The prequel

I have had many internal debates about whether I should share the journey that let to my decision to leave clinical medicine and start our own social enterprise, or jump straight into the story at the point BYS was conceived. Would anyone be interested/care?

On reflection, I realised I find huge personal value in hearing the stories of others so decided to indulge my inner narcissist and go for it. I hope this resonates with those who have also struggled to pave their own way through what can sometimes feel like a rather rigid landscape.

I would love to hear you own experiences – get in touch on any of our social media channels @beyondyourstethoscope or email
