Dr Beale received his Medical degree from St Bartholomew's Hospital, London, in 1984. He undertook his General Professional Training in Anaesthetics at Guy's Hospital, London and was accordingly admitted to the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists in 1990.

Having registered as a specialist in anaesthetics and intensive care, he held the posts of Clinical Research Fellow and Honorary Senior Registrar in Intensive Care at Guy's Hospital, London, until 1992 when he embarked on his Higher Professional Training in Anaesthesia at the Royal London Hospital. He became a consultant in Intensive Care at Guy's and St. Thomas Hospital Trust in 1995, becoming Head of Service for Adult Intensive Care Unit in 2000. In March 2005 he was made Head of Perioperative, Critical Care and Pain Services (now Clinical Director) across the Trust and continues to hold this post.

He has acted as principle investigator in a large number of multicentre research studies in the fields of sepsis, ARDS and clinical nutrition. He maintains up to date training in ICH GCP and the EU Clinical Trials Directive.
