An application to build a medical school in Lincolnshire has been submitted.

It's a joint bid between the University of Lincoln and University of Nottingham.

The idea is that students will be able to apply for the University of Nottingham medicine degree but will study in a new building on the Lincoln campus. 

It would be an answer to long held calls for a local medical school, as the region continues to suffer a recruitment crisis for emergency and general practice staff.
