GPs with street cred

The BBC is planning to launch a new reality TV show featuring four GPs who will take to the streets to deliver healthcare.

Street Doctor will feature

Dr George Rae (pictured), chair of Newcastle and North Tyneside LMC, Dr Jonty Heaversedge and

Dr Ayan Panja from London and

Dr Barbara Murray from Stockport.

In the eight-part series to start early next year, the GPs will visit a different town or city each week. They will see patients on the street, in shopping centres, at their office and even on the bus.

The four GPs were featured

on the BBC's One Show, which showed people were willing to consult with a doctor on camera.
