Dr Amir Khan
Dr Amir Khan is a full-time GP working in Bradford, and a popular TV Doctor, appearing on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Lorraine, and Tonight, and in the Channel 5 series GPs Behind Closed Doors, You Are What You Eat and How to Give Up Sugar.
Following graduation, Dr Amir cut his teeth as a junior doctor at hospitals across Merseyside, before qualifying as a GP in 2009.
He completed his Diploma in Child Health (DCH) and Diploma from the Royal College in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (DRCOG), giving him particular expertise in children’s and women’s health. Dr Amir has also completed his Diploma in Diabetes (DipDiab) and is a GP with a specialist interest in Type 2 diabetes. He has also specialised in minor surgery and joint injections.
In 2018, he was named GP Trainer of the Year by the Royal College of General Practitioners for his efforts in coaching the next generation of GPs.
Since then, Dr Amir has published his memoir, The Doctor Will See You Now, a Sunday Times best-seller charting his 15 years working as a GP, from rookie to becoming a partner in one of the UK’s busiest surgeries.
His stories are as much about community and care as they are about blood tests and bodily fluids. Along the way, he introduces us to the patients that have taught him about love, loss and family.
He’s also passionate about nature, Vice President of the National Wildlife Trust and an Ambassador for the Butterfly Conservation Society.
When he’s not helping to save lives, he’s also a keen gardener, runner, fitness enthusiast, traveller and baker!
Dr Amir Khan is an Ambassador for the bereavement charity The Good Grief Trust, and continues to be a full time NHS GP working in inner-city Bradford.
