Which type of healthcare professional is best for you?
You may have a personal preference or be unsure of the difference between the options. As such, here is a quick summary and questionnaire (below) that you can take to help determine your best options.
Medical doctor (conventional / mainstream / evidence-based)
In the UK, doctors, GP’s, consultants practicing medicine this way will have been through medical school training and have active registration with the UK’s GMC (General Medical Council) and hold a licence to practise.
Functional / integrative medicine practitioner (evidence-based)
In the UK, the term ‘practitioner’ is used as a title for the person who practises this form of medicine, as opposed to ‘doctor’, as not all practitioners are registered as doctors, although many are. Certifications are awarded from the IFM (Institute for Functional Medicine) or NCIM (National Centre for Integrative Medicine).
Registered nutritionists, nutritional therapists & dieticians (evidence-based)
In the UK, only those registered with the statutory regulator, the HCPC (Health & Care Professions Council) can call themselves a dietitian / registered dietitian (RD) and only registrants with the UKVRN (UK Register of Nutritionists) can call themselves a registered nutritionist (RNutrs). Related certifications are awarded from BANT (British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine) and CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council).
In the UK, the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) is the official body for registered psychotherapists. A psychotherapist may be a psychiatrist, psychologist or other mental health professional, who has had further specialist training in psychotherapy.
