TILBURY is short of fourteen doctors. Some say that if this was many other areas then there would be packed out meetings, petitions, Facebook campaigns, the whole nine yards.
Instead, fifteen people out of a possible 12,000 attended a key public meeting on health care in Tilbury.
As philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote: Man is born free and yet everywhere he is in chains".
As the eighteenth century philosopher was;t available for comment, we went to outspoken general practitioner, Dr Shehadeh, who has a practice in the heart of Tilbury and asked him if there was a cure for the ills of health practice and prevention in Tilbury.
