About Annie Barr MBE
Annie left school at 16 years with one GCSE. She decided to pursue a career in nursing and then went to university aged 30! She now has 3 degrees! Now with over 40 years experience in the health service (NHS) and starting her own business, through personal experience of friends, relatives and her own mum dying in 2018 from a B12 deficiency, Annie started to research and look at alternative ways of taking/delivering vitamins.
It became clear that there was a long history of Pernicious Anaemia throughout the family. Motivated by this, the idea of transdermal vitamin patches was born. Within a few weeks of having the idea through many business contacts Annie commissioned and developed the patch and had the first pack in her hand within 4 weeks. The patches were a great success with family and friends who felt an immediate improvement.
Alongside the Vitamin patches Annie has developed training courses to educate others in Vitamin deficiencies. These can be found on https://anniebarr.com and below on eventbrite.
In June 2018 Annie was awarded the MBE for her services to international healthcare by the Queen at Buckingham Palace. This was and is a great honour.
Annie is the author of the Royal College of General Practitioner, Advanced Nurse Practitioner Competencies which were published nationally. Annie was the RCGP board member for nursing in the North East and was the RCGP representative on the 5 year forward view for General Practice in 2018.
In Nov 2021 Annie won an award for Most Inspiring Female Business Leader Global by the Chamber of Commerce. This is humbling and we are so proud of her sheer tenacity, courage and achievements.
Annie is passionate about health and wellness and works with colleagues throughout the UK in making a difference to client care.
In 2017, Annie was funded by Goldman Sachs to undertake their small business programme and graduated at Oxford University.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
My son has been on b12 patches for about five weeks now and the change in him is amazing the first week of being on them I noticed a difference, the colour in his face and skin was back to a lovely human colour he wasn’t pale and the underneath of his eyes were not purple anymore. The second week he started sleeping full night’s which is normally a nightmare for him as he is severely autistic and finds it difficult to sleep. He’s not as tired or moody with the patches which is having a good effect on his behaviour as he’s not as challenging at times. It’s amazing what these patches have done for him as every parent knows it’s quite hard to keep up with there vitamin intake especially for a special needs child but I would highly recommend these.
