Town Recruits New Doctor

The only remaining doctor in Lostwithiel, a small town in England, was on the verge of retiring but struggled to find a suitable replacement. Residents decided to help recruit potential doctors by creating a music video to an original song: “We’ve folks with asthma and young new mothers, we’ve limping fathers and snot filled others. We’ve tons of children all so infectious who need a doctor. We’ve got the love if you’ve got the time.” The unique video featured everyone from school children, to butchers, to the town church pastor. Thankfully, it caught the attention of Dr. Bethan Woodfield, who grew up in Lostwithiel before pursuing a career in medicine. Dr. Woodfield was officially hired to take over the community’s medical practice and is happy to be giving back to her hometown.
