BANT LAUNCHES ITS NEW PODCAST PROGRAMME FOR 2020

Today marks the launch of the BANT Podcast!

Each episode will be a conversation with a BANT member who is an expert in a specific field. We will get their specialist insight on working with clients, testing, supplements and real in-practice wisdoms about a particular area of nutrition and health.

We are launching with a series of three podcasts and we are excited to announce our first three guests: Tracey Randell giving clinical pearls on IBS and SIBO, Alex Manos talking through how he approaches complex, multifactorial cases and Stella Chadwick who shares her vast experience of working with children with neurological issues such as autism.

The aim of the BANT Podcast Programme is to complement the wealth of amazing information, already in existence via the laboratories and supplement companies, with information on how BANT expert practitioners use testing, supplements and nutrition with the real-life cases they encounter.

For ease of listening, download the BANT Podcast to your phone or use the links on BANT website. Each podcast is worth an hour of CPD.

Please do get in touch if you are an expert in a specific field or if you would like to recommend someone. We are already looking forward to welcoming Justine Bold who will be discussing fertility, for our next series, but also would love to hear your suggestions for future topics and Podcast guests.

COVID-19 BANT BULLETIN – 13 MAY 2020

BANT’s Advice Following the Prime Ministers Speech Relating to Face-to-Face Consultations

Following on from the Prime Minister’s speech on Sunday, BANT has received numerous requests for guidelines on reverting back to face-to-face consultations.

BANT’s clear recommendation is that its members continue working remotely from home for the foreseeable future and to heed the government advice to continue to stay home and protect lives.

Government announcements have made it clear that only essential or emergency services should be delivered face-to-face.

BANT wants to reassure its members that it is aware that they need to get back to work (most of its volunteer directors and part-time managers are also practising NTs) but we owe it to our members’, the public (both general and vulnerable) and the front line workers to put safety first.

Rest assured, BANT is already anticipating guidelines and is already working on these. They will be published at the appropriate time. Unfortunately, that time is not yet.

BANT’s Advice Following the Prime Ministers Speech Relating to Face-to-Face Consultations

Following on from the Prime Minister’s speech last night, BANT has become aware that some of its members are planning to return to face-to-face practice in the very near future.

Government announcements have made it clear that only essential or emergency services should be delivered face-to-face.

BANT’s clear recommendation is that its members continue working remotely from home for the foreseeable future and to heed the government advice to continue to stay home and protect lives.

Most, if not all, of our members have transitioned their practice online, for those who have found this transition challenging we empathise, but strongly believe that the COVID-19 era will be with us for the foreseeable future.  Whilst cases are decreasing in the UK they are still at high levels. Deconfinement in China and Germany have both resulted in an increase in new cases. Indeed Wuhan registered its first infection in a month, yesterday.  BANT recommends that its members consider online work as the new normal for now. Please see our COVID-19 Bulletins for links to materials BANT has made available to assist their members to transition online – https://bant.org.uk/category/covid-19/).

We also urge each member to follow the Government updates: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
