About me

Location Dorchester, Dorset, United Kingdom
Introduction I live and work in Dorchester, a beautiful town in Dorset not far from the south coast. I’m a Senior Health Programme Advisor within the team that commissions drug and alcohol treatment services through Public Health Dorset, which operates across Bournemouth, Poole and rural Dorset. I'm also a Visiting Fellow in the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences at Bournemouth University. How did I get here? Well I did a PhD, also at Bournemouth University, looking at ‘binge’ drinking in Bournemouth and thinking about how class and gender are part of how people understand their own and other people’s drinking. (Search on eprints.bournemouth.ac.uk) After finishing the PhD I moved to London for a couple of years and worked for the Russell Group of universities, dealing most closely with issues of community engagement, widening participation and, unexpectedly, immigration. When an opportunity came up to head back down to Dorset and work on drug and alcohol issues, I grabbed it with both hands. I'm on Twitter: @WilliamHaydock
