EVER wondered what goes on in your local surgery? One GP practice in Lewisham has given Channel 5 exclusive access to the 500 patients who pass through it every day.

Each episode of The Surgery: Medicating Lewisham will cover one week at St John’s Medical Centre in Loampit Hill.

Channel 5 says the forthcoming series will cover the volume and range of medical problems, along with the pressures the support team at the surgery are under. 

Commissioner of current affairs and documentaries for Channel 5 Emma Westcott said: "The role of GPs in our healthcare system is under currently under the microscope.

"By lifting the lid on an ordinary GP surgery, we will show the extraordinary day to day lives of its staff and patients and get a revealing insight into the state of the nation's health".

Filming, by fitting a fixed camera rig to the consulting rooms, is yet to begin.
