Games To Play With Your Doctor: Dr Phil Hammond
Medicine is jolly serious, life and death, pain and suffering, pills and needles.
But wouldn’t a trip to the doctor or a rush up to A+E be much more fun if it was a game? In his brand new show, Dr Phil – a campaigning journalist and the only comedian to have appeared at a public inquiry – turns the whole of medicine into a succession of games for you to play with your doctor*. What’s the diagnosis? What’s the misdiagnosis? Why are you doing that to me doctor? How long have I got? And when did you last wash your hands?
Learn how to sing your symptoms, sniff a thermometer, diagnose your doctor, arm wrestle for drugs, get passed the bearded receptionist and get out of the NHS alive – all through Dr Phil’s highly subversive guerrilla tactics, some of which may be counter-productive. But at least they’re not boring.
*nurse, receptionist, manager, politician, regulator, lawyer, pancreas
A real doctor with an axe to grind; black comedy with a political edge. Phil Hammond is a GP, writer, broadcaster and possibly the only comedian to have appeared at a public inquiry. He is Private Eye's medical correspondent and has appeared on Have I Got News for You, The News Quiz, The Now Show and Countdown. He is rude about everything (politicians, doctors, death, drugs, sex, himself) but in a funny way. Free swabs and sick notes for all.
