NHS offering £50k per year for US physician associates to practise in underdoctored areas

Comment

This is not generous and I would be surprised if hundreds flock to uproot themselves. All BMA salaried doctors' contracts and nurse practitioner contracts are based on 37.5 hours a week ( although I know many doctors voluntarily do more) This offer equates to approximately £38 000 a year for a "standard" working week. Hardly massive!
