On January 10, the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) announced the tragic loss of consultant craniofacial plastic surgeon Mr Niall Kirkpatrick.
Mr Kirkpatrick was cycling when he was fatally hit by a car. Our condolences go to his friends, family and colleagues.
Mr Kirkpatrick worked at the Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust in London where he was a core member of the Northwest London specialist multidisciplinary team for the management of skin cancers and a member of the multidisciplinary team for vascular anomalies. He has also previously written for the Aesthetics journal, alongside consultant plastic surgeon Mr Pericles Foroglou on Treating Permanent Dermal Filler Complications in 2016, and was known as a specialist in managing dermal filler complications.

Consultant plastic and reconstructive surgeon Mr Dalvi Humzah, said, “It was a sad day to hear that Mr Kirkpatrick had
passed away in tragic circumstances. He was a colleague who came through the
ranks with me as senior house officer to consultant during our training.
He was a true gentleman and a gentle giant in the speciality; for me he was one
of the ‘consultant's consultant’ to whom complex and difficult cases would be
dealt with great expertise and empathy. He will be truly missed within the
specialty as well as with friends and family.”
