William Booth

Grand Appeal Ambassador

Who better to join our team of Ambassadors than William Booth; former Matron for children’s intensive care and cardiac services.

William qualified in Manchester and Oxford. Following a commission in the Royal Air Force he worked at the Bristol Children’s Hospital from 1990 until he retired as the Matron for children's intensive care and cardiac services in 2017.

During his NHS career William made exceptional contributions to national standards for the care for critically ill children and bereavement. He was Chair of the Royal College of Nursing, Paediatric Intensive Care Nurse Mangers Community for many years.

For over 20 years, William has worked alongside us and we are delighted to have the support of such a dedicated and passionate children’s healthcare professional. William continues to work with us, in his role as an ambassador in his retirement, both volunteering at events and sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm for the hospital with our supporters. William also volunteers for a children's heart charity caring for infants and children who have undergone heart surgery overseas.
