GPs at the south east London surgery again braved the TV cameras to show the reality of life as a family doctor in GPs Behind Closed Doors on Channel 5 - how did they do this time?

In the second of four episodes, Channel 5 filmed the practice’s six doctors and two healthcare practitioners treating some of the 1,400 patients seen at the Lewisham surgery each week.

Dr Chrisanthan Ferdinand, a GP at the practice, said he hoped the series would have a positive impact on the perception of general practice - and the first episode undoubtedly helped. But how did colleagues and patients respond on social media to the second episode?
