Burnout forces almost 10% of GPs to take time off work as pressure on occupational health services grows


The Romanian doctors interviewed last week had excellent English and were highly intelligent and employable. They said that the wages available in the UK were massively higher than there. Equivalent qualifications within the EU must be recognised and it is illegal to discriminate. Why do you think the situation for Romanians and Bulgarians will be different from polish doctors who came here a few years ago? There are many excellent, fluent English speaking polish GPs, one of which is taking over half of my workload when I leave at the end of December.
