Q: We have at the moment got a clear view across the fields to Tharston Church…many of us bought our properties DUE to this outlook..and paid a premium because of the ‘openess’ …what are you planning to give us to look at in return?

Q: If it is not legally possible to secure funding from the developer to help expand the doctors surgery what help will they get to expand when their services are already overstretched and there is a well documented shortage of GPs throughout the whole country?

A: by South Norfolk District Council September 2017

Doctors working as General Practitioners (GPs) are independent contractors of the NHS and so are a private businesses. New surgeries are funded and instigated through the relevant primary health care body, for example NHS England. The ongoing issue of recruitment of GPs is also something the NHS England are working on to address as a wider issue.
