    BDFL and Clinical Adviser

    Marcus is a self-described 'General Hacktitioner' GP, Emergency Physician, specialist in clinical IT, and a programmer of an increasing range of languages that he barely understands. He founded Open Health Hub with Rob Dyke and Ewan Davis back in 2012, and since then has been trying to create positive change in NHS IT.

    All The Tech

    Rob is a veteran practitioner of open sourcery in NHS-land. He's developed innovative products, successfuly navigated procurements, formed (unlikely) alliances, written award bids winning £ms for NHS orgs from tech/nursing/challenge funds, and survived the benign and benevolent effects of support from 'the centre'. Just.

    Smartcard Guy

    Brett's passion is solving big scary problems. He is most at home working on the moonshot projects leading or delivering transformational change to organisations and users. He has an extensive background in delivery of large scale critical services but remains a techie at heart. Knows a bit too much about riding bikes irresponsibly.

    Paolo has no experience with NHS technology and doesn't even know who his GP is but he knows a lot about Open Source and good food which is what really matters.
