Sue Ng, assistant producer of Maverick TV, which also makes shows for the BBC and ITV, said: ‘They should be a counterpoint to many of the groomed, conventional, super toned medical professionals already on television.
‘We are looking for someone with a relaxed style who definitely enjoys having a drink or perhaps the odd cigarette.
‘We want someone with ‘everyman’ appeal who does not necessarily believe you need to live like a saint to be happy and healthy.
‘The GP or hospital doctor should possess a broad medical background and have an engaging, enthusiastic personality. It doesn’t matter if they haven’t had broadcasting experience before, but they should have lots of confidence and be happy to talk authoritatively on television if required/be comfortable in front of a camera.’
