Dr Asiya Yunus - Senior Clinical Quality Lead at Healthy London Partnership
Asiya completed a Leadership (Darzi) Fellowship at the Kings Fund in 2011. She is a Medical Director at the Londonwide Local Medical Committees (LLMC), Clinical Quality Director in the Transforming Primary Care Team at the Healthy London Partnership, and a central London GP. She has a keen interest in the wellbeing of staff and ‘Joy in Practice’, a concept that is missing in the GP’s experience of primary care that can mitigate burnout and lead to happier staff and happier patients. At the LLMC, she has developed a series of recommendations on how to bring joy and meaning to our work, through mastery (learning improvement skills) and membership (effective team working). At UCL Partners, she led the deteriorating patient collaborative across 15 acute trusts.
Dr Asiya Yunus completed her medical degree at Imperial College, and trained as a GP in Bloomsbury in central London.
Dr Dominic King - Clinical lead at Google DeepMind Health
Dr King's contributions to healthcare innovation are incredibly diverse.
He is the clinical lead at DeepMind Health - the artificial inteligence company that has made many headlines in recent years. He ensures their pioneering work is driven by input from doctors, nurses and patients, and backed by robust clinical evidence. He has also led the development of over a dozen digital health platforms and co-founded Hark, a clinical task management platform acquired by DeepMind in early 2016.
King co-authored the Cabinet Office Mindpace report, which provides a framework for designing effective public policy utilising the latest insights from behavioural economics. He went on to co-found the HELIX Centre, a joint effort between Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art to bring together technologists, designers and clinicians, and has served as a research lead at the world’s leading centre for patient safety, exploring ways that technology could prevent patients being harmed during treatment.
