Making Success Achievable

Step into Practice is a unique venture, developed by surgeon Paul Baguley and management consultant William Howlett.

We exist to provide support and advice to those setting up or expanding their practice. We aim to make our knowledge, expertise and network of contacts accessible so that everyone has the opportunity to build and maintain a successful practice.


Membership gives you access not only to a community of some of the most successful companies in the world, but also to your own community of specialists. As son as you log on you have all the help and assistance you need. At your fingertips, or on the end of a phone.


Each step is designed to give you all the advice and resources you need. It may look daunting at first, but just click on the resources button by the side of each topic and within each step. If you still need help, just click on the “partners that can help” section. Or give us a call.


All of our resources come form our expert partners. We have thought of everything you will need. You can access all our resources anytime and anywhere. Download them to read on the train home, or when you have a spare moment. We guarantee you will read things you didn’t know you needed! All our resources are updated regularly to give you the most up to date information.


Insurance renewal? DBS? CV? All our secure documents are “time dated” and we have a reminder system that alerts no only you and the relevant partner, but us here at Step into Practice also. You can relax knowing that all your important documentation is saved, readily available and renewed. The only finger you have to raise is when the renewals come through and you have to check that it is ok to go ahead.
