Thousands of patients are bding forced to wait to see a doctor

:00:12.:00:14.

because GPs don't want to work in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

:00:15.:00:20.

which says hundreds of training positions for GPs remain unfilled.

:00:21.:00:24.

Our health correspondent Vicky Johnson reports.

:00:25.:00:35.

GPs are, they say, busier than ever. But fewer new doctors are whlling to

:00:59.:01:05.

there will be more on`call shifts, night shifts, certainly out of our

:01:06.:01:09.

shifts and also weekends. And so I think that a lot of the attraction

:01:10.:01:12.

for some people is now perh`ps not there any more. Two senior GPs have

been able to `` unable to rdtire at this practice because they cannot

recruit pained them. To senhor dock is wanted to retire but bec`use we

:01:27.:01:32.

cannot replace them, they h`ve stayed on. Doctors haven't given

:01:33.:01:38.

more responsibility for health care in their own areas. The govdrnment

:01:39.:01:43.

insists that the recent reforms should have strengthened services.

:01:44.:01:56.

In a statement, they said... Just as some surgeries are struggling to

:01:57.:01:59.

cope with demand, NHS England has confirmed today that they are

:02:00.:02:02.

considering closing this pr`ctice in Lincoln, meaning almost 3000

:02:03.:02:07.

patients could have to find a new GP. But doctors are warning that

:02:08.:02:16.

this increasing shortage cotld mean that the situation will detdriorate

:02:17.:02:17.

further. Millions of pounds

:02:18.:02:19.

of taxpayers? money is being wasted on cleaning up rubbish in

:02:20.:02:21.

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Local councils say that mondy could

:02:22.:02:24.

be better spent elsewhere if people took responsibility

:02:25.:02:26.

and picked up their litter. A sunny day at the beach, btt you do

:02:27.:02:43.

not have to look far to find litter. Described as anti`social, unsightly,

:02:44.:02:48.

and a blight on our countryside one council is now cracking down on the

:02:49.:02:55.

costly problem. There has bden an increase, we have no idea why. One

:02:56.:02:59.

lane pens is an awful lot of money to us. I am not going to tell you

:03:00.:03:04.

what my favourite things ard to spend the money on, but it could be

:03:05.:03:08.

spent a lot more wisely than on picking up litter. Some councils

:03:09.:03:23.

spend around ?1 million. Thd cost in the UK is ?1 billion every xear But

:03:24.:03:28.

it is not just lazy or careless seaside visitors that are c`using

:03:29.:03:35.

the problem here, the Kendall's new campaign `` the council's ndw

:03:36.:03:41.

campaign is aimed at local residents as well. There are bins so H do not

know why people do not use them I do not walk not walk a few letres to

obtain. People are walking on broken bottles and things. Those who query

:03:54.:04:01.

up the mess can only watch `s people drop rubbish. We see lots of people

:04:02.:04:06.

going round, enjoying themsdlves, ice cream, chips, that sort of

:04:07.:04:12.

thing. And we do see people drop litter and it is very frustrating

:04:13.:04:15.

because our powers are somewhat limited as to what we can do. It is

:04:16.:04:20.

hoped that the campaign will reach the conscience of those responsible.

:04:21.:04:29.

Samantha Harding is from thd Campaign to Protect Rural England.

:04:30.:04:31.

Tonight I asked her what shd thinks of people who drop litter,

:04:32.:04:34.

including those who throw it from vehicles, like lorry drivers.

:04:35.:04:39.

There is some research into Borrie drivers,

having a lovely time, this hs beautiful, and then they le`ve

:05:19.:05:20.

behind this disgusting mess that either does not get cleared up, or
