Umang is a NHS Paediatrician, he 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. So, to help be someone 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 path which included being Head of Clinical Transformation at Aviva UK where he was responsible for a series of new initiatives in the model of healthcare delivery.
