8.00pm Doctor in the House Channel 4 - When it comes to avoiding the GP, most of us have to plead guilty. We continue to put up with our daily ailments no matter how troublesome they become. But dodging the doctor might cause problems later and doesn't help the NHS, either. The problems we leave unattended, because we're too busy, don't want to bother the doctor, or are actually too scared to confront - can end up costing the NHS millions. But, for one busy family, the Whites, that's all about to stop. Not only is the doctor making a house call - he's staying. The family is about to get a medical like no other, as Dr Xand van Tulleken moves in for the weekend. From dad Dylan's snoring and cholesterol, to mum Nicky's blood pressure, and teen daughters Susannah and Natasha's skin, ear and hair worries, Dr Xand uncovers the truth about the family.
