Medicine degrees offered through clearing 'for first time ever'


It is arguable whether this country, particularly the tories, will borrow more to pay for the NHS. Trillions are owed all over the world and the tories seem determined to balance the government expenditure. The same does not apply in other countries. My view is that the government will not give any more finance to the NHS. This government couldn't care if less students apply to do study medicine. Even if the places end up not being filled, and we all know that this is not going to happen, the government would still not worry. The tories will force the UK immigration doors open, despite Brexit, to any doctor in the world to come here. There are countless numbers in Russia, Cuba..... that will arrive and work for half the rates that we get. There will be no restriction on entry, despite Royal Colleges complaining. Much care will be delivered virtually through video and telephone consultations by doctors from India... It's called Capitalism!
