NHS England widens £20m scheme to recruit GPs from EU despite Brexit


It's depressing in the extreme that the UK has to poach GPs from other countries because it can't pursuade its own Drs to do the job. What does that say about this country and the way it has treated its work force? Despite working for the NHS for the last 7 years I'm still taken aback by how utterly parasitic this health service is. It uses the people it employs, it's cynically consumes their enthusiasm to run a cut price service and when it's done and can't find enough human fuel to keep the boilers running it goes abroad hunting the desperate, naive or disadvantaged to keep the system running. What's with the aversion to looking after the folk you had already?
