Dr. Ishani Patel is a GP, entrepreneur, and co-founder of Lantum, an organization on a mission to revolutionize the healthcare workforce and reduce the NHS’s staffing costs through effective operating systems and mentorship for healthcare professionals. She is a contributing author for the Pulse blog and has led the development of online learning modules for the Royal College of GP’s.

She regularly speaks on topics related to early cancer detection in primary care - a topic she is deeply passionate about.
Dr. Ishani joins me today to share a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Lantum and how the organization is helping the NHS save £1-billion in staffing costs. We discuss the process they used to gain capital investments to start their business and the different departments at Lantum. We discuss how the company began working with leading healthcare experts and how they expanded their services from primary to secondary and integrated care systems. We also discuss how Dr. Ishani manages her various roles as an entrepreneur and GP and her perspective on turning negative feedback into a positive experience.
