Workshop title

How to connect with our local GPs, boost your business and take the strain off the NHS

Workshop times


Workshop description

Come and discuss with me the idea that we can collaborate together in order to make a positive change to our local communities: by connecting with your local GP surgeries, receiving referrals from them, building your businesses as a result, and the bottom line, helping more people with acupuncture to reduce the strain on the NHS.

This interactive session will cover:

  • how to connect with your local GP surgeries and local health professionals
  • how to approach your local clinical commissioning group (CCG) and GP federations
  • collating resources for health professionals and preparing your presentation packs
  • conclusions from a pilot project run by Rebecca in Norwich: how did it work and could it work better
  • further ideas on how to promote acupuncture and build relationships with local health professionals

There is power in numbers, so come on, let's make a difference, help more people, be recognised for reducing suffering and stand out.

Speaker biography

Rebecca graduated in 2011 from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM). She followed her dream to help others and at the same time move away from a stressful career in catering.

After qualifying, Rebecca focused on natural fertility health and pregnancy, learning from pioneers in this field, including Jani White, Debra Betts, and Zita West. In her first year of practice her feet barely touched the ground as she attended births as an acupuncturist, set up a community acupuncture multibed (with special interest in fertility and pregnancy), and launched the Acupuncture Childbirth Team for East Anglia. 

In 2016 her busy acupuncture multibed and private practice expanded and evolved into ‘Treat’, a complementary health clinic in Norwich, where her special interests have developed into a more holistic, all encompassing, empowering approach. 

Rebecca's new mission is to help the potential regulation of acupuncture by reaching out to other acupuncturists, giving them the tools to be able to connect with their local health professionals to reduce suffering by collaborating with the NHS. A big task, but she’s is up for it!

So what does Rebecca do when she’s not working? She loves taking off in the camper van, and being a big foodie due to her previous career, a food tour or unusual catering experience really floats her boat.
