Speakers

Dr Warren Macdonald is an orthopaedic bioengineer with experience in clinical orthopaedics, research and industry; interested in implant and instrumentation design, fracture fixation devices and strategies and bone responses to system design and performance. Having worked in three hospitals (over 8 years), three academic units (over 18 years), in the implant industry as a bioengineer (for 2 years), and having worked as a Consulting engineer in Orthopaedic Bioengineering for fifteen years, Warren has wide experience in academic practice, the clinical application of engineering and the commercial medical device area.

Ele Harwich work focuses on helping clients within the digital health sector with their regulatory and go to market strategies. She has deep expertise in digital health with particular focus on cutting edge technologies, like artificial intelligence, and regulation. She was previously Head of Collaborations at the NHS AI Lab and led on two key reports on the evaluation of AI-enabled medical devices, and ways to develop and deploy AI-enabled medical devices across jurisdictions. She is a member of the British Standards Institution and is currently sitting on the “Validation framework for the use of AI within healthcare” committee (BS30440).

Kanwal Bhatia completed her PhD in Medical Image Computing at Imperial College London in 2007. She has since worked in academia, developing novel algorithmic techniques, as well as in industry and start-ups, translating those techniques to real-world practice. Based on these experiences, she founded Aival (Metalynx) in 2020, a start-up aiming to accelerate adoption of AI by bridging the gap between vendors and healthcare providers. Aival provides software for the robust evaluation and monitoring of AI products at local clinical sites, building trust with clinical users before procurement and ensuring continued performance once in use.

Yasmin has been with the NHS for five years, starting as a Graduate Management Trainee at Guy’s and St Thomas (GSTT) and advancing to a Service Manager position. In this role, she focuses on operational and strategic management of outpatient services, collaborating with clinical teams to enhance patient experiences. Yasmin’s skills include writing NHS business cases, overseeing large-scale administration, and integrating digital technology into clinical settings. Notably, she played key roles in implementing an electronic patient record system and managing an online booking system for Paediatric Allergy Challenges at GSTT.
