Dr. Mark Hamilton

After graduating from Medical school with an MB ChB (Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery), Mark went on to gather experience in several fields such as Geriatric medicine, Orthopaedic surgery and Anaesthetics.

His ease in imparting knowledge to others was realised during his teaching at the University of Manchester where he lectured in Anatomy and Biomedical Sciences.

In 1999 Radio 1 decided that Mark was the person to work on the station's cult show "The Sunday Surgery" with Sara Cox, then Emma B (currently with Letitia). The show has won 5 Sony Radio Awards (1 Gold, 2 Silver, 2 Bronze) and 2 silver Radio & Music Awards.

From there he was asked to become advisor to the BBC for their 2000 campaigns for Drug Education and Mental Health. Affirming his talent for communicating to his audience Radio 1 placed him as their "Agony Uncle" for their One Life website - with which he is still involved.

Never one for the quiet life Mark also manages to keep up his DJ skills which have been fine tuned up and down the country where his funky house music is in great demand at festivals, clubs and universities.

Over the past few years Mark has moved into television, presenting the series How Long Will You Live, and contributing to shows such as the Heaven and Earth show, Big Brothers Little Brother and This Morning.

Mark is currently a clinical fellow in A&E, married with two children.
