Fears that the UK could lose more than 3,000 existing GPs due to Brexit


(1) As I said before , the incoming government has political , legislative and moral responsibilities to settle this issue of EU citizens currently working in U.K. To be 'strong and stable' and drive them out after Brexit is politically suicidal. Cannot see that happening by my common sense . But practically it is a headache to No.10 Downing Street , especially there are three times the number of EU citizens in U.K. compared to U.K. citizens in EU. (2) Further demoralising these EU GP colleagues because of Brexit is certainly another level of consideration for them to leave this country voluntarily. People like Simon Stevens should be very sensitive to this issue. (3) Be careful of this 'xenophobic trap' when one starts to compare who is more competent , who is not so qualified....... We should be fighting the same common enemy
