Motivation & Inspiration
What motivated you to join Medbelle and the healthcare industry in general?
"I am really passionate about delivering personal and sustainable healthcare. I joined Medbelle because here I found a passionate group of individuals who share my resolve in wanting to deliver value-based healthcare and a patient-centric experience. At Medbelle, we are proving these two things don’t have to be mutually exclusive and as a result, we are really transforming healthcare delivery."
Best memory with a patient or in the industry
"The waiting list for cataract surgery is amongst the longest and regrettably, the backlog continues to grow. At Medbelle, we have reimagined the way we can deliver cataract surgery. By leveraging the expertise of opticians, we have been able to compress costs, secure one of the UK’s leading Moorfields trained eye surgeons and a world-class facility in the Harley St. enclave, all for an ultra-competitive price. Launching this entirely new service, where we have been able to deliver better care, a better experience and a better price, is truly one of my fondest memories."
If there was one thing you wish everyone knew.
"At Medbelle, we are working hard to focus on value-based healthcare. This means intervention (including surgery) might not necessarily be the first or best option. Our partner surgeons are committed to our resolve on focusing on what is best for our patients rather than focusing on volume."
One piece of advice you would give patients looking into ophthalmic /ortho surgery.
