DR EMIL Shehadeh is a consderable presence in health care in Thurrock. If there is anyone who will have their finger on the pulse in relation to health issues in Thurrock then it is he. He has practices in both Grays and Tilbury. He is clearly a doctor who wants to see health care progress in Thurrock.
It is with that in mind that he wishes to see the growing influence of GP consortia in Thurrock.
If you want an opinion on the PCT, go to Dr Shehadeh. If you want a second opinion, go to him as well.
He is all for “practice-based” commissioning. He believes the PCT is being obstructive. Why? “Because the logical conclusion is that you don’t need a PCT.”
YT interviewed Dr Shehadeh to gauge the future of GP consortia and whether he feels the South West Essex PCT has a viable future?
