GMC warns that 60% of EU doctors are considering quitting the country


I know, Sceptic Monkey and Azeem Majeed, that UK is a democratic and tolerant country. I also totally understand that the citizens in a democratic country must be free to choose what they suppose it's better. However what is quite difficult to understand is the total absence of any plan for the future. I also wrote to GMC chairman and he was really frustrated by the situation. My EU colleagues and me had all the support from the UK staff and from all the patients (whatever they voted), but this uncertainty is a poison for us. Now I'm facing the difficult situation to choose: back in Italy in an University Hospital in Piedmont or risking the unknown with an University Hospital in London. I'm not thinking to myself but to my family too. I accept any advice...
