Patients registered at a Swindon practice will have the chance to appear on a new Channel 5 TV show next month - and to see some of the UK's best doctors.

The makers behind GPs Behind Closed Doors are coming to Swindon to film their new show GPs: Mobile Surgery at Tadpole Surgery for August and part of September.

Patients who belong to one of Westrop Practice's surgeries are eligible for a face-to-face appointment with the show's doctors and those appointments will not be limited to 10 minutes.

An advert for the show says: "Fed up of GP appointments over the phone? Have you been unable to see your GP face-to-face due to Covid? Have a complaint that you'd like a GP to take a look at? Visit our free mobile GP surgery!"

The mobile surgery will be set up at Tadpole Surgery so patients registered at Highworth, Hermitage, Blunsdon, Tadpole or Taw Hill can attend.

Swindon Advertiser:

Doctors are encouraging anyone with medical concerns to come into the surgery.

"Nothing is too big or too small", they say.

"So whether you have a long running medical concern, want a second opinion or have a problem that you'd like to get checked out, then we'd love to hear from you."

The mobile surgery will be based at Tadpole Surgery from August 1 to September 9.
