Never Seen A Doctor


Across the UK there are people who don’t ever see a doctor, a dentist or a surgeon, but desperately need to. In ‘Never Seen A Doctor’, Katie Piper travels the length and breadth of the UK, to meet those people who’ve spent years ignoring their condition and encourages them to take control of their own lives for the better.


The series lifts the lid on those who’ve spent years neglecting themselves, be it through fear or financial worries and following their journeys as they undertake dramatic transformations. From curing chronic acne to turning extreme dental disasters into a perfect smile Katie discovers the damage we can do to our bodies by shying away from medical maintenance and finds out what can be done to help.


With all manner of medical mishaps and dental disasters hiding behind the nation’s doors, all of them share the simple truth that they should have seen a doctor, should have seen a dentist.
