Meet the clinic team

Our busy teaching clinic in Bethnal Green treats a wide range of patients from across the local community. Our Clinical Director Dr Lucy Mackay Tumber heads up our team of clinical tutors who supervise, mentor, and teach our osteopathy students.


Clinical Tutors

All of our clinical teaching team are involved in osteopathy practice outside of the teaching clinic and bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience which benefits both students and patients.

Our clinic tutors have specialist backgrounds in a wide range of areas including women’s health, paediatrics, sports rehabilitation, structural and cranial osteopathy and equine osteopathy.

This allows students to experience a wide range of specialisms as part of their studies.


Specialist clinic

Our popular paediatric teaching clinic provides students observational experience of some of our youngest patients.
