Dr Adam Bell

Healthcare Partnerships

Adam's background is in mental health, having worked for four years as a psychiatry registrar in front-line health services. His first-hand experience in mental health care provides key insights into Step's use in public health and electronic social prescribing practices. Through engaging partners in the health and social care sector, he uses their insights and professional opinions to better inform product design. Combining this with his understanding of the social determinants of health, Adam views Step as a platform with the potential to improve the health of the general population at scale. With his medical background, Adam is able to inform the Step COVID-19 response in using evidence-based public health guidance and minimise any potential risks to volunteers.
