Healthtech radio show sees huge growth



The ongoing growth of healthtech is reflected in the surging interest in a radio station’s show on the topic. 

HealthTech Hour has become UK Health Radio’s fastest-growing show ever, surpassing 500,000 listeners in less than six months.

The show sees Steve Roest, CEO and founder of PocDoc, speaking to the founders, leaders, clinicians and investors who are driving the healthtech revolution and are at the forefront of healthcare innovation. 

Previous guests include Dr Nick Taylor CEO of Unmind, the global leader in digital mental health services in workplaces; Dr Kate Bunyan, chief innovation officer of leading virtual GP provider Dr Care Anywhere; Dr Sarah Jarvis; and Kate Newhouse, chief operating officer of Kooth, the UK’s leading digital mental health provider.

The show’s success reflects the national and international growth in interest around healthtech over the past 18 months, which has also seen a surge in health degree applications and record investment in companies, both from private investment and public funding.

As CEO of PocDoc, which is backed by the NHS Digital Accelerator as “healthtech set to transform the NHS,” Steve is ideally placed to be able to bring together the founders, leaders, clinicians and investors who are driving the healthtech revolution, providing a platform through HealthTech Hour. 

“We are thrilled that an idea we had a few months ago has now not only become reality but has taken off more than we could ever have believed,” says Steve. 

“The public have a clear interest in health technology and the future of healthcare in this country, we hope to now kick even further on and bring some of the leading figures in health and technology from across the world onto the show and deliver fantastic content and interviews for our listeners.”

HealthTech Hour can be listened to live while all previous episodes are also available to listen again.
