Dr Ellie Cannon will appear on our screens in a new Channel 4 show featuring a “diagnosis phobic” family, next week.

The Jewish News resident GP appears alongside Dr Xand Van Tulleken in Doctor In Your House.

Both were drafted in to stay with the White family for one weekend and help solve an array of health issues for the parents and two teenage daughters, ranging from snoring and cholesterol to high blood pressure and skin complaints.

“Essentially they are a family in denial about their health,” explained the Cambridge-educated doctor, who works in St John’s Wood. “There are no major problems to diagnose, but there’s a lot not right with them.

“It’s very common for people not to seek medical advice for softer health concerns, because our access to general practice is not what it used to be, people lead busy lives and they convince themselves that they are doing the right thing to solve issues – but that’s not always the case.”

The show also highlights how some of the family’s health issues can be resolved simply by changing their lifestyles and communicating with each other about their concerns.

Doctor in Your House is broadcast next Tuesday, 8pm on Channel 4


Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...


Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
