    In addition to his clinical work, Mr Natali is committed to medical education. He has previously served as a senior lecturer for undergraduates at Queen Mary Westfield College and continues to train undergraduates, postgraduates, and other medical professionals. He is also the medical director of the Back2Normal rehabilitation clinic, where he oversees the treatment and recovery of patients with spinal conditions.
