GPs: Behind Closed Doors is a reality series which follows life inside a busy South-west London doctors surgery.
Observational documentary series filmed inside a busy health centre in Bristol. Dr Ahmed reassures an anxious teen before suggesting he may benefit from counselling, Dr Ramshaw advises a teenager who fainted and banged her head after returning from a holiday, and Dr Pelly treats a youngster on medication for ADHD who is complaining of severe headaches.
In this special episode, a light is shone on the trials and joys of being a pensioner in the UK in 2017. 92-year-old Roy is struggling with carpal tunnel syndrome, while Cherry is concerned about a mole on her shoulder.
The GPs focus there energies onto their most precious and demanding patients - children and babies. Polly is just a few months old and her family are worried as she has a habit of opening her eyes extremely wide to the point where her eyeballs vibrate, Dr Bolam examines Jonathan whose family are concerned that he has meningitis, and Alfie has an irregular heartbeat that needs monitoring.
Patients this week include regular Michael who is due to have his toe amputated, Donovan who is stressed from caring for his wife, Richard whose blood test doubles as an alcohol test, and Janet who fell off her high heels.
It's Christmas at Horfield Health Centre in Bristol. Dr Ahmad is trying to find out why her patient Robert is complaining of dizzy spells, Dr Lee thinks her patient Jane's lack of appetite could be a sign of something sinister, and Dr Pelly's patient James is complaining of ringing in his ears.
New Year brings in some patients hoping to make fresh starts. Dr Ramshaw has some encouraging words for Nicola who is trying to lose weight, Dr Cordell asks a patient to be open about his drinking habits, and Ali worries about how he can control his temper while giving up smoking.
