If you share our ambition to reframe healthcare: join us!

The Society was founded to support those working on the frontline with patients who have chronic conditions and illnesses. And our members are the beating heart of what we do.

“I wish here also to send a very personal and very big thank you for starting the BSLM – it’s just such a great society – it really brought me back to life in terms of my personal and professional enthusiasm for healthcare, which had been so lost in the daily constraints of the NHS.” Geraldine Mulligan, (BMBS, BMedSci, BSc, DipIBLM, MRCGP, DFSRH, DRCOG) lifestylemedicineforwomen.co.uk
