    In this week’s episode we meet John, who shares his transition from the military into healthcare. We discuss his first impressions of the NHS, his role as Head of Quality Improvement for London and why he believes every healthcare professional has so much more to offer outside their job description. We delve into the skill-sets many clinicians possess that can be channeled into improving healthcare and why we need to break the power imbalance of skill-exchange currently siloed and limited to consultants and senior managers.  


    Tune in to hear why he is so passionate about building an accessible centralized black book of contacts for everyone irrespective of grade or experience. We spend time discussing why Hexitime is crucial as a platform to enable the exchange of skills and ideas to improve healthcare.   


    John is the co-founder of the award-winning skill exchange and timebank, Hexitime.com and the Head of Quality Improvement for London in the UK NHS. He is committed and focused on empowering people and service users to innovate and improve health and care services, and in recent years has become a social enterprise entrepreneur to realise this passion. John has delivered change programmes at a national, regional and provider level in the NHS and wider public sector.

Superb podcast

I love it lads! Great content

Saumiyaaa K ,

One of the funniest and most informative podcasts

Both of the docs have great personalities with a lot of wisdom to offer, and they do this in a light hearted fashion which is very enjoyable to listen to. I have only discovered these podcasts recently, and I have been obsessed. There are so many things that I am finding out through these podcasts that I have never been taught at med school. You can tell that they have put a lot of thought and time into creating their content because each episode is so unique and interesting.

Keep going guys! <3
