Listen: Kildare GP To Poplation Ratio Is Well Below Average.

: 07/17/2018 - 16:32

Kildare's GP to population ratio is well below the national average.

In the NHS and in countries such as Canada and Australia, there are around 80 General Practitioners to every 100,000 people.

In Kildare, that ratio is 41: 100,000.

Kildare GP, and Specialist in General Practice & Occupational Medicine, Dr. Brendan O'Shea, indicates that there is a stark difference between international norms, and the experience in this county.
