About Jane Nathan
Leader of a medical education specialist team, developing and delivering live and virtual programs for professionals worldwide,
Background in Education and Clinical Development of New Medicines.
Founder and Clinic Director at Healthcare On Demand clinics in Surrey, UK.
HoD clinics bring together a team of highly skilled health practitioners of physical, psychological and complementary therapies. We treat a wide range of conditions affecting mental and physical health across all ages from babies through to the elderly. Healthcare On Demand was born out of the experiences of my family as we searched for reliable and professional healthcare for a variety of conditions. We discovered that it isn’t always easy to access the help we need when we need it and that there was a necessity for high quality centralised healthcare provision. We hope to help others meet their needs.
