UCU Clinical Director

Dr Nicholas Peat

I am a doctor who believes everyone can enjoy great health and have helped patients created significant life changes in past years. I have personal overcome severe Crohn’s disease through nutritional and lifestyle modifications and have professional experience in reversing chronic disease and improving health, fitness and mental wellbeing.

I am actively practicing clinical medicine in the private and NHS sectors and take a holistic approach to the care I provide. I think outside ‘the box’ and have excellent feedback from my patients.

I am a keen educator and teach and examine at the University of Cambridge. Most recently I have developed a student selected component (SSC) in Human Nutrition which forms a compulsory part of the undergraduate medical degree.

I do my best to practice what I preach and regularly partake in balanced exercise and avoid unhealthy food. I hold two second degree black belts in Shotokan and Okinawan Gojo Ru.

In October 2014 the Care Quality Commission awarded “Outstanding Practice” for a tool I created on lowering cholesterol and in July 2015 I was shortlisted to win the Patient Safety Awards for Improving Safety & Quality in Primary Care.

I was previously Medical Advisor to Doctors.net, the largest network of doctors in the UK with over 200,000 members.
