Volunteers needed for BBC series -Trust Me I’m A Doctor

The BBC have asked us to help them find volunteers for the next series of Trust Me I’m A Doctor which will be shown on BBC2. The programme is working with Ulster University and need volunteers in Northern Ireland for a new study. Could you be one of those volunteers?

One of Trust Me’s ‘Big Experiments’, which form the backbone of each programme, is coming to Belfast and they need a willing group of people to take part in it.

Katie, a researcher at the BBC told us, “We are currently setting up our topics for the next series of  BBC2’s flagship health and medical series, Trust Me I’m A Doctor. This will be series 9! The ‘Big Experiments’ are a huge part of each programme and we would love people from Northern Ireland who meet the criteria to get in touch with us.”
