Kate Garraway to present "groundbreaking" health series

Kate Garraway to present
Kate Garraway is named co-host of a new show, Doctor, Can You See Me Now?, which will allow healthcare patients to see inside their own bodies thanks to "groundbreaking" technology.

Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway is to present an innovative new health series that will let patients see inside their own bodies.

Called Doctor, Can You See Me Now?, the new six-part show will use "the latest augmented reality know-how and medical imaging technology" to shed new light on conditions such as kidney stones, heart disease and back pain.

Last week Garraway, who will co-host with Dr Guddi Singh, won a National Television Award for her one-off ITV piece Finding Derek, which documented her husband Derek Draper's horrific battle with coronavirus that almost cost him his life.

"I am thrilled to be part of this fascinating new series that uses the most incredibly advanced technology to help us get a better understanding of how our bodies function when they require urgent medical attention," she said.

"I believe we have all become increasingly curious about our health and well-being since the start of the pandemic, including me personally.

"I'm looking forward to delving deeper into the fascinating, emotional and empowering journey of all our patients and for them to see what is going on inside their own bodies."

Dr Singh added: "As a medical doctor who is committed to making health care better, it's been incredibly exciting to be part of this show and to see, first-hand, the possibilities opened up by augmented reality for clinical practice.

"We so often feel as though our doctors don't get us, or that we only really understand a fraction of what we're being told in the clinic. What if augmented reality helped bridge the gap? What if it allowed doctors and patients to connect and make more of their conversations in ways that simply weren't possible before?

"At a time when health has never mattered more, I'm thrilled and privileged to be part of public service broadcasting that explores these questions with the British public."

Doctor, Can You See Me Now? is expected to air on BBC Two later this year.
