John Whittingdale raised with the Secretary of State for Health his concern about the difficulty faced in recruiting GPs to work in primary care local. This has led to both Blackwater Medical Centre and Longfield Medical Centre in Maldon closing their doors to new patients.

 

John Whittingdale welclomed the Government’s funding of an additional 1,500 medical training places each year and called for some of those to go to Anglia Ruskin School of Medicine in Chelmsford.
