Dr Phil's Rude Health Show
This listing is from a previous year. Search for current listings.
Brought up in Australia, Phil Hammond qualified as a doctor in 1987. He is Private Eye's medical correspondent and broke the story of the Bristol heart scandal in 1992, which lead to the largest public enquiry in British history seven years later. He became a GP in 1991 but first came into the public spotlight writing a column for The Independent and as half of Struck Off And Die, with Tony Gardner. He still works part-time as a GP and lecturer, but is better known for his TV work, including Trust Me, I'm A Doctor on BBC 2. He is also the author of three best-selling books: Medicine Balls, Trust Me I'm (Still) A Doctor and Sex, Sleep or Scrabble?. Inspired by the 60th anniversary of the NHS, Dr Phil focuses on the health cost of pleasure-seeking, and seeks to answer the awkward questions about sexual health that people daren't ask.
