, siblings and wider family.   Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family.

Karen and Evan, I feel for you both at this traumatic time and hope that you are both strong. What to say about a character such as Brian? His relaxed, happy go lucky, chirpy ways often disguised the deeply caring, intelligent, hard working chap underneath. The presence of Brian in the department at Bart’s …

I met Brian in 1994 as a newly qualified radiographer. He was welcoming and knowledgeable and taught me an enormous amount. He later became a friend. Brian was an old school gentleman and one of the kindest people I have ever met. His consideration for others was immense. He was tremendously funny and fascinating …

Dear Karen, Evan and Family, it was with shock and great sadness that I learnt of Brian’s passing. My first recollection of Brian was at an NHS London meeting with BT many years ago. I think we were all quite taken aback by the tenacity of his interrogation of BT but secretly had no …

It’s 26 years since I first came across Brian. My first week at Barts as a newly qualified radiographer, he took great glee in taking my dreadful abdomen x-ray out of the processor and waving it around in front of John Harwood, the Radiology manager at the time! Strangely, I thought I should become …

Dear Brian’s family and friends. So sad to hear the news, we had some great times debating (arguing) over what PACS and RIS system to use, Brian always had the department and patient at his forefront even if this didn’t align to management!  Brian was a genuinely unique radiographer and he will be sorely …
