A doctor is treating patients on the road in his latest TV series.

Dr Amir Khan is the presenter of GPs Mobile Surgery, from the makers of GPs: Behind Closed Doors, which has been treating people when they have opted to have a real doctor's appointment while on camera.

The mobile surgery travelled up and down the country last year and features a reception area and consultation room.

The first episode of the Channel 5 series was first broadcast on January 3, with subsequent shows broadcast every Tuesday.

Dr Amir took to Instagram to promote the new series, posting: A new series of GPs Behind Closed Doors starts TONIGHT on @channel5_tv 7pm - featuring myself and our Debs, plus loads of familiar faces!

“Can’t wait for you to watch, and let me know what you think!”

In another Instagram post, by Channel 5, Dr Amir gives a video tour of the mobile surgery, meeting some of the people who will meet and greet the show’s participants on their arrival.

In episode two, to be screened on January 10, Dr Amir offers support to Jean who is struggling with a rare blood cancer diagnosis.

She opens up about losing her husband to bladder cancer and her fear of the future.

Jean is desperate to see her grandchildren grow up and is finding the uncertainty of what is to come overwhelming.


Other patients helped out during next week’s episode include former professional footballer Lee has taken many a knock during his career, and is in the mobile surgery to see ANP Debbie Harris about his knee. He’s already on a high dose of painkillers but Debbie thinks it’s time to hatch a better plan for his chronic pain management.

Meanwhile, Naomi has just returned from honeymooning in America and is worried that after all the flying she might have a DVT. She’s also newly pregnant, which puts her at even higher risk. Dr Claire Taylor does everything she can to reassure her.

It is not Dr Amir’s first association with the GPs Behind Closed Doors series. In 2018, his Ridge Medical Practice in Great Horton was used for filming of the show’s sixth series.

The programme offers a disarmingly honest and often entertaining look at the stresses, strains and joys of working in, and using, the NHS in modern Britain.

GPs: Mobile Surgery continues on Channel 5 every Tuesday at 7pm.
