Polegate MP, Maria Caulfield, has welcomed news from the Health Secretary that an extra 500 medial school places will become available next year.

Not only is this the biggest ever expansion to the number of doctor training places, but it is also one of the most inclusive; ensuring everyone has the chance to study medicine regardless of their background, and ensuring the NHS is equipped for the future with doctors serving in the areas that need them the most.

Maria Caulfield MP said, “The Government have committed to training an extra 1,500 doctors a year by 2020, raising the current number by 25 per cent and ensuring our health service continues to meet increasing demand.

“An extra 500 medical school places next year will ensure even more much needed doctors for our NHS.”
