Another 20 GPs from EU defy Brexit to solve British recruitment woes

Comment

Being a NHS GP is toxic in numerous ways. Until the job has some enjoyment few will pick this career option. Recruiting GPs has always been difficult, apart from a short period after the 2004 contract. The UK is not unique. It has already become difficult to recruit GPs just about everywhere in the world. GPs have been 'dumped on' by everyone, considered as the lowest Doctors, little reward and respected by nobody. So no surprise that few want to become GPs.
