Dr Dawn has been an NHS doctor for over 30 years and currently works in General Practice in Gloucestershire.
She splits her week between clinical practice and working on all platforms of the media. Her ability to simplify complex medical issues has made her an extremely sought-after medical commentator and expert.
Dawn is perhaps best known as one of the presenters on Channel 4’s hit series ‘Embarrassing Bodies’ and ‘Embarrassing Bodies: Live From The Clinic’. ‘Embarrassing Bodies’ ran for seven hugely successful years and is currently running on Discovery Channels and in 120 countries across the world.
Her other shows include Fat Family Tree and Born Naughty for Channel 4 and she has recently filmed some documentaries for Channel 5, due to be aired later this year. She is regularly asked to join various television and radio channels to comment on topical health stories and writes for several magazines.
Dawn has authored 12 books, her latest, published by Headline is “Live Well to 101” which looks at all the factors influencing healthy longevity and can be purchased here.
Dawn is an excellent public speaker and is often booked to give key note presentations at conferences and to facilitate at international meetings.
When not at work, Dawn is a keen supporter of several charities. She lives in the country with her partner Jack and their Jack Russell terriers. (Dawn’s dog, Fennel, even has her own social media accounts @drdawnsdog!) and loves cycling.
She also loves the theatre and is delighted to have teamed up with the Barn Theatre @barntheatre to produce a weekly live show “from behind the barn door” bringing people up to date with developments in the coronavirus pandemic and answering the public’s questions.
