Chief Operating Officer, Beacon Medical Group
Beacon is a national rapid test site for Primary Care Home – an NHS England and National Association of Primary Care initiative supporting practices to take on leadership and control for the broader health and care, health and wellbeing system in their area. We’ve taken that opportunity to get a really clear idea of the needs of our population, to blur the boundaries between different providers and to encourage more ownership and engagement from patients in their own care.
For some time, we’ve seen that technology is a huge enabler in that agenda and have been working with local, regional and national players to create a med tech buzz in the far south west. We’ve hosted TEDMEDLive for 2 years running and established a social movement – Hipster which brings technologists together to solve big health problems.
