As a mother to two young kids, she has a specialist interest in maternal and family health as well as mental health. Recognising a need to offer parents a real talking, easy-to-understand format when it comes to looking after their family needs, Punam set up 'The Medic Mum' Podcast during the COVID-19 pandemic with a fellow GP mother.

It has been hugely popular and the podcast was shortlisted for 'Best Podcast' at the Glomama Awards 2022.

She is a columnist for The I, and was shortlisted for the 'British Journalism Awards' 2021 for 'Comment Journalism'. She has recently authored her first children’s book “How to be a doctor and other life-saving jobs.”

She identifies as being Scottish-Indian and is always keen to bring both elements of her vibrant cultures to the scene.
