Described as an “inspiration” by Jamie Oliver, as Consultant Cardiologist Dr Malhotra has become one of the most influential and well-known health campaigners in the UK
He writes regularly in academic medical journals and print newspapers such as the Guardian, Telegraph and Daily Mail and is regularly seen on broadcast media in his campaign against sugar and highlighting the harms of too much medicine. Dr Malhotra has been named alongside anti-obesity activists such as Michael Bloomberg and Michelle Obama and last year was featured in the New York Times on his documentary film “The Big Fat Fix” which in July premiered in British parliament. He was lead author in the BMJ paper that launched the UK Academy of Medical Royal Colleges Choosing Wisely campaign in 2015. In 2016 he was named in the Sunday Times Debretts list as one of the most influential people in science in medicine in the UK in a list which included Professor Stephen Hawking. In 2015 he became the youngest member to be appointed to the board of trustees of independent health think tank, The King’s Fund.
