Bill originally failed to get into medicine and, instead, became an Army Officer at 18 years old. Some 10 years later he decided that he actually really wanted to be a doctor and retrained. Bill did his Foundation Programme at South Tees NHS Foundation Trust where he setup a Foundation Induction Leadership and Management training package and completed the PGCert MedEd. As a second year Foundation doctor, Bill developed the Foundation Leadership and Management (FLM) course and, with South Tees and Always Consult, adapted it into a clinically-focused Level 3 Standard Apprenticeship, the first of its kind in the UK. Bill has presented his projects nationally and won several prizes including Trainees in the Association for the Study of Medical Education (TASME) Young Educator of The Year Award. Bill is the Head of Clinical Leadership at Always Consult. He is passionate for inclusion of clinical leadership and management within the medical training pathway to ensure doctors are prepared for their roles and strives to ingrain this into the clinical workplace.
