Deepak Samson


Deepak’s passion to marry technology with care to offer a genuine solution to the pressing problems with care provision within Northern Ireland and the wider UK led him to start Connected Care Solutions. He comes with almost a decade of experience holding various management positions in Northern Ireland’s Health Service.

He has an MSc in Health and Public Leadership and loves nothing more than to think (and act) outside the box; although Jazz and Theology are his first loves!!!

John Compton

Strategic Advisor

John comes with a wealth of experience in senior level positions in Healthcare, including as Chief Executive of Health Trusts and the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB).

He specialises in change management at a very strategic level and has led many transformational initiatives in Northern Ireland, including authoring Transforming Your Care – a comprehensive review to recommend and implement a major reshape in the delivery of health and social care in Northern Ireland.

A social worker by background, he has an MSc in Applied Social Studies and has been awarded Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2013, for services to Health & Social Care. What most people don’t know is if it wasn’t for the bloomin 90 miles an hour gale force winds, John would have finally reached the summit of Mont Blanc. He still plots of getting back up there!

Shortly after qualifying (FCCA) David started his career in the technology space with Tandem Computers, after which he went on to co-found one of the very first digital-imaging software houses – Imagesolve.
