Replace doctor trainee bursaries with loans, think-tank recommends

Comment

Introduce this and along comes the next Jeremy Hunt with added power to impose appalling conditions on his captive Dr work force. 'I own you' he'll effectively say - 'Leave the NHS and you owe me thousands and thousands for your training'. Does anyone seriously think this wouldn't happen? Does anyone genuinely believe this kind of control wouldn't be shamelessly abused by the government with a complete monopoly in employment and financial penalty for any Drs walking away. It'd be like signing away your life to the devil.
