Professor David Peters
Clinical Director, School of Integrated Health Faculty of Science and Technology University of Westminster
Professor Peters trained as a family doctor, and later in osteopathic medicine and as a musculoskeletal physician. From 1990 until 2005 he directed the highly innovative complementary therapies development programme at Marylebone Health Centre (MHC), a ground-breaking Central London NHS GP unit set up in 1986 to explore new approaches to inner-city primary healthcare. Health centres countrywide have employed the collaborative model he developed with Patrick Pietroni’s multidisciplinary team at MHC, and the growth of interest in the use of complementary therapies, notably osteopathy and acupuncture, for NHS musculoskeletal services is in part the legacy of his work.
