Britain's first asylum camp to get own GPs and dentists

The 1,500 migrants aged 18 to 40 expected to be housed on a former RAF base in Linton on Ouse in north Yorkshire will have access to a “bespoke” health service comprising not only GPs and dentists but also chemists and opticians.

Campaigners against the camp say it will be a better service than that provided to residents of Linton-on-Ouse whose nearest GP is four miles away, closest private dentist more than seven miles away and whose mental health services are straining under a two year waiting list.

The plans, set out in documents from the Vale of York’s clinical commissioning group (CCG), said the specialist on-site health services were necessary to prevent the “fragile” existing NHS provision in the area becoming overloaded.

My first response was to be outraged, but it's true that if the camp has it's own doctor and dentist it won't put any more pressure on existing local services. I feel for the local people though.
