is a GP who moved into Public Health Medicine, but on the way has worked at every level of commissioning in the NHS. Throw in his MBA, his Visiting Professorship at Bournemouth University and the fact he is CEO and Medical Director of Spoonful of Sugar, a UCL spin-out company focused on behavioural change consultancy which was winner of both Small Consultancy and Specialist Consultancy in the 2015 Communiqué Awards; and you can see why it might be worth sharing in some of his experience.
Spaces are limited, free and for HCA members only. So book quickly…
Please note, we may have to limit the number of individuals attending from any one organisation if this event becomes oversubscribed.
