Yesterday evening (Wednesday) I loaded up BBC iPlayer to watch the first episode of the new ‘Doctor in the House’ series.
In addition, this program confirms that preventative medicine can be a powerful tool that can be proactively employed by the individual. Rangan did not coerce his patients to complete any of his interventions. The emphasis was, deliberately, on informed consent. I think it would be better to say that Rangan promoted ‘educated’ consent; perhaps it was this extra level of doctor-patient engagement that catalysed the 1.5 stone weight loss, or the ‘metabolic age’ reversal from 55 to 36 years old.
The Success of “Doctor in the House” emphasises the Power of Media.
