Bernard looks after a few of the “back room” duties of the West of England AHSN; primarily the finances, contracts and the liaison with our suppliers.
Bernard worked as a Chartered Public Finance Accountant around the NHS since 1984 when he started work in London. He subsequently moved to Bristol; joining the AHSN in late 2014. He has a wider interest in health economics and recently gained a PhD in health sciences. He is also a Director of North Bristol SusCom – a company that aims to minimise single car occupancy commuting in North Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
“I love working here and seeing the development of the original ideas and their evolution through to being utilised across the NHS. It takes people from all backgrounds, skills and jobs to get the ideas to come home to roost, but seeing the output and the benefits to the whole community makes all the effort worthwhile.”
