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


Has anybody ever seen a breakdown of the oft cited "£220,000" cost of producing a doctor? Would be interesting to see what has been included, and whether this cost has been impacted by the increasing personal contributions to tuition fees. I've seen previous estimates include salary, which seems a fairly loaded way to inflate the perceived cost to the public.
