solving problems
Bill Boa

Bill is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. Following his degree in English Literature and Language he joined Ernst and Whinney in London as a trainee. Bill qualified with Ernst & Whinney and worked in a range of services including audit, mergers and acquisitions, corporate recovery and the private healthcare sector.

Bill joined the NHS in 1991 and at the age of 27 became Director of Finance at his first NHS Trust. Bill worked in the NHS until 2012 and in that time worked as an Executive in Community Trusts, Mental Health Trusts, Acute Trusts, Primary Care Trusts and Foundation Trusts and also worked as Deputy in the South West Strategic Health Authority.

Bill was increasingly asked to go to organisations that faced particular financial and operational difficulties and found that he could genuinely help and that he enjoyed this sort of high impact work.

In 2012 Bill made the conscious decision to leave the NHS and see if this kind of work could be captured in a service offering to the NHS. He has been surprised and delighted by the demand and also the demand from unexpected private sector and overseas markets. The ability to see many organisations facing often unique issues and sometimes similar issues has undoubtedly improved Bill’s skills and experience in this area.

Bill and Caroline have lived in Dorset for 16 years having moved from London with their children.

Bill is a Trustee of Arts & Health South West a role he agreed to volunteer for when he left the NHS. He acts as Treasurer for this remarkable Charity.
