NCIM has four pillars of delivery:

  • Membership: Transforming healthcare together through our Society for Integrative Healthcare

Our wellbeing and community services support access to a wide range of integrative healthcare approaches with a multidisciplinary Integrative Clinical team.

Education is also a key part of NCIM’s mission to create change. As an accredited teaching centre, we deliver a range of education programmes for healthcare professionals, including a two-year master’s Level 7 Diploma in Integrative Healthcare and Foundation and Advanced Training in Medical Homeopathy.

In 2023, NCIM started working in strategic partnership with the Health and Wellbeing Trust (HWT), a charity that is passionate about widening access to Integrative Healthcare and shares many of NCIM’s values. Together, we are fundraising and working with partnership organisations to activate the eLearning platform which offers a range of accredited Integrative Healthcare courses, with the aim of being the go-to platform for healthcare professionals and interested members of the public who want access to affordable, highquality, accredited courses with experts in their field.
