Dr Nathan Hudson-peacock

Nathan is a medical doctor based in London, UK. He is a regular provider of medical support on remote international expeditions, with a particular interest in high altitude medicine. He is also a professional photographer and often acts as photographer on expedition providing clients with fantastic memories of what is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. 

Having graduated from the University of Cambridge with 1st class honours, he went on to complete his foundation medical training in East Kent and King’s College Hospital, London, for which he was awarded Trust Prizes for Clinical Excellence and Leadership. Since his foundation programme, he has remained in London to work as an Emergency Medicine doctor in one of London's busiest Major Trauma Centres. As of January 2020, he now works as an Intensive Care Doctor in another of London's top academic hospitals. 

Although he has a particular interest in high altitude medicine, he has provided medical support in a variety of environments, from desert to extreme cold, as well as high altitude. Through his work as an expedition doctor, he has been fortunate enough to go to Chamonix, the Sahara Desert, Mt Kilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp, K2 Base Camp, the Gondogoro La in Northern Pakistan, Cambodia, Ecuador and various parts of the Indian Himalayas. He has experience working with a variety of clients including single very high net worth individuals, large corporate groups of up to 100 participants, young adults and varied groups of charity fundraising trekkers.

Nathan is also a keen photographer, and invariably assumes the role of photographer and videographer on his various expeditions. He currently uses Nikon D750, iPhone XS and GoPro Hero 7 Black for these endeavours. If you would like to check out his photography, please take a moment to have a look at his instagram page here.
