In the first in the series of Doctor Doctor presenters Dr Llinos Roberts and Dr Gwyn Jones are at the Nightingale and Genesis Cancer Prevention Centre in Manchester - the only establishment of its kind in Europe offering diagnostic and treatment services of the highest standard to women and men with breast cancer. As well as their work treating patients, the centre undertakes innovative work on the genes which cause breast cancer - the most common cancer in Britain.
The centre has devised a two-day diet which they offer as a way of reducing the risk of cancer and other serious illnesses - a diet which involves managing what a person eats for two days and eating normally and sensibly for the remaining five days of the week. Llinos discusses the diet with Delyth McEntee from Stockport, who, along with her husband, has been using the diet for three months. Llinos also meets Professor Gareth Evans, who lives in Cilcain in Flintshire, and leads the centre's research into the development of breast cancer.
The programme also features anaesthetist, Dr Huw Davies at Royal Glamorgan Hospital, injecting analgesic into a mother's spinal cord in order to ease the birth of her baby son. And we hear the heart-warming story of 14 year old Rhys Davies from Nercwys, near Mold and his battle with bone cancer since the age of three.
