Launching on 30th May 2023, The Referral… with Dr Karan is your one-stop-shop demystifying the world of medicine and health. Join NHS surgeon Dr Karan Rajan for weekly conversations covering health-related news stories such as doctors striking, potentially ‘awkward’ topics you want a steer on but don’t know where the turn, and busting medical myths like ‘masturbation ruins sex with your partner’.
An NHS surgeon for over 8 years, Dr Karan has been bringing his passion for medicine and education to TikTok, YouTube and Instagram since 2020. He’s amassed over 7 million followers on social media, and is one of the most successful health and science content creators on social media. His refreshingly frank no-nonsense health advice videos combine education, entertainment and generous servings of dark humour – it’s meducation! His podcast promises even more, an audio antidote in a world of wellness waffle.
Each week on The Referral, Dr Karan will be joined by an expert to discuss a particular topic. They’ll be seeking to replace misinformation with fact, wading through the medical garbage that exists online so you don’t have to. Whether it’s a professor from Oxford University, a scientist, a fellow doctor or a pornstar, the aim will be clear: offer straightforward tips and practical takeaways and improve listeners’ day-to-day lives.
