Overseas GP recruitment scheme highlights the Government's failure

Comment

Fine for the NHS governing bodies to seek to employ GPs from anywhere in order to stem the tide and plug the gaps that are appearing in our devastated and demoralised primary care health care system... so long as the employed replacements are working on equitable contracts and are suitably qualified. All foreign doctors should pass through the RCGP exam process without favour. They should then enter GP in the same way as UK graduates, no favours attached. Lets see how many foreign GPs that attracts.
