A final note from Andrew Robson as he retires. A talented accountant and a true gent. Andrew shared this with BW staff, it was such a lovely note we wanted to share with you. We knew Andrew's retirement plans when he joined BW, he's been a key member of our team and we are grateful for the contribution he's made to our journey. Thank you x

In a nutshell

1

it struck me that I was passing by the very offices in Milburn House where I took my first tentative steps in bean counting in 1974

2

Good food and excellent company were the ingredients that made a perfect bake that evening

3

Now, I’m off for a bike ride, then tai chi class, followed by choir practice, must book the cheviot huts, a spot of swimming (indoors)

It has been a strange week, with fits and starts of tasks that would soon be no longer mine to complete but that was fine because I was ready to lay to rest that thing called work.

Was I ready to say farewell to my BW friends – not really –so it was with some melancholy that I engaged with you this last week.

Friday came, at last, and the morning passed with some trepidation as “presentation time” loomed. Yes I had some nerves, I admit, as I took the long walk down the stairs to the boardroom, but warm words and spirits dissipated those quickly.

Such thoughtful gifts from one and all. Many, many thanks.

And so to the evening.

As I walked down Dean Street towards Babucho’s it struck me that I was passing by the very offices in Milburn House where I took my first tentative steps in bean counting in 1974 and at the bottom of the street was The Guildhall where my bean counting skills were sorely tested. What an uncannily apt place to end my last working day.

Good food and excellent company were the ingredients that made a perfect bake that evening. I feel very thankful to have spent the last three years of my career and the last day with such good people.

So best wishes for the future to you all.

Now, I’m off for a bike ride, then tai chi class, followed by choir practice, must book the cheviot huts, a spot of swimming (indoors), a saxophone lesson oh and of course a touch of baking – where did I find the time to work!

  • BW Medical Accountants have a good working knowledge of General Practice and are keenly aware of the challenges Practices face within the changing environment of the NHS.  Benfield Park have been very impressed by the way BW Medical continue to deliver the range of services they provide from Accounts to Tax and NHS Pension advice. 

    We have found Practice consultation and engagement from BW Medical specifically helpful to shape the future of the Practice.

  • We had no hesitation in moving to BW Medical Accountants.  For any business your accountant is integral, and for us one of the most important factors to this relationship is to have a personal and trusting approach, which BW have undoubtedly achieved. 

    The service we receive and the interest they show in our practice assures us that they have a genuine interest in us and commitment to us.  More importantly they are always helpful and polite to answer even the dumbest of questions!  They give us confidence and reassurance knowing that they are always very up-to-date with all the numerous changes within general practice and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to other practices seeking a professional and personal accountancy service.

  • We changed to BW Medical Accountants and I would say we have just had the most transparent and understandable end of year meeting and the best planning advice I have ever had in 16 years of practice.
