TV’s favourite GP, Dr Amir Khan became Leeds Hospitals Charity’s first ambassador in March 2021. The Bradford-born GP has worked in West Yorkshire for over a decade, where he first appeared on hit TV series GPs: Behind Closed Doors and is now well-known for regular appearances on ITV’s Lorraine and Good Morning Britain.

To announce his new role with the charity, Dr Amir joined volunteers at the Leeds Covid-19 Vaccination Centre- Elland Road, which is being run by Leeds Teaching Hospitals, as part of a city-wide partnership.

“It is an absolute privilege to be joining Leeds Hospitals Charity as their first ever ambassador. Being from Yorkshire, and working within the NHS myself, I can see first-hand the great support these charities provide to our NHS organisations. The NHS is fantastic, but Leeds Hospitals Charity provides that over and above support to staff and patients, funding the things the NHS wouldn’t usually provide.”
