So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections.The worst areas to live for seeing a GP are today exposed by an analysis of inspection reports.Rahul Chaudhauri, head of primary care at Thurrock CCG, said: ‘In Thurrock we face a unique situation where many of our GPs are working single-handed in premises that are often converted homes, rather than dedicated healthcare buildings.

The Mole skirts the northern suburbs of Crawley where it is joined by its first major tributary, Ifield Brook, which drains Ifield Mill Pond.

The first gauging station on the Mole is south of Gatwick Airport (57 m above OD).

These include East London and Essex where many practices are run by a single doctor nearing retirement working out of a few converted rooms of their house.

The analysis by the Health Service Journal (HSJ) looked at the inspection reports of 6,476 GP surgeries - the majority of the 7,700 in England.

Annually the catchment area receives 761 mm rain each year, the greatest average level of rainfall is 800 mm rain around Crawley.

The Mole catchment reaches a maximum elevation of 265 m (869 ft) above Ordnance Datum at Leith Hill to the south west of Dorking.

The course of the Mole within the airport perimeter has been altered several times since commercial flights began in 1945; however the meanders visible on the 1839 tithe map in the 1.5 km stretch immediately north of the runway were reinstated in 1999, in a £1.2 million project to facilitate airport expansion.

The Mole enters Surrey to the south of Horley, where it meets the Gatwick Stream, a tributary draining Worth Forest to the southeast of Crawley.

There is only one aquifer in the drainage basin, at Fetcham, which means that the majority of the water in the river is from surface drainage, particularly from Gatwick Airport and the urban areas of Horley and Crawley, and that the flow rate responds rapidly to rainfall.

River Mole rises in Baldhorns Copse 0.7 km (0.4 mi) to the south of the village of Rusper in West Sussex.

During the second half of the 20th century pollution levels in the river were high, however since 1995 the water quality has improved dramatically and the Mole now boasts the greatest diversity of fish species of any river in England.
