Doctor in the House
Dr Amir Khan
Join everyone’s favourite family doctor, Dr Amir Khan, for a fascinating, heart-warming, and frequently hilarious evening as he shares stories about growing up in his British Asian family with 5 sisters, ruled by Mama Khan, and his life as a general practitioner.
Live on stage, Dr Amir will detail his journey to becoming a doctor - something he never wanted to do, preferring to become a vet. But how many Asian vets do you see? None right. And how many Asian doctors do you see? Bloody loads. Influenced by his mother, Amir applied to study medicine, and the rest, as they say, is history; after appearing on GPs Behind Closed Doors, he is currently ITV’s Lorraine and Good Morning Britain doctor, the host of Channel 5’s You Are What You Eat, and author of bestselling book, The Doctor Will See You Now.
He’ll share funny, emotional, and downright bizarre stories of patient encounters, painting a profoundly revealing portrait of healthcare in twenty-first century Britain. Years of underfunding and lack of staff have brought the NHS to crisis point and Dr Amir will argue why it should be saved, before it’s too late.
Finally, Dr Amir will bring the doctors surgery to you, taking questions from the audience and tackling seemingly personal and often challenging subjects in a relaxed and practical manner, offering advice – from sleeping issues and headaches, to joint pain and heart palpitations.
This promises to be an entertaining, informative, and liberating evening. Don’t miss this opportunity to spend an evening with Dr Amir Khan as he reminds us just how special the NHS really is.
