The last day.... working

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

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!

  • 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 moved to BW Medical Accountants in 2013 and we are delighted that we have.  Having been in the same business for over 20 years it is important to have a relationship with the accountancy team but most importantly you need to have trust.  We made the decision to move our business to BW Medical Accountants and having worked with the Team especially Tina we are very satisfied.  Tina going through the accounts brought to our attention many things that I was not aware of in the past.  The first years' experience can only be described as excellent.

    Customer service is first and foremost with BW and this shines through as each and every one of them are approachable, helpful and most importantly understand and know the business.  General practice is complex and is going to get more complex in the coming years.  We need Accountants who truly understand our business. We as a practice and as individuals would certainly recommend BW Medical Accountants.

  • 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.
