Bill studied in Cambridge and London, before training as a general practitioner in Bath and pursuing a parallel career in postgraduate medical education.

He was previously Director of GP Education in Health Education South West, chair of COGPED and co-chair of the medical selection quality and standards group for the UK.

Bill is the current UK lead postgraduate dean for the specialities of trauma and orthopaedics, general surgery and pre-hospital emergency medicine. He is the HEE dean for integrated academic and clinical training for doctors and dentists in partnership with NIHR and the English medical schools.

Bill holds visiting chairs of medical education at Bristol, East Anglia and Anglia Ruskin universities and is a fellow, tutor and member of council at Hughes Hall in the University of Cambridge. He has research interests in high-stakes assessment, medical trainee recruitment and selection.

He was fortunate to be deployed as clinical lead for a large Ebola treatment centre in Sierra Leone during the recent pandemic. He has a continued interest in global health and works closely with the HEE’s Global Health Exchange and various international partners.

Outside of work Bill remains a very keen but ageing motorcyclist. He usually also enjoys chasing around after his various children and stepdaughter.
