Staying Healthy: A Doctor's Guide
SBS  |  August 21, 2017

Dr Pixie McKenna is crunching data from the UK's National Health Service in order to reveal what made people sick in 2016. She believes that if we understand when and how the nation falls ill, we'll all have a better chance of staying well in the year ahead. Every time anyone in the UK goes to the doctor, collects a prescription, signs up to a fitness regime or just buys some headache tablets - that information is recorded. Dr Pixie reveals what this fascinating data says about our health and how we can learn to avoid seasonal spikes in injuries, infections and even accidents.
