The Street Doctors

The Street Doctors are on a mission

The third series of Street Doctor transmitted in spring 2008.
The doctors once more covered the length and breath of Britain, making calls in Aberdeen, Chester, Dover, the Lake District, Oxford, and Sheffield.

Did you know? Life expectancy for the UK increased between 1992 and 2005 by 3.6 years for males and 2.4 years for females. By 2005 there were only 9% of local authorities that had a life expectancy for males less than 75 years and only 13% of local authorities had female life expectancies less than 80 years.
