Only 100 extra GPs added to workforce in six months


Currently admission onto the performers list is adding a further barrier to recruitment to NHS England. With no reciprocal arrangement with the Welsh or Scottish performers list and it taking up to 3 months for new registrars or doctors to get on the performers list. Instead of facilitating recruitment the momentum seems to be creating further hurdles. How new GPs with appropriate training, documentations and jobs to start are being made to wait unemployed is a administrative moral scandal.
