Dr Hana Patel is a versatile and experienced general practitioner in family medicine and life and mental health coach in the Southeast London area. She specialises in well-man and male fertility checks, menopause, paediatric checks, over 50's health checks for men and women, and memory health checks. In addition to her practice in family medicine, Dr Patel currently practises as an mental health and life coach, and offers qualified and regulated coaching supervision.
She first received her medical degree in 2005 from The University of London, and continued to further her medical qualifications through rigorous trainings and degrees. These include, but are not limited to, specialised diplomas in leadership and management, postgraduate qualifications in family planning, women's health, elderly medicine, and a Master's degree in medical education and strategic leadership. Dr Patel has trained with institutions such as King's College London, University of London, and University of Kent. In 2010, she received her qualification from The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).
Currently, Dr Patel practises mainly in mental health and life coaching, along with coaching supervision. She has a passion for mentoring, aiding both fellow qualified doctors, future doctors, and her patients. For many years she was providing these services solely to colleagues before she decided to open them up to all clients, as well. Due to both her background as a general practitioner and personal experiences, Dr Patel is able to provide a unique holistic approach which is individualised per patient and session.
Dr Patel's passion and dedication to coaching, mentoring, and education can be seen via her roles as an Academic mentor for Health Education England, a General Medical Council examiner and carrying out coaching and mentoring for primary care within the NHS. She truly embodies all that coaching requires, giving her patients a trusted and high-quality service alongside long-term care. University of Kent has made her an Honorary lecturer, which she does in congruent with teachings and trainings around the country and international lectures.
Having presentations and research resulting in published works, Dr Patel is internationally known. She is presently a section editor for the RCGP medical journal for GP trainees all around the world, InnovAiT.
