Aussie doctors join Embarrassing Bodies Down Under

2013-05-27_1044Foxtel’s upcoming Embarrassing Bodies Down Under has announced three local doctors to join with UK host Dr Christian Jessen.

They are: Dr Ginni Mansberg (pictured), Dr Sam Hay and Dr Brad McKay.

A mobile clinic will be looking for potential patients, beginning in Parramatta.

A GP for 20 years, Dr Ginni Mansberg is a well known face on television with regular segments on Channel Seven’s Sunrise and The Morning Show. She writes for numerous magazines including Women’s Health and Practical Parenting, and is the author of three books. Dr Ginni currently practices in Sydney’s San Souci, where she has pursued a special interest in Women’s Health and Paediatrics.

Dr Sam Hay has been working in general practice since 2004. He has also spent 10 years with the military as an Army doctor, deploying six times overseas, including Bougainville, the Solomon Islands and Afghanistan. Dr Sam is now part-owner of a new, collaborative General Practice that services patients in Sydney’s inner-west. Dr Sam has completed postgraduate training in Sports Medicine and Paediatrics, which help him to focus on managing the multitude of issues that affect young families.

Dr Brad McKay is a passionate general practitioner in the Inner Suburbs of Melbourne. He was accepted into Medicine at Monash University when he was just 16 years old and was qualified as a doctor by the age of 21. Dr Brad lived and worked in Ireland as an Emergency Registrar, before returning to work in Australia with Aboriginal Communities on the Central Coast of New South Wales. He currently works out of a practice in Richmond and is interested in Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Mental Health and Sexual Health.

Prior to Dr Christian’s arrival next month, these three highly experienced local doctors will be working out of the Embarrassing Bodies Down Under mobile clinic in the search for patients to appear in the series.

The first stop is Parramatta, with the clinic located outside the Town Hall on Church Street, Parramatta. Potential patients can simply drop in for a consultation with one of the doctors. Alternatively, they can head to the website for more details:

Embarrassing Bodies Down Under is being produced by Shine Australia exclusively for Foxtel’s LifeStyle YOU channel. The series will go to air later this year.
