Dr Preet Chana
Dr Preet runs our general functional medicine clinic. Using an evidence and science based model each patient is assessed as an individual and a personalised plan is created. Dr Preet qualified from The University of Birmingham in 2013 and has worked as an NHS hospital doctor for almost 8 years in various medical specialties including acute internal medicine, psychiatry, diabetes and general medicine. She has always had a keen interest in nutrition and the holistic approach to health, and completed the AFMCP training from the Institute of Functional Medicine in 2018. She is passionate about looking for root causes of symptoms, lifestyle medicine, health optimization and empowering patients to take control of their own health and wellbeing.

We offer 2 packages of care with Dr Preet Chana, depending on your health needs.
These include a 95 mins consultation with Dr Preet, with fully tailored treatment plan and prescription, plus may include a consultation with Nathalie, our functional nutritionist.
This can give you the opportunity to put Dr Preet’s plan into action, with a food first approach. Nathalie's sessions are designed to empower you with the tools you need to put healthy eating habits into practice and make them sustainable. It is useful for us to understand how you eat and so prior to a session we will ask you to complete a food diary. This helps us to make recommendations for you that are realistic, work for the whole family and your schedule. We also want to make sure you love what you’re eating so we make recommendations based on the things you enjoy eating – we might just suggest a different way to prepare it. If you need to adapt your diet over a short period of time to exclude particular foods in line with your treatment plan, Nathalie will support you to find alternatives and solutions until you can transition back to a fuller diet.
Nathalie may conduct follow up consultations in between your appointments with Dr Preet to review your whole treatment plan, including nutrition plan and supplement regime. Nathalie is highly experienced and trained in the Functional Medicine model and will continue to work with you at the highest level between your sessions with your doctor.
Prices for initial consultations range from £240 - £440 dependent on the complexity of your health needs. Follow up's range between £180 - £220 dependent upon your package.
We offer face to face, Video or Phone Consultation with Dr Preet
We use functional medicine testing from Genova, Invivo, Regenerus and Cyrex. This includes gut microbiome, SIBO, genetic, food allergy and nutritional status testing; as well as standard blood tests through our phlebotomy service. The cost of tests and recommended supplements or medicines are not included in the consultation fee and will vary for each individual.
To find out more about how we can support you on your health journey, there is a short questionnaire which you can complete online or via the phone with our receptionist. We can then discuss what would be the most appropriate package for you and the current availability of appointments.
