Dr Adam Read – CEO & Editor

Adam worked as a surgical doctor in the NHS for 8 years before studying a Masters in Sports Medicine. Now, as a technology business founder and CEO, he is acutely aware of the pressures of running a business.

He believes that practitioners should focus on what they are great at doing: helping clients. His mission is to support every practitioner on their journey to successfully manage as many clients as possible and to make healthcare evidence-based and data-driven.

This evolution of PPH is his way of objectively reviewing every product, service and practitioner within the PPH ecosystem and he is excited to introduce this new consumer focus by using validated scoring tools to influence decisions online.

He loves working with passionate people who believe in their products and offers a range of methods to help them market themselves to the right audiences in the complex healthcare marketplace.
