To explain what a doctor does

In today's lesson, we join Miss Sidenius in learning about what doctors do to help us and how they treat people when they are ill. We will have a go at role playing being a doctor and writing a prescription for our patient. To extend this lesson, you could talk about the difference between visiting the GP to see a doctor and going to hospital.
