Headline

Junior doctors to stage full walk-out under BMA plans for industrial action

Comment

Having spoken with many junior doctors I think the damage is now already done and we are heading for a big workforce problem regardless of outcome. Tuition fees, educational expenses, poor working environment, expensive pension, unaffordable housing and now a clearly unfair employer make medicine unattractive in the Uk in the short and medium term. The Facebook generation are more savvy and mobile and are voting with their feet and going abroad or diversifying into other non traditional roles. Witness the growth of Gplocums who have lots of sideline opportunities. Why be a partner and have to deal with the unfolding workforce shortage if you do not need the extra money that some partnerships bring. A shame really, as the NHS is a wonderful thing, but values run counter to the current ethos of the Tory who are here to stay while Corbyn continues to knit yoghurt in opposition. A frustratedGp
