Steths, Drugs & Rock 'n' Roll

By Steths, Drugs & Rock n Roll

Health is at the forefront of everyone's minds right now. But how do you separate fact from fiction, what's the latest thinking from the brains in the medical world and what do the doctors working on the frontline really think? Steths, drugs & rock 'n' roll is a health podcast… but with a twist. This is a podcast with personality, heart and soul. Dr. Ranj is an NHS Emergency Paediatrician, Dr. Sara and Dr. Zoe are NHS GPs and Dr. Tijion is a private cosmetic doctor who's stepping back in to the NHS to support his fellow medics in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Each week they'll be giving their opinions on the latest news and headlines, as well as offering a few much needed laughs as they lift the lid on what happens when doctors go off duty!
