Dire shortage of GPs forces Council to request government support

I think most residents of Sittingbourne will be acutely aware of the lack of GPs in Sittingbourne, especially given the stark disparity with surrounding areas such as Faversham.

So it comes as no surprise in these times of diminishing public services that we have still have inadequate access to healthcare provision in Sittingbourne.

Whether the government will actually do anything is questionable, and we have already stated that prior initiatives by the NHS Kent and Medway Integrated Care Board to recruit more GPs were not only inadequate but excluded practices with the worst GP to Patient ratios.

Where do we go from here?
