Medical School Success - Press Release 23rd March 2018
Date published: 23/03/2018
The agreement to fund a Medical School based in Canterbury is a game changer for the provision of medical services in Kent and Medway. The effect will not only be that there will be a flow of bright young enthusiastic doctors to our local health economy but also that more GPs and Consultants will be attracted to work in Kent and Medway. The focus on primary and community care as well as the obvious needs of our community are two reasons why this application has been approved. This is really a very exciting time and a real opportunity to improve outcomes for patients.
Dr Gupta, the chair of Kent LMC said
“Kent LMC is delighted on the news that Kent's bid for a medical school has been successful. The new medical school in Canterbury will be instrumental in achieving sustainable medical services for the people of Kent. We would like to congratulate everyone involved in the bid.”
