Newly trained doctors to be tied to NHS for four years, announces Hunt

Comment

When does the rule forcing doctors to have to work in the NHS for 4 years start? Is it for the students currently in the system or any future ones? And what does he mean by saying "all those that train on the nhs will be required to work a minimum of 4 years for the NHS???" When I was a med student I never considered I worked ON the NHS at all. I can safely say that this will ensure that my children will NEVER follow in my medical footsteps!!!!! One was tempted but this will seal the deal for her going into another career. Thanks Jezza! She is an extremely bright girl and will now realise that she would be throwing her life away by becoming a doctor. P.s this would put not only UK students off studying in the UK but also overseas ones who fork out loads of money for the privalige.
