Meet The Peridot Curis Team

Bill Watson

Co- Founder & Director


Bill worked in the Public Sector for 22 years prior to launching Insequa Ltd, and more recently Peridot Curis.  He started his career as a nurse in the NHS, working in orthopaedics and trauma (wards, theatres, ITU) as well as, briefly, acute medicine.

Bill then moved into an academic role where he spent 15 years undertaking and leading on programmes of applied research in close collaboration with the NHS.  This involved asking research questions and applying research methodologies to issues of organisational and service development.

During the late 90’s, Bill worked in association with McMaster University in Canada and a network of UK-based researchers on developing whole-system, inter-agency programmes of service planning and delivery.  He also lead on service development projects in the areas of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Diabetes and Cancer, working with hospital Trusts, PCTs and Local Authorities.

Within his academic career, Bill authored several academic reports and peer-reviewed papers, and reviewed for academic journals and the Government’s Service Development and Organisation research funding stream.
