The Health-Tech Podcast with Dr James Somauroo

Had a great conversation with Dr James Somauroo on his podcast. Health-Tech Podcast. James and I were in Anaesthetic training in the same North Wales NHS trust about 5 years ago. James has had an inspirational career path to date, as detailed in his biography from his site.

James is the founder of somX: the healthtech agency and supports the best healthtech companies in the world. He covers healthtech for Forbes as a contributor and also hosts The Health-Tech Podcast, which has listeners in >100 countries. He is an anaesthetics and ICU doctor by training, has held roles in leadership, management and innovation at NHS England, Health Education England and the British Medical Journal and previously directed two healthtech accelerators; DigitalHealth.London, which provided startups with market access to the NHS, saving £48M for the UK health service and HS., which built, scaled and invested in deep technology companies. He has degrees in medicine, biomedical sciences and education and is a guest lecturer on healthtech innovation and entrepreneurship at academic institutions around the world.

James kindly invited me on his Health-Tech Podcast. We discussed The Rafferty Distraction Headset and its uses in Anaesthesia. Also we talked about our experiences in securing funding and innovation in health. The Podcast will be out soon.

Many thanks James.
