East Kent is a great place to live and work for GPs starting out. £100,000 a year here goes so much further than it does in Surrey and London. The GP training Chiefs push new GPs to London rather than here which is not right.
Recently, I sat down with the NHS South Kent Coast Clinical Commissioning Group to discuss GP recruitment, how our CCG are leading the fight to secure a fair share of funding for our local GP's from NHS England, and how they are working to improve provision for local mental health services.
It is important that we fight for a fair share of health care funding for Dover and Deal primary care. So I'm taking this up with the Health Secretary.
