Umang is Clinical Strategy Director at Babylon, where he spends his time making sure that safe, effective and personalised healthcare is available to everyone, everywhere. He is also an NHS paediatrician and can be found treating children at Frimley Park Hospital on Fridays.
During his medical training, Umang realised that there needed to be more clinicians that understood and actively engaged in health management. In order to bridge the gap between clinicians and managers, he joined the NHS Leadership Academy as a Clinical Fellow in 2012. This set him on a slightly alternative medical career path which included being Head of Clinical Transformation at Aviva UK Health where he was responsible for a series of new initiatives in the model of healthcare delivery. Umang also serves as a trustee of Attend, the UK’s national charity for volunteers.
