Dr Amir Khan, everyone’s favourite family doctor, has announced his first ever live dates, he will be in Newcastle’s Northern Stage, 24th May.
The ‘Doctor In The House’ tour promises a fascinating, heart-warming and frequently hilarious evening, where Dr. Amir will share stories about growing up in his British Asian family with 6 sisters, ruled by Mama Khan. He will also talk about his life as a general practitioner with emotional, and downright stories of patient encounters from the heartwarming to the bizarre , painting a profoundly revealing portrait of healthcare in twenty-first century Britain. Years of underfunding and lack of staff have brought the NHS to crisis point and Dr Amir will argue why it should be saved, before it’s too late.
He will also detail his personal journey to becoming a doctor, something he never wanted to do, preferring to become a vet. But how many Asian vets do you see? None right. And how many Asian doctors do you see? Bloody loads. Influenced by his mother, Amir applied to study medicine, and the rest, as they say, is history…
Finally, Dr Amir will bring the doctors surgery to you, taking questions from the audience and tackling seemingly personal and often challenging subjects in a relaxed and practical manner, offering advice – from sleeping issues and headaches, to joint pain and heart palpitations. This promises to be an entertaining, informative, and liberating evening with Dr Amir as he reminds us just how special the NHS really is.
“I can’t wait to see you all on my first U.K tour. Putting this show together has been so much fun…there’s a lot of laughs, some passionate support for our beloved NHS, and you get to put your medical questions to me. But please don’t tell Mama Khan about it…”
