Dr Rangan Chatterjee, MBChB, BSc (Hons), MRCGP, MRCP
Dr Rangan Chatterjee hosted a unique 3 programme series on BBC1 in 2015. This series looked at how an NHS GP could immerse himself with three families to guide them back to health using the principles and practices of functional medicine.
In this lecture, we will hear from James Maskell, the Founder of the Functional Forum, as he shares real cases from the front lines of Functional Medicine in the USA. Expect a mixture of big ideas and practical tools to help you create a far more efficient practice model. He will illuminate a number of ways to streamline your practice, deliver care and remain viable.
