Steve Knightly - Member of Show of Hands

"As the husband of a Doctor in General Practice I am well aware of the extraordinary range of skills available to our medical practitioners. It's fantastic to see these very skills deployed on behalf of fellow doctors who have found themselves uprooted and displaced. I wish the project every success in its attempt to restore refugee doctors back to the calling that first inspired them coming to the aid of their fellow citizens wherever they may be found."

“The Lincolnshire Refugee Doctor Project is a fantastic initiative: It combines the humanitarian aim of supporting refugees and their families with helping the NHS secure the number of doctors it needs. And it's so much cheaper than training a new doctor from scratch! Could there be a better definition of win:win”

Sarah Parkin - Media Lead

"I am always so delighted to be involved anything to do with the Lincolnshire Refugee Doctor Project. It is the ultimate win win project. Every bit of money and time you can give will go to not only supporting refugees, but ultimately improving health care for our communities."

Ben Hudson - Social & Pastoral Lead

“The Lincolnshire Refugee Doctor Project really is a win-win-win. Through the project, local communities gain much needed medically-qualified personnel, the doctors are able to return to the profession they are trained in and love, and there is a huge cost saving for the NHS relative to the typical cost of training new doctors from scratch. But without the kindness, support and generosity of the general public, none of this will be possible - it is for that reason that I strongly encourage everyone to contribute whatever they can to making this a reality.”
