There is a warning that a GP crisis - which means ever-increasing waiting times in East Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire - is deepening.
New figures have revealed 500 GPs are needed, with the NHS seemingly struggling to fill the void. Now it is having to turn overseas to help fill it. Fiona Dwyer reports:
Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire is suffering from a doctor's recruitment crisis, according to one of the region's GPs.
Dr David Pearson claims that around 50 general practitioners are needed across the region, with Hull the area with the biggest shortage of around 50 doctors.
