Nick Williamson Acupuncture

I originally trained as a nurse and I have worked for over twenty five years in NHS pain management services, currently as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner at UCLH in Central London. I began using needling techniques in 1996 having completed a course for western medical professionals.

Three years training in Chinese medicine at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in Reading (1999-2002) were followed by post-graduate studies at the Zhejiang University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Hangzhou, China.

Until I returned to the NHS in 2009, I had acupuncture clinics in Marylebone, in the health centre of an investment bank in the City as well as my practice in East Dulwich. In order to make acupuncture more widely available I also set up a low cost clinic in Waterloo and I secured National Lottery funding to run a clinic for elderly people in Camberwell.

In 2013-14 I was acupuncturist in a central London GP surgery for a service targeting men who are stressed and/or depressed. This service (The Atlas Men's Wellbeing Project) was designed by researchers at Westminster University in conjunction with the GPs and was recognised by the British Medical Journal as one of the most innovative Primary Care projects in the NHS.

From 2002 until 2010 I was a member of staff at CICM, teaching students of Chinese medicine. I have a Master's degree in Chinese medicine from the University of Westminster and a Master's degree in Pain Management (conventional medicine) from the University of Leicester.

I have full membership of the British Acupuncture Council, the main regulatory body for traditional acupuncture in the UK, I am a member of the British Medical Acupuncture Society and I am registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
