During his medical training, Umang realised that there needed to be more clinicians that understood and actively engaged in health management. In order to bridge the gap between clinicians and managers he joined the NHS Leadership Academy as a Clinical Fellow in 2012. This set him on an alternative medical career path which included being Head of Clinical Transformation at Aviva UK Health where he was responsible for a series of new initiatives in the model of healthcare delivery.
