Dr Philippa Kaye

Dr Philippa Kaye is an inspirational GP, author, journalist and TV broadcaster with an particular interest in women’s health.

Philippa is a regular presenter on This Morning and Talk TV, and often contributes to written and online media, including being the medical expert for several magazines including My Weekly Special and That’s Life.

Philippa has worked in paediatrics, gynaecology, care of the elderly, acute medicine, psychiatry and is now a GP.

In 2007, Philippa published her first book The Fertility Handbook and since then has published a further ten books on subjects including cancer, menopause, fertility, pregnancy, child health, child development and diabetes.

Explaining medical problems and procedures in simple language that non-medics can understand is one of Philippa’s strengths and is evident in her success on TV and in her books.

In 2019 and at the age of 39 her life and career would take an unexpected turn when she was diagnosed with bowel cancer. Within a week Philippa was in hospital having the tumour in her bowel removed and after chemotherapy and further surgery she got the all clear in 2020.

Philippa found writing a diary helped her cope with her cancer diagnosis and her subsequent experience. The retelling of her cancer journey and the emotional outpouring was turned into a her book: Doctors Get Cancer too.

Philippa is much in demand for TV and corporate work on a wide range of health and wellness topics.

Type Of Speaker


Dr Philippa Kaye was a brilliant speaker, bridging her expertise as a GP with her media experience, making all information shared both engaging and accessible. She covered some great topics; from reaching diverse communities to combatting mis-information, through to her insights into the menopause and taboo topics, and her very personal experience of bowel cancer. She was open with her knowledge and passions, making us both laugh and cry. Incredibly personal, passionate and powerful – which resulted in a great event!

The benefit of a live TV veteran like Philippa is she not has great credibility and knowledge in her field, but she knows how to think on her feet to get the message across. She really knows how to
speak with a sense of fun, even about challenging topics, and stay focused on the points that matter.
Medical matters can prove to be dry on occasion, but that’s never a problem with Philippa, who knows how to bring huge issues to the fore while keeping everyone hooked!
