When a search for a local GP goes viral! ft CAUK fundraiser Michelle Nineham


After recruitment for a new GP in the local community failed to receive any applications, our CAUK fundraiser Michelle Nineham got together with her local community to launch a campaign to search for a replacement for the soon-to-retire local doctor.

Over 500 residents of small Cornish town – a long way from the nearest hospital – took part in the appeal and raising awareness of the critical issue of GP shortages across the country.

We are very proud of Michelle for the success of this campaign, and thank her for shining a light on an issue that we know affects many people across our cavernoma community.

Find out more about the campaign via their website, Lostwithiel Needs a Doctor , and watch the full video below!
