Dr William Dawson is from the OneMedicalGroup, where he is the Chief Medical Officer and the Deputy Chief Executive Officer. Working in North Leeds, he is also a working GP and involved in Primary Care Networks. As a father of two, he loves cooking going to the cinema and learning to paint.

Will joins me today to talk about wellbeing, compassion and leadership. With his experience of growing and implementing a culture at OneMedicalGroup, he shares the clear vision and mission that is driving their behaviours. As a compassionate leader himself, we talk about the importance of wellbeing and why it’s personally so important to him. Will offers leadership advice on how you can be kind to yourself and learn from your mistakes.
