Dr Lucia Batty FRCP FFOM has been awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians in London (UK) and is also a Fellow of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine, with over two decades of experience as a physician, helping thousands of patients.
She is a lead medical consultant in a major London teaching hospital and one of the largest training departments in her specialty.
Her interests are medical education and research (Dr Batty won the Trainer of the Year Award at King’s College Hospital in 2015) and she continues to oversee a number of dissertation projects.
She is also a UK Chief Examiner for Workplace Based Assessment at the Faculty of Occupational Medicine and supports the London Deanery with the ARCPs and was previously an NHS Training Programme Director.
Dr Batty has an interest in optimising mental health and resilience, and has completed advanced leadership courses, as well as enhanced psychology and mental health training through CBT, NLP, Emotional Intelligence and Stress Management training.
Dr Batty is a Graduate of AFMCP UK 2018, (Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice), a specialised training which enables practitioners to explore and address root causes of disease instead of managing symptoms.
Her main interests are prevention and reversal of chronic autoimmune conditions, gut restoration and helping people to optimise their health.
Functional medicine emphasises a definable and teachable process of integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function.
The Institute for Functional Medicine teaches health care professional’s how to apply these principles in practice through an intensive 5 day training course called Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™.
I attended and completed the AFMCP™-UK training in London in 2018.
