National Clinical Director for Innovation, NHS England

Young is a self-described "mad inventor", acting as disruptor-in-chief for NHS England in an attempt to create what amounts to a mini Silicon Valley located within the bureaucracy of the NHS. Young is also a working surgeon, the founder of four medical startups and the cofounder of the £500m Anglia Ruskin MedTech Campus. He has been a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Southend Hospital since 2007 where his specialist clinical interests include stone disease and laser prostate surgery.

In January 2010 he was appointed as Director of Medical Innovation at the Postgraduate Medical Institute at Anglia Ruskin University. This role focuses on transforming the MedTech Innovation process. He is leading on research, development and commercialisation of new medical devices and developing new educational programmes in this area. Through his role at the PMI he has been instrumental in bringing together the partnership that forms the Anglia Ruskin MedTech Campus. The MedTech campus will be one of the world’s largest health innovation spaces and will transform the UK MedTech sector.
