William Bird

Advisory board

Intelligent Health

William is a family GP who started to get his patients more active by setting up the first Health Walk scheme in April 1996. This led to him creating the Green Gym one year later as he realised that companionship and contact with nature were major driving forces in keeping people active.

His passion has led him to be a strategic health advisor to Natural England and set up health forecasts for the Met Office. Whilst CEO of Intelligent Health, William still enjoys being a GP and manages to find some thinking time when running in green space.
