Labour believes north Wales medical school is "thinking too long-term"
At least, that was what Vaughan Gething was reported by Radio Wales as saying in response to pressure from Plaid Cymru and professional bodies for a medical school in Bangor. The online report is more cool. However, it would be typical of politicians not to think beyond the next election. Labour has been in power, alone or in coalition, since the Assembly was set up. If they had ensured that medical training was augmented across the regions, it is almost certain that we would not now be complaining about the shortage of GPs in practices throughout the country.
