Away from work Alastair has been known to cheer on his beloved Magpies or escape for the coast.

Bradley has previously worked as an Osteopath and a Clinical Supervisor where he passed on his clinical knowledge to final year students. By undertaking the HMIP Bradley hopes to develop skills in operations management and change facilitation. When he gets the chance Bradley always takes the opportunity to travel, he hopes to balance his work and study over the course of the placement so he can get away at some point.
