Dr Rosena Allin-Khan is an MP and A&E Doctor who joins me on the podcast to talk about the circumstances that led to her embarking on a career in politics.

After qualifying as a doctor Rosena spent time working as an humanitarian aid doctor in Gaza, Asia, Israel and Africa before working as a junior doctor in the Accident & Emergency department of St George's Hospital in Tooting, where she is now the elected Member of Parliament.
